Local businessman Noel Smith announced his candidacy for County Council, District 2
Noel Smith, a small local businessman who runs a martial arts school in downtown Glen Burnie, has announced his candidacy for District 2 of the Anne Arundel County Council, which covers Glen Burnie, Millersville and Severn.
âAs a small businessman, it breaks my heart to see what our county government leaders have done for our communities,â Smith said. âDisconnected leaders like Steuart Pittman and Allison Pickard have raised taxes, closed businesses and turned their backs on our neighborhoods. I am presenting myself to bring real leadership to the county council. “
As a city councilor, Smith pledged to:
- Cancel Pickard / Pittman tax increases
- Fight for a police station for Glen Burnie and Millersville to keep the area safer
- Renovate or replace Glen Burnie High School
- Propose a homeless resource program targeting downtown Glen Burnie to address the homelessness issue.
âWe’ve seen what happens when disconnected extremist politicians use county government for the benefit of liberal special interests: higher taxes, higher crime and failing schools,â Smith said. âThe people of District 2 need someone to fight for them.
Smith and his supporters will be hosting an official launch event tonight August 20 at the American Legion Post 40, 500 5th Ave SE, in Glen Burnie. The primary election for the county election is June 28, 2022.
