The County Executive race is hotly contested. Marc Elrich, a three-term at-large County Councilmember, won the Democratic candidacy by 80 votes during the primaries out of a field of six challengers. Nancy Floreen, a life-long Democrat and four-term at-large County Councilmember, entered the race as an Independent late this summer after the primaries. Robin Ficker is the Republican nominee. Both Nancy and Marc were termed out of running for the County Council again this year due to a charter amendment for term limits, authored by Robin Ficker, that passed in 2016.
The County Executive develops policies and proposes budgets, legislation, plans and programs to the County Council. The County Executive also provides political leadership to the community and executive direction to the county government, and appoints residents to boards, commissions and committees. Each of the candidates have very different views on how the county should grow. For more, you can go to their websites at:
