Clarke Guy runs unaffiliated in St. Mary's District 3

 

Lexington Park, MD - Clarke Guy is running unaffiliated for St. Mary’s County’s District 3 Commissioner as a self-proclaimed centrist. His mantra for his candidacy and his life is outlined on his web site as “Love One Another.” Guy attributes the origin of these words to live by as being his personal experience in his 21-plus years in the Air Force and the presence of Catholicism in his life.

Guy was born and raised in St. Mary’s County, graduating from Chopticon High School in 1993. He went on to study as a paralegal and work for “prominent attorneys” before joining the Air Force in 1994. Guy returned in 2004 to raise his kids with his wife, Claudia. After a couple of years in Illinois, Guy, in St. Mary’s again, began volunteering and became a member of the Mechanicsville Lions Club and president (King Lion) for the 2017-19 office years.

In a recent interview with TheBayNet.com, he elaborated on some of the issues facing the county at the moment.

Guy sees the issues with the 911 system as a problem that “needs to be fixed.” He emphasized that “we are talking about people’s lives here” and wants to see it working no matter the cost. Guy also stressed the importance of providing increased incentives to our first responders, as the county has begun to experience a dip in volunteers.

The District 3 candidate went on to say that he supports the development at and around the airport and the economic plan. He feels that the third building “could have been done a whole lot better,” stating that “we could have had it by now.” Guy also sees potential in “public/private” partnership, giving examples of a community center, animal shelter, and as a way to help transportation in St. Mary’s County. He sees these partnerships as a means to promote small businesses that “not only helps the base but also promotes economic diversity.”

Guy sees communication between the state delegation and county commissioners as a critical area that needs to be improved, with issues in the development of the higher education center’s third building and oyster column leasing being two areas communication is not happening. He also believes that the county needs to become more self-reliant when it comes to projects like finishing FDR Boulevard.

Election day for the 2018 Gubernatorial election is November 6, 2018. Please check the Maryland voter service web site here to find your polling location.
