“This county is made up of half Republicans, and half Democrats with a sprinkling of Independents. It’s incumbent upon us to have a council that reflects that.”

  • Some of My Qualifications

    Volunteer with Rotary, Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay, Waterfowl Festival, Talbot Hospice, The Frederick Douglass Honor Society; Named the Mid-Shore Woman of Distinction by the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay in 2012; 2010 Directors’ Service Award from the Rotary Club of Easton for work on “Shoeboxes for Soldiers.”

  • What I'm For

    If we keep the majority of our growth limited to the towns we will be able to maintain the rural character of the county we all cherish. In addition, we must be smart about our growth, I would like to see our Office of Economic Development focus on attracting ‘clean companies’ such as back office for government, high tech incubators and cyber security. These jobs are well paying and the state has some excellent programs to help attract these businesses.

  • One of My Ideas

    As a former economic development professional in Easton, I hear time and time again about the need for better vocational training. This is where I see the business community partnering with the schools to offer apprenticeships in areas such as plumbing/heating/HVAC, automotive technician, land planning and development, farming and boat building. Chesapeake College is a wonderful resource for vocational training in many areas also.

I come from a very close family.  Although I have no children of my own, I am very proud of my nephew Brendan Curry and his wife Kristina.  Both currently serve in the US Navy, and are stationed in Norfolk, VA.

As a leader, I understand the importance of working together.  I am proud to have been Easton’s first Main Street Manager, Easton Utilities Corporate Communications Director, a member of the Easton Town Council and Easton’s Economic Development Director.  As a team player I know how to work across the aisle and get things done!

I have had the pleasure of living in Maryland for over 30 years and although I am not a native, Talbot County is my home.  I get my strength from my faith and family.  Both are very important to me.  I am first generation American; my father was born in the west of Ireland.

I can’t win this race without your help. Putting a sign in your yard, a bumper sticker on your car, canvassing with me and donating are all ways of helping.  I look forward to serving as your next Talbot County Council member.  Thank you!
