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.

It's a pretty good job with taxpayer funded pay, good benefits without the need to produce any results or accomplishments for the county.

I agree David...pretty sure that's the reason that Shoemaker has chosen this effort as his next hop on political stepping stone...he has demonstrated no results perceived leadership as both the Mayor of Hampstead and Carroll Commissioner....unless of course you consider promoting the use of EMINENT DOMAIN an accomplishment.

As Ben Franklin said about elections, "we get who we deserve." And that couldn't be truer in Carroll County. For as long as voters return to office, like rote, those in the delegation (as well as in all local offices) with the "R" brand, nothing will change but the number of terms they serve. And yet, paradoxically, members of the delegation continue whining like kids who didn't get the gifts they wanted for Christmas over the one-party's domination in Annapolis-the height of hypocrisy.
