Deb Rey, a Candidate to Watch

The Allen West Guardian Fund Situation Report of October 28 spotlights St. Mary's County's very own Deb Rey, MD Delegate candidate for District 29B. (NOTE: Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA, retired; US Congressman 2011-13). Last week the fund introduced 12 federal races to watch; this week only 11 state
and local candidates were selected for special attention - including Deb Rey.

To summarize Deb's qualifications: Deb was commissioned as an officer in the US Air Force. She was recognized as the Distinguished Graduate of her ROTC class. She earned a Master's in Management from Webster University. During her 20-year Air Force career, she served as Logistics Plan Officer and Information Manager. After retiring from the Air Force, she was elected president of the Republican Women of St Mary's Club in 2010, and president of the Republican Club of St. Mary's in 2012. She was also protocol chair and Southern regional chair for the MD Federation of Republican Women, and was a delegate to the 2012 Republican National Convention.
