Maryland Senate District 37, District 38: Meet candidates in Primary

18 views


What do Maryland state Senate candidates think are the top issues facing Districts 37 and 38 on the Eastern Shore?

Delmarva Now/The Daily Times sent questionnaires to each candidate seeking office in Maryland Senate Districts 37 and 38.

Included were basic biographical questions, as well as opportunities to list websites and social media accounts so voters can learn beyond just answers to the questions we asked. Responses were limited to 500 characters — the equivalent of more than two tweets. Their answers are published unedited.

The questionnaire was sent in mid-June, and follow-ups were made with those who hadn’t responded. Those who didn’t answer by June 29 are listed below as “Did not respond.”

The Primary is July 19, but early voting runs from July 7-14.

What makes you the best candidate for this office?

Hyman: With a lifetime commitment to social, economic and racial justice, I would bring a fresh vision for District 37 and focus on the important issues we care about — mitigating climate change, protecting civil rights including a woman’s right to choose, affordable and accessible healthcare, sustainable economic growth, and our public education systems and higher education institutions. I believe in democracy and would build bridges to find common ground for our common good.

State Senator Addie Eckardt at the Daily Times offices in Salisbury on Monday, Sept 24, 2018.

Local involvement in local groups and committees to understand the impact of policy implications. Member of Senate Budget and Tax Committee; sensitivity to local cultural issues and values.
