County Executive Laura Neuman was appointed to the position of county executive following the resignation of County Executive Leopold. As described on the County Executive’s campaign website,

Here are some of the things we have accomplished in just a few short months:

  • Vetoed the “Rain Tax,” a poorly crafted law passed by the General Assembly that unfairly burdens Anne Arundel taxpayers
  • Worked with first responders to cut 911 response times in half without any additional cost to taxpayers
  • Implemented a 90-day strategic plan within the fire department that resulted in decreased homeowner insurance rates for 2,000 taxpaying families
  • Convinced Moody’s and S&P to revise our County’s financial outlook from negative to stable, which will save us money
  • Provided business owners and taxpayers a bigger voice in our government by creating the Commission on Excellence charged with looking at every county department to recommend best practices

All percentage results are current as of 7am Wednesday morning.  For updated information, see the State Board of Elections.
