Delegate Steve Schuh today announced endorsements by former delegates Elizabeth Smith Anderson and Terry Gilleland.
“Steve Schuh grew up in Crofton and knows the issues that are important to West County: balancing growth and economic development while maintaining strong communities. He also values our farms and understands the importance of keeping South County rural,” said Smith Anderson, a delegate from District 33 who served from 1974 to 1994. “Steve Schuh knows what it takes to improve our County. I strongly support him to be our next County Executive.”
Smith Anderson was one of the first two women elected to the Maryland House of Delegates from Anne Arundel County. She is a longtime member and former president of the Greater Annapolis Chamber of Commerce and a former part owner of several radio stations, including WNAV in Annapolis.
Terry Gilleland served District 32 from 2003 to 2007 and is a former student member of the County’s Board of Education. He is a former chairman of the Republican Central Committee and is currently a director at Laureate Education.
“I have seen firsthand the commitment Steve Schuh has to serving Anne Arundel County and taking a leadership role on fiscal issues in the Maryland General Assembly,” Gilleland said. “I support Steve Schuh for County Executive because he can get our fiscal house in order and grow our local economy.”
Schuh has received more than 100 endorsements from leaders in the Republican Party, including former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., Congressman Andy Harris, Councilman Ron Dillon and House Minority Leader Nic Kipke. Now in his second term as a delegate, Schuh serves as Chairman of the County Delegation and is a member of the Economic Matters Committee in the Maryland General Assembly. He is also proud to be a father and small business owner in Anne Arundel County.
“Betty Smith Anderson and Terry Gilleland served the people of Anne Arundel County effectively and I am honored to have their support,” Schuh said.
