Oxford resident, James ‘Jimmy’ Jaramillo, announces his candidacy in the 2020 election for Oxford Town Commissioner.
“Oxford has always had a special place in my heart. After moving here from Philadelphia as a child, my family and I immersed ourselves in the community. I grew up playing t-ball at the old Oxford baseball field, was a camper at Oxford Kids Camp, and worked for several local businesses including The Oxford Inn and the Oxford Bellevue Ferry,” Jimmy explains.
These experiences cultivated deep-seated relationships with many locals and the community of Oxford that continue to exist today. Kathy Radcliffe, former Oxford Town Commissioner said, “I’ve known Jimmy and his family for twenty years. He exhibits integrity and good judgment. The best interests of the community are in his heart. Be sure and vote for this outstanding young man on September 15th!”
Jimmy has extensive experience in the political arena, including aiding Delegate Johnny Mautz in his 2018 re-election campaign, as well as working with Senator Richard F. Colburn in Annapolis. Additionally, Jimmy has been a staunch voice for the residents of Oxford at town meetings, county council meetings, and testifying in front of several committees in Annapolis. Carole Abruzzese, former Oxford Town Commissioner, said “I have had the pleasure of knowing Jimmy for many years. His passion for public service is admirable and he has always been a voice for the community. Jimmy’s energy and excitement are exactly what this town needs.”
“If elected, I will focus on the issues that matter to my community. I will continue to advocate for watermen, agriculture, and small businesses in Oxford. I’ve spent the majority of my life as an Oxford resident. I have a deep understanding and passion for this small town that I have had the privilege to call home. I hope to have the honor of serving Oxford in this new role,” said Jimmy.
The election will take place on September 15th at the Oxford Town Hall.
