County Executive Race Heats Up
Since the last update, Republican entrant Dirk Haire has dropped out, and has now been replaced by sitting State Delegate David Boschert. Boschert is reportedly trying to reach out to some in the environmental community to build his green credentials, and recently made a visit to a conference aimed at getting a watershed restoration fund put in place in the County. We're sad to see Haire go though, left with the knowledge that we'll have to wait at least another 4 years for an Executive who could nominally be mistaken for an adult film star.
On the Democratic side, Sheriff George Johnson and County Department of Parks & Recreation Head, Dennis Callahan, continue to putter along, getting lots of face time at public events, but generally staying out of the news. Councilwoman Barbara Samorajczyk, is still apparently exploring a run, but hasn't formally announced. There's a lot to improve in Anne Arundel County government, but the silence from the candidates, so far, is deafening.
