Alfred W. Redmer Jr. (born January 15, 1956) is Maryland Insurance Commissioner and the Republican nominee for County Executive of Baltimore County, Maryland in 2018. He formerly served as a legislator in the Maryland House of Delegates, representing District 8 in Baltimore County, prior to being appointed Maryland Insurance Commissioner in 2003.


A lifelong resident of Baltimore County, Redmer graduated from Perry Hall High School, which is in Perry Hall, Maryland, a northeast area Baltimore suburb.[1] After high school he attended The American College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. The American College is a college for life insurance underwriters.


After completing his education, Redmer founded Redmer Insurance & Investment Services. He was also the Marketing and public relations specialist for the Mather Companies. He was a trustee for the Council on Economic Education in Maryland.

Republican Party activities

Redmer was a member of the Republican State Central Committee for 9th District in Baltimore County from 1978-82. He was the co-chair of Ronald Reagan's Presidential Campaign, 8th District, in 1980. He served on the campaign staff for U.S. Representative Helen D. Bentley in 1980 and again in 1982. He was elected as a delegate for the 2nd Congressional District for the 1988 Republican National Convention.

House of Delegates

Redmer was first elected to the Maryland House of Delegates in January 1990 to represent District 8 in Baltimore County, which covers the greater Parkville area. During his tenure in the House of Delegates, Redmer served as Minority Leader from 2001-03. Additionally, he was a member of several committees, including: the Environmental Matters Committee from 1991 until 2003, the Special Joint Committee on Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program from 1995-98, the Joint Legislative Task Force on Organ and Tissue Donations during 1997 and 1998, and the Joint Committee on Health Care Delivery and Financing from 1999 until 2003.

He served on the Legislative Policy Committee from 2001-03, the Spending Affordability Committee from 2001 until 2003, the Rules and Executive Nominations Committee from 2002-03, the Joint Committee on the Selection of the State Treasurer in 2002, and again in 2003, and finally the Health and Government Operations Committee.

Maryland Insurance Commissioner

In 2003, Redmer was appointed Maryland Insurance Commissioner by Governor Bob Ehrlich, resigning his seat in the House of Delegates. Redmer served in this position for two years before resigning to accept a position with Coventry Health Care, a health insurance company located in Delaware.[2]

Redmer was appointed to a second term as Maryland Insurance Commissioner by Gov. Larry Hogan (R) in January 2015.[3]

Candidacy for Baltimore County Executive

Redmer is a candidate for County Executive of Baltimore County in 2018. If elected, he would be the first Republican County Executive in the heavily-Democratic county in 24 years.[1] He was endorsed by Gov. Hogan in the Republican primary.[4] Redmer stresses his close relationship to Maryland's Republican governor, saying "If you like Larry Hogan, I'm your guy".[1] His campaign advertising calls for new schools and improved discipline in schools, while opposing low-income Section 8 housing. He is also against Baltimore County being a sanctuary jurisdiction for illegal immigrants.[5] Redmer has pledged not to raise taxes and has proposed consideration of a build-leaseback approach with private sector participation to finance the construction of replacements for three County high schools: Dulaney, Lansdowne, and Towson High School.[1]
