Maryland Green Party may field county exec candidate

Liam Farrell at the Annapolis Capital Gazette reports:

Seeking to capitalize on an anti-incumbent mood and the general appeal of environmental policies, the Green Party is likely to have its first nominee for county executive this year.

“I refuse to be marginalized. I demand our issues be discussed,” he said. “I can guarantee that I’ll be a change maker.”

The party is meeting tomorrow in Annapolis to consider nominating Mike Shay, a south county environmental activist, for Anne Arundel’s top political post.

Shay, 59, said his candidacy is an effort to give voters “real choices” and make sure there is a dialogue on creating sustainable communities and protecting the environment. In 2006, he ran as a Democrat for delegate in District 33B, losing to Del. Bob Costa, R-Deale.

  1. I know Mike Shay and this has the potential to be a very significant race for the Green Party. Anne Arundel County is on the Chesapeake Bay and the environment is a high priority for voters.

    Mike is an established businessman who knows how to get things done.
