According to MyEasternShoreMD.com,

The committee will send Wilson’s nomination to Gov. Larry Hogan, who, under state law, must make an appointment within 15 days of receiving it.

County Commissioner Paul Comfort resigned effective May 10 to accept the post of head of the Maryland Transit Administration. Comfort was the commissioner elected from District 1. Voters elect one commissioner from each of four residency districts and one commissioner at large.

The interviewees were asked questions pertaining to their opinions of current county events. The candidates all attested to their capability of establishing and maintaining a budget and availability to serve as a county commissioner.

Jack Wilson, a business owner of 23 years, said he believes his business experiences “can help with economic decisions.”

“County commissioners should be a steward of tax-payers dollars,” he said.
