The 1st District: Introducing Candidate Steve Worton

Share

It is almost too hard to believe that the 1st Congressional District of Maryland, which most political observers would say was specifically designed to be a safe and perhaps the only Republican district in the state, now has four very credible Democratic candidates eager to take on U.S. Representative Andy Harris this November.

Steve Worton is one of them. The last of the four candidates that the Spy has recently profiled, Steve comes to the race after working at the Department of Defense for 33 years. During that time, he managed over 3,000 people at 23 sites around the world maintaining operations and reducing personnel, as well as eliminated waste and improved business processes through sound management and electronic commerce.

With a degree in accounting from Temple and MBA from the University of Delaware, Steve wants to use these skills and experience in the next Congress.

The Spy met up with Steve at the Bullitt House a few weeks ago to talk about how his approach is different from his opponents in the Democratic primary in June as well as how he differentiates himself from Andy Harris in a possible Fall contest.

This video is approximately six minutes in length. For more information about Steve Worton and his campaign please go here.

    He sounds good but I wonder if he is a real candidate. His December finance report shows that of the $100,393 total only $2,851 came from unknown contributors and the rest from the candidate. Then he promised to speak in front of 200+ Democrats at the Talbot County Democratic Forum Annual meeting with the other D1 candidates and was a no show. And no word since as to why. Is he running just to dilute the votes away from the other two active Harford County candidates? That county has about 20% of the district’s voters.
