The Riverside Club, Asbury Solomons’s Democratic Club, hosted a well-attended candidate forum last week. Among those who participated were candidates from District 1: Tricia Powell and Ted Haynie; District 2: Susie Hance-Wells; District 3: Holly Budd; Candidates At large: Greg Brown, Joe Johnson, Duwane Rager, and Matt Bennett. Each candidate was given five minutes to introduce themselves and share their priorities for Calvert County.
The event was hosted and moderated by Paula Willoughby, Chair of the Riverside Club Steering Committee. She explained that while commissioners register in their district or at large, all Calvert voters will vote for all commissioners. When you go to the polls on November 6th, you will be voting for five commissioners: one from each district plus two at-large.
Afterwards the candidates and the audience enjoyed refreshments provided by the Club while the candidates made themselves available for a “meet and greet.” Audience members mingled with the candidates and were able to ask them questions and get to know them better.
