District 1 Seat on the Board of Education


In 2017, the Maryland General Assembly passed a law that required the Anne Arundel County Board of Education to include, among other things, 7 elected members, one for each Councilmanic district in the County. See 2017 Maryland Laws Ch. 473 (H.B. 716).

Members representing Districts 1, 4, 5, and 7 were elected to the County Board of Education during the general election held on November 6, 2018, for six-year terms that began on December 3, 2018. Members representing Districts 2, 3, and 6 were elected during the general election held on November 3, 2020, for four-year terms that began on December 7, 2020. A member from each district will be elected at the general election in 2024 for four-year terms that will begin on December 2, 2024.

Under State law, the County Council “shall select a qualified individual to fill any vacancy in the office of an elected member of the county board for the remainder of the term and until a successor is elected and qualifies”.
