Howell Will Not Seek Re-Election as Republican Central Committee Chairman; Focus is on State Senate Campaign

From Friends of Derek J. Howell:

Derek J. Howell, chairman of the Republican Central Committee of Harford County, announced Monday that he was not going to seek re-election as chairman of the Republican Central Committee. The bylaws of the Republican Central Committee call for an annual election of the chairman and other officers at its November meeting. Having served as chairman and former vice-chairman, Derek said “I am grateful for the time I was able to serve as chairman, but I will not be seeking re-election as chairman because I want to concentrate on my campaign for the Maryland State Senate.” Derek went onto say “The campaign is going very well. I have met a lot of voters; we are raising money and having a good time. In fact we had a full house and a really good time at my fundraiser this past Saturday evening.”

Derek would also like to thank all of the veterans who served our country. These brave men and women fought and shed their precious blood to protect our liberty, freedom and Constitution. Let us recognize them and their heroic service on Veteran’s Day, but let us be grateful and thankful for their dedication and sacrifice everyday.

Derek is running for the Maryland State Senate (District 34). This seat is currently held by Senator Nancy Jacobs, but she is retiring from the Maryland State Senate in 2014. For more information about Derek and his campaign, please visit

    The worst Rep Central Comm ever. He never raised any money for the Party and I doubt he can for a State Senate race,,my money is on Bob Cassilly to hold the Senate seat.
