Mentioned by Maryland State Senator Justin Ready (District 5) in his latest Ready Report:
This week, District 5 Delegate Susan Krebs announced that she will not seek re-election in the upcoming 2022 elections. Her retirement comes after 20 years of serving Carroll County in the House of Delegates. Delegate Krebs is a problem-solver who is tenacious when she identifies an issue. She also asks one of the best questions any elected official can ask when presented with a possible new law or regulation – “What’s the problem we are trying to solve?” (and do we need another law or maybe just better enforcement, coordination etc). I want to thank Delegate Krebs for her outstanding service – which will continue through the end of this year – and wish her the best in retirement.
Delegate Krebs and I discussing an issue with Delegates Shoemaker and Rose on the House floor.
This makes two currently elected officials in District 5 not running for Delegate in 2022 (Haven Shoemaker is running for Carroll County State’s Attorney in 2022).
Here is the current candidate list for Delegate in District 5 as of the morning of February 6th:
- Dennis E. Frazier
- April Rose (Current Delegate)
- Sallie B. Taylor
- Chris Tomlinson

I will continue to track new candidates entering this race here on the Blog.

Was the redrawing of districts a factor?
I wonder if the redrawing of districts will cause some others to retire?
