I have spent the last 13 years volunteering and serving the communities of Anne Arundel County. From serving as Chairman of the Anne Arundel County Planning Advisory Board, to volunteering with Lighthouse Shelter, Habitat for Humanity and the Salvation Army, I believe that community involvement is the key to protecting and improving our neighborhoods and preserving our quality of life.
My husband Sam and I have two children, Katrina and Darrian, whom both attend public schools. We are members of St. Andrews United Methodist Church and I serve as Membership Director and Church Councilman.Corkadel is hosting a series of events over the next few weeks:

Jerry Walker writes that:
When I was elected to a leadership position in the Republican party in 2006, I put my name on the ballot to represent the conservative principles that this great country was founded upon. Our fore fathers fought and sacrificed to build a country founded on the timeless principles of limited government, opportunity for all, and personal responsibility. As I seek to serve our community as the next District 7 Councilman, I will ensure that these values are woven throughout the decisions I am asked to make on your behalf.Events????
Our country and our county are experiencing difficult economic times that require government leaders with proven business acumen, the ability to generate creative solutions for difficult problems, and a willingness to both listen to and serve others. We have all experienced the effects of this tough economy, and have had to tighten our financial belts - I believe government needs to do the same. We need to make fiscally responsible decisions with the limited resources we have, balancing the varied needs of our residents, without increasing taxes or fees.
South County residents strive to preserve the beautiful rolling country side and quiet peaceful pace of life. Crofton residents struggle with an expanding population and a lack of the transportation infrastructure necessary to support its continuing growth. All areas of our County are faced with the expansion of Fort Meade required under the BRAC program and it will be the next County Council that will be tasked with responding to the challenges that these changes place on our schools, roads, businesses and housing.
I look forward to working with each of you as we continue to navigate the course that our great Country, State, and County have in front of us. Please take the time to learn more about me and my positions on the issues we face through this website. Register to receive future information from me, consider being a volunteer on my campaign, and please make a financial contribution to help me effectively voice my conservative businessman’s call for responsible government by the people and for the people.

Former Delegate and Conty Concil Candidate and Ehrlich appointee Phil Bissett is a familiar face in the race. This is what he says:
Phil Bissett has the experience and dedication to represent Council District 7 in Anne Arundel County. With more than 20 years in public service, Phil served on the Anne Arundel County Republican Central Committee in 1990 and went on to serve as a member of the Maryland House of Delegates (1991-1999), representing District 30. A proven leader, Phil was elected chairman of the Anne Arundel County delegation, the first Republican and youngest member to serve in that capacity.
As a delegate, Phil worked to hold the line on taxes. He was named the 1994 Legislator of the Year by the State’s Attorneys’ Association for his work protecting the rights of victims of violent crimes and supporting law enforcement. The Maryland Chamber of Commerce named him Legislator of the Year in 1997 for working to curb lawsuit abuse. And, in 1994-95, Mothers Against Drunk Driving honored him for his sponsorship of and dedication to Annie’s Law, which set a new standard for timely and compulsory blood-alcohol testing and toughened drunk driving laws. He also ensured that much-needed funds reached his District when push came to shove at budget time. He has been tireless in his efforts to better our community, serving on numerous boards and commissions, finding solutions and advocating change for the better.
