In preparation for the upcoming 2018 election, our Legislative Affairs Committee including Chamber President Leonardo McClarty put together questionnaires covering a wide range of issues affecting Howard County’s business community and residents to be completed by candidates running for local office.
Following the primary elections, we updated the questionnaires so that they no longer include responses from candidates who have been eliminated from the races for Howard County Executive, Howard County Council, Howard County Board of Education and the General Assembly. You can see detailed responses from each of the candidates who completed the questionnaires below.
- Responses from candidates for Howard County Executive
- Responses from candidates for Howard County Council
- Responses from candidates for the General Assembly
- Responses from candidates for the Howard County Board of Education
In addition to the responses above, our Legislative Affairs Committee is in the process of interviewing each of the candidates for Howard County Council over the next few months to dig deeper into the issues that affect Howard County’s business community the most. We will share the results of those interviews as they are completed in our weekly e-newsletters.
