St. Mary’s County Government Mourns Loss of Elaine Kramer

Leonardtown, MD – The Commissioners of St. Mary’s County join all St. Mary’s County Government employees in mourning the untimely passing of Elaine Kramer.

Ms. Kramer served as the county’s Chief Financial Officer since August, 2000. During her tenure she initiated and/or participated in several significant budget and financial management initiatives, including the full implementation of the county’s Other Post Employment Benefits (OPEB) program.

Under her direction the county has continually focused on improving a variety of fiscal practices, including procurement, and budget development and management for both operating and capital budget funds. She was often selected by the Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) to present issues of interest at training sessions and in connection with legislative efforts.

“She was much loved. She was committed to her family, work and community,” said Dr. Rebecca Bridgett, County Administrator. “She had a standard of excellence like no other. She was honest, forth-right, and quick-witted and will be sorely missed.”

“Her passing comes as quite a shock,” said Randy Guy, Commissioner President. “With four new commissioners on board, Elaine provided a steady influence while guiding us through the budget process. We are grateful for her assistance and patience. We join with all of county government in expressing our deepest sympathy to her family and co-workers.”
