Meet the candidates in primary election 2022

Delmarva Now/The Daily Times sent questionnaires to the Republicans and Democrats seeking a seat on the Wicomico County Council.

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. Responses 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 through July 14.

Below, you will find biographical information followed by Q&A responses:

Q&A

What makes you the best candidate for this office?

Cannon: My reputation for being straightforward and sincere is my trademark. I pay close attention to all concerns and deliver on my commitments. I never take my responsibilities lightly because every constituent always deserves the best service, respect and consideration. I feel my professional experience, institutional knowledge and productive working relationships with government, education, industry and community leaders at both the local and state levels create the best advantage for my constituents.
