Kontra seeks sheriff’s office in Calvert

Hollywood, MD - Veteran law enforcement officer Craig Kontra is again seeking the sheriff’s post in Calvert County. The Pennsylvania native is making his second attempt to unseat incumbent Mike Evans. Kontra, who resides in Huntingtown with his wife, Connie, and their son, has served in several divisions during his 30-plus years with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office. Kontra, who is a sergeant, was the supervisor for the Warrants Division for almost 20 years. Three times during his stint with the local sheriff’s office, Kontra has been named Deputy of the Year.

In the 2014 General Election Kontra lost to Evans by slightly more than 600 votes. This year, Kontra and another candidate—Kinsey Weems—are facing Evans in the Republican Primary in June.

Recently, Kontra spoke with about his candidacy and vision for the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office.
