Justin Ready recently kicked off his campaign to continuing serving in the Maryland House of Delegates.
“In my short time in Annapolis, I’ve fought against the constant drumbeat of higher taxes and more spending but have seen entrenched special interests win far too often,” Ready said in a statement. “I’m running so that I can continue to stand strong for our values and fight to turn Maryland away from the destructive policies of the last several years.”
Ready, who was first elected in 2010, is running to represent the new Legislative District 5. The district encompasses a large portion of Carroll County including Westminster, Taneytown, Hampstead, Manchester, Finksburg, Union Bridge, New Windsor, and portions of Eldersburg, Sykesville, Winfield, and Taylorsville.
This newly configured district will have three at-large delegates along with one state Senator, according to Ready's website.

Fellow incumbents Del. Susan Krebs, of Eldersburg, and Del. Donald Elliott have unveiled plans to run for election again, as well.
Joshua Stonko, of Manchester, and Carroll County Commissioner Haven Shoemaker, have announced their intentions to run, as well.
Justin has lived in Carroll County since he was 11. He is a graduate of Carroll Community College and Salisbury University. For more information visit www.JustinReady.com.
