Harford Republican Central Committee Member Stephen M. Wright has filed to run for Harford County Executive in 2010. Wright will challenge incumbent and fellow Republican David R. Craig.
Wright told The Dagger that he co-founded the Rt. 40 Republican Club to help Republicans and to re-elect Craig, but he said that Craig’s Chief of Staff, Aaron Tomarchio, “attacked me every step of the way”. Wright said he “got tired of it” in the last few days.
Wright also said he believed he was censured for an unexcused absence from a meeting of the Republican Central Committee of Harford County on Tuesday when he was attending a public hearing to support legislation sponsored by another central committee member, Harford County Councilman Chad Shrodes.
Wright said he thought he would have support for his candidacy from the general public who he said was “tired of politics as usual.” He said he supported a repeal of the development impact fee in Harford County, the bill he testified to support on Tuesday night. “I think that the Harford County citizens are taxed too much”, Wright said and the current administration was “more concerned about politics than taking care of the citizens, and I’m going to try to resolve that.”
This is a developing story.
