Letter to Editor: County Council Needs to Elect Laura Price to be Its President


The new Talbot County Council will be seated on December 3, 2018. One of their first tasks will be to choose a new President. It is Laura Price’s turn to lead the Council. She’s earned it. She has served for 8 years. She received the most votes of all 10 candidates: both Republicans and Democrats. She has the most knowledge and understanding of the budget and all financial issues before the Council. She listens to all residents, does her research, attends community events, and has fought to protect our way of life, the rural character of our Villages and farms, and supports appropriate growth and development when and where needed. Laura Price has been the Vice President twice but was passed over by the three Council Members who wanted to exclude her from having a leadership role because she is an independent thinker, does her homework, and works to represent all her constituents.

The following chart that depicts the Council Presidents and Vice Presidents since 2011, shows how unfairly she has been treated by the other Council Members.

2011 – Dirck Bartlett / Corey Pack
2012 – Corey Pack / Andy Hollis
2013 – Dirck Bartlett / Corey Pack
2014 – Corey Pack / Laura Price
2015 – Corey Pack / Laura Price
2016 – Corey Pack / Jennifer Williams
2017 – Jennifer Williams / Corey Pack
2018 – Jennifer Williams / Corey Pack

The new Council needs to listen to the majority of us who voted for Laura and elect her President of the County Council.

  1. I agree let her take the position of president it is for the best of the county, after all the people have voted for her. It is the only logical choice.
