Democratic Candidate for Anne Arundel County Executive, Joanna Conti has withdrawn from the race after campaigning for nearly six years for the position. The Conti Campaign issued a statement earlier today.
“When you start on a multi-year quest, you don’t know what obstacles life will throw in your way. Unfortunately, several challenges have come to a head in my life recently, and I need to withdraw from the County Executive race and focus on the needs of my husband and family.
It has been a pleasure and privilege to meet and work with so many terrific people during this journey. I plan to continue to be involved in efforts to improve our schools, clean up our rivers and help local nonprofits as time permits.
I am pleased that George Johnson is in the race to ensure that the needs of the county our families and public employees are well-represented.”
