Delegate Brooke Lierman is the Democratic nominee for Comptroller in the 2022 general election on November 8. Lierman will face term-limited Harford County Executive Barry Glassman, who ran unopposed in the Republican primary for Comptroller.
Brooke Lierman beat out Bowie Mayor Tim Adams in the closely watched primary. According to unofficial early voting and election day results, Lierman captured 64 percent of the vote, while Adams received 36 percent.
Lierman is a disability and civil rights attorney and has recently spent two terms as a Delegate representing District 46 in the Maryland General Assembly.
Glassman was elected to represent District D on the Harford County Council in 1990. He won a seat in the Maryland House of Delegates before being elected to the Maryland Senate in 2010. Glassman has recently spent two terms as Harford County Executive after being elected in 2014.

Please note that vote counts are incomplete. Election officials still have to count mail-in and provisional ballots. For context, more than 500,000 Marylanders requested a mail-in ballot for this year’s primary, and those remaining votes are likely to be material to many contested races. However, local boards of elections cannot begin to canvass mail-in votes until Thursday, July 21. Therefore, for editorial purposes, MACo coverage will describe any races where the top runner-up remains within 10 percent of the apparent winner(s) as “pending” and those results as “apparent.”
MACo’s election coverage and analysis rely on unofficial results published by the State Board of Elections. Official results will follow after a full accounting of pending votes. Given delays in processing an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots, MACo advises readers that any close unofficial results are subject to realignment in the days ahead.
