Delegate Steve Schuh Republican Candidate for Anne Arundel County Executive

Anne Arundel County Executive candidate Steve Schuh is gaining momentum with endorsements from both major local newspapers, The Baltimore Sun and The Capital.

“New development falls outside of the tax cap, and provided that Mr. Schuh can foster economic growth, his plans should work,” the Sun editors write. “And this is where Mr. Schuh’s background and good sense are important. He is a self-made man with a background in finance and as an entrepreneur – he owns a variety of successful businesses, primarily restaurants. He also has emerged during the last eight years as one of the sharpest fiscal minds from either party in Annapolis. He is not some wild-eyed Maryland version of Sam Brownback, the Kansas governor who slashed taxes so deeply that the state’s economy tanked and its credit was downgraded. Mr. Schuh can be trusted, above all, to do the math. He is not one to indulge in faith-based budgeting, and we believe him when he says he favors a gradual approach that leaves plenty of room for adjustment along the way.”

The endorsements come after a poll by Anne Arundel County Community College’s Center for the Study of Local Issues found Schuh leading by 14 points over his opponent.

“County voters want relief from taxes and burdensome regulation, and they want a county government that provides essential services efficiently and imaginatively,” the Capital editors write. “Schuh, with his background in business and his eight years of effective service in the General Assembly, is qualified to provide this. When Schuh talked to the Capital Gazette editorial board recently, the amount of planning he had already done for his administration was striking.”
