Noel Smith, a local small businessman who operates a martial arts school in Glen Burnie’s Town Center, has announced his candidacy for Anne Arundel County Council District 2, which covers Glen Burnie, Millersville, and Severn.
“As a small businessman, it breaks my heart to see what our county government leadership has done to our communities,” said Smith. “Out-of-touch leaders like Steuart Pittman and Allison Pickard have raised taxes, shut down businesses, and turned their back on our neighborhoods. I am running to bring real leadership to the County Council.”
As a councilman, Smith has pledged to:
- Roll back the Pickard/Pittman tax increases
- Fight for a police substation for Glen Burnie and Millersville to keep the area safer
- Renovate or Replace Glen Burnie High School
- Propose a homelessness resource program targeting the Glen Burnie Town Center to address the homeless problem.
“We have seen what happens when out-of-touch, extreme politicians use county government to benefit liberal special interests: higher taxes, higher crime, and failing schools,” said Smith. “Residents in District Two need someone who fights for them.”
Smith and supporters will host a formal kick-off event this evening August 20th at the American Legion Post 40, 500 5th Ave SE, in Glen Burnie. The primary election for the County election is June 28, 2022.
