by DrewLUD

The race for county executive is key for Wicomico County. The primary election was held July 19, and the Wicomico County Board of Elections completed three canvasses of both mail-in and provisional ballots by Friday.

For Republicans, it pitted Julie Giordano against John Psota.

“I just received a phone call from the Acting County Executive (Psota),” Giordano posted to Facebook on Friday. “He has officially conceded the race. I really appreciate his phone call and a hard fought campaign. I hope we can work together to reach the common goal of bringing Active Local Leadership to our county.”

In that race, there were 1,451 early votes, 4,609 Election Day votes, and 5,818 mail-in and provisional votes cast. According to the Maryland State Board of Elections website, the race has yet to be certified as of Monday.

Giordano will face Democrat Ernest “Ernie” Davis and Muir Boda of the Libertarian party in the general election.

Giordano, 40, of Hebron, is a 17-year teacher.

Unopposed in the primary was Davis, a Democrat who served from 2014-2022 representing Wicomico County Council District 1 and as vice president in 2022. He is self employed in the transportation industry.
