“Thanks to the steadfast leadership of Chair Scott Kane, the Talbot Democratic Party is in a fantastic position to make significant gains over the next two election cycles,” said incoming chair Patrick Firth. “We should always remember that the successes of today, tomorrow, and of the future are only made possible due to the strong foundation laid down before us.”
Throughout Scott’s tenure, he strengthened Talbot’s ties with the State Party by drawing attention to the needs of rural communities like ours,oversaw the development of a robust local candidate recruitment and training program, and led us to electoral victories in Talbot and throughout the Mid-Shore region.
As the torch passes, we will focus on deepening our connections within our communities, educating our constituents on the key legislative issues impacting Talbot County, and elevating the level of debate in this County. The Talbot Dems will continue to serve the people of Talbot County and to fight for the principles of equality, justice, and opportunity for all.”
