District 37 candidate forum Thurs. night
EASTON — Candidates from the Maryland General Assembly from Districts 37 and 37B will be on stage at a League of Women Voters forum on Thursday, October 25, at the Senior Center on 400 Brookletts Avenue in Easton. The forum will begin at 6:30 p.m. and all five candidates will be there.
The election to both the Maryland House of Delegates and Senate is contested with a Democratic candidate running against the incumbent Republicans. The forum participants will be current Senator Adelaide Eckardt challenged by Holly Wright, and Dan O’Hare contesting incumbent Delegates Johnny Mautz and Chris Adams. In the House race, two are elected to the House of Delegates, but must be from different counties. All League of Women Forums are nonpartisan and educational in intent.
District 37 is one of Maryland’s 47 senate districts, each represented by a single seat. The district contains Dorchester County, part of Caroline County, part of Talbot County and part of Wicomico County.
There are also 47 House of Delegates districts, each represented by three delegates. While most serve at large, 37 has subdistricts 37A and 37B which divide up the three legislators.
The League of Women Voters of the Midshore plans election forums so that voters can make informed choices when they vote.
The forum will feature the House and Senate candidates in separate segments.
