The candidates for the Bel Air Board of Town Commissioners are listed below in alphabetical order. Harford County Climate Action (HCCA) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the climate crisis through local action. We can’t endorse any candidates, but we can encourage you to vote and help to get you information about the candidates! The election will be held on Tuesday, November 5, from 7:00 a.m.- 8:00 p.m. at Bel Air Town Hall, 39 N. Hickory Avenue, Bel Air, MD. There are three pending vacancies on the Board. Turn out is typically embarrassingly low. Our government is a representative democracy only if we participate, so please vote!
We are sharing background information about each candidate and why they are running for office. This information was copied from the Aegis. We also asked each candidate if they would answer two questions:
- Do you feel that the town of Bel Air has a responsibility to reduce its carbon emissions in order to help to slow climate disruption? If “yes”, what steps do you think should be taken?
- The city of Havre de Grace, i.e. all government divisions such as City Hall, Police, Water Treatment, etc., sources 100% of its electricity from solar energy is produced in Maryland (not in Havre de Grace). The city has saved money by doing this. Would you support sourcing 100% of Bel Air government’s energy needs from clean sources, also? (Clean sources=solar, wind, and geothermal.)
