Central Committee Nominates Annapolis Alderwoman for Busch’s House Seat

The Anne Arundel County Democratic Central Committee on Thursday nominated Annapolis Alderwoman Shaneka Henson to succeed the late Michael Busch, who represented Anne Arundel County for 32 years in the Maryland General Assembly.

According to Maryland Matters:

Under state law, Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) will formally make the appointment based on the central committee’s recommendation. It is not yet known how quickly the appointment will be made or when Henson will take office.

Henson, who was elected to the Annapolis City Council in 2017, was one of a dozen candidates to apply to fill the vacancy. If formally appointed, she’ll serve the remaining 3 ½ years of Busch’s term. Busch, who died on April 7, had served in the House since 1987 and as speaker since 2003.
