Twenty-six years ago, I walked through the courthouse doors for the first time as an employee of the Clerk of the Circuit Court. I had no idea at the time that I was embarking on a career of public service, but soon discovered a passion for serving the citizens of Anne Arundel County and promoting an equitable and accessible justice system.

I BELIEVE DEEPLY IN THE MISSION OF THE CLERK'S OFFICE. AS CLERK, I WILL CHAMPION THAT MISSION TO SUPPORT FAMILIES, GROW BUSINESSES AND MAKE OUR COMMUNITIES SAFER. THAT IS WHY I'M RUNNING TO SERVE AS THE NEXT CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT.

I offer the executive experience, judicial knowledge and workplace commitment needed to continue the dedication to service that has been the hallmark of our current Clerk, Bob Duckworth. I'm committed to government that connects with people, has an attitude of service, and respects the citizens it serves.

My wife and I love our county and community. We are raising our family here, we work here and live here. We're devoted to making our community better. I hope you'll join us in helping Anne Arundel County remain one of the best places in Maryland through an efficient and service-oriented Clerk's office.

Dedicated to serving you,

I believe the Clerk should help bring people together through personal service and support for our families and businesses, and as a criminal justice partner assist in bringing about justice and protecting the rights of victims and witnesses.

Support Families

Every family has a story. The Clerk's office brings families together every day through issuing marriage licenses, performing civil marriage ceremonies (I’ve married 3,600 couples) adoption services, and helping families in trouble. The Clerk's office has been part of my family's story, too: My wife and I obtained our marriage licenses there, as well as important documents when we began our journey to expand our family through adoption.

Grow Businesses

A well-run Clerk's office contributes to a strong environment for commerce and business. I will continue to provide a professional and reliable Clerk's office that will work with our governor and county executive to serve the businesses in our county. This office issues 10,000 business licenses each year. We record deeds, mortgages and liens, and our responsiveness contributes to a bustling real estate industry in our county. Through service, efficiencies and timely work, we help enable job growth and thriving businesses.

make Communities safer

As a partner to the criminal justice system, the Clerk of the Court helps carry out justice and contributes to safer communities. The Drug Court helps support success over the horrific battle many face through drug addictions. Through diligence and committed employees, we protect the rights of victims and witnesses in our community and work toward restitution. Our partnerships with agencies, law enforcement and our judges help keep us safe. It's our calling and passion.

It’s time for the baton to be turned over to the next generation. I’ve had the distinguished pleasure of working with Doug for 25 years, and any success we have in what we do is because of people in the courthouse like Doug. He has my vote.
— Bob Duckworth, Clerk of the Court for Anne Arundel County, 1994-Present

These values shape my vision and hope for our future.

Join me as we come together to build upon the quality of life that makes our county great.

Support families. Grow businesses. Make our communities safer.
