Mike Hewitt talks re-election, the economy, and transportation

St. Mary’s County District 2 Commissioner incumbent, Mike Hewitt, recently visited TheBayNet’s offices for an interview. The Republican commissioner discussed why he’s seeking re-election, the economy, the airport, and transportation.

Mike Hewitt grew up in St. Mary’s. He owned and operated Hewitt’s Service Center for 38 years with wife Elaine before selling it in 2017. Hewitt has served on the St. Mary’s County Planning Commission, Board of Education, and the Zoning Board of Appeals among several other positions in the community.

On Hewitt’s website he outlines what he has helped accomplish in his first term as a St. Mary’s County Commissioner, he has “worked hard to keep taxes low while providing high-quality services.” He and the current board have “[broke] ground on a new Leonardtown Library, new Garvey Senior Center, new boat ramp on the Patuxent River at Clarke’s Landing, new waterfront park at Snow Hill Farm in Hollywood and finish renovations to the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum.” His website also touts “the highest rating given by the auditing firm of Murphy & Murphy.” As a result of expenses being “under projections in every category.”

Hewitt has a hardline stance against taxes and fees, opposing “all tax increases and all new fees.” He also supports “school choice and charter schools,” while being against a “one-size-fits-all CORE curriculum.”

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