2006 Maryland county executive elections

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The election to choose county executives in Maryland occurred on Tuesday, November 7, 2006. The U.S. House election, 2006, U.S. Senate election, 2006, Maryland gubernatorial election, 2006, and Maryland General Assembly Election, 2006 took place on the same day. Seven charter counties elected a county executive: Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, Harford County, Howard County, Montgomery County, Prince George's County, and Wicomico County. This race coincided with the election for Maryland County Offices Election, 2006.

Anne Arundel County

The 2006 race was highly competitive, with the county continuing as a new partisan battleground.

The Democratic primary to replace outgoing County Exec. Janet S. Owens was won by 12-year County Sheriff George F. Johnson, IV, who defeated County Recreation & Parks Director Dennis Callahan. Johnson garnered the vast majority of the Democratic Party endorsements, including the Police Department and Fire Department Unions.[1] On March 1, 2006, potential Democratic candidate Barbara Samorajczyk announced that she was joining Johnson's campaign for County Executive as his environmental advisor.

Delegate John Leopold won the Republican nomination with 36% of the vote, defeating Phil Bissett, Delegate David Boschert, Tom Angelis, and Gregory V. Nourse.
