Talbot County Council Race: A Conversation with Maureen Scott-Taylor


Editor Note: It has come to the Spy’s attention that our plan to spread out our interviews with candidates running for the Talbot County Council may be seen as giving an unfair advantage to those whose surnames fall at the beginning of the alphabet. Given that ten candidates are running, and that early voting is still as early as October 25, we are releasing the last three remaining interviews today to mitigate that unintentional bias. 

Every election year, the Talbot Spy attempts to use the power of multimedia to introduce candidates for local office in a way that is far less traditional than the typical community forum or debate. Rather than be limited by a set amount of time to state policy views or answer questions, the Spy has used the video interview format to understand more fully a candidate’s points of view as well as their personalities. We continue this practice again this year but with a special partner in tow. The Avalon Foundation’s MCTV, with their wonderful downtown studio and video equipment, has teamed up with the Talbot Spy for a one-on-one with each one of the ten candidates running for office. While we have departed from our usual practice of editing our interviews for the sake of economy, we believe these “gavel to gavel” conversations will prove to be extremely useful as Talbot County voters go to the polls on November 6.

We continue our series with Democrat challenger Maureen Scott-Taylor. The former head of marketing at the Tidewater Inn, Talbot County Chamber of Commerce, and director of corporate communications for Easton Utilities, Maureen was elected to the Easton Town Council in 2003, and served until November 2008.  She stepped down upon her appointment by Mayor Robert C. Willey as economic development director for the Town of Easton.
