Update: According to Mark Long Shannon Bohrer, a Democrat who lives on a farm in the Emmitsburg area, filed to run in District 5 this morning. He writes a column for the Emmitsburg Journal, “Words From Winterbilt”, and is a retired police officer. He will be at [Mark’s] Meet and Greet this evening in Emmitsburg. Woohoo!
Right now there are no Democrats are running to take over Kirby’s current seat on the county council. Deadline to file is tomorrow. Spread the word. We need a good yokel to run.
From what we hear, there are lots of folks ready to help with the campaign. Let’s get someone filed!
