ERIC SCOTT COLVIN – Colvin will face Democrat Sheila Milburn for District One Commissioner District.


MICHAEL HEWITT – Hewitt will face Democrat Brandon Russell for District Two Commissioner

MIKE ALDERSON JR. is the GOP Candidate for District Three Commissioner; the once-vaunted Democrat Party of St. Mary’s failed to field a full slate of candidates for County Commissioner, Sheriff, Judge of the Orphans Court, States Attorney, Register of Wills, Clerk of the Circuit Court as the party becomes dominated with far-left suedo socialists and extreme radicals.

Does Tuttle live in District Four? Tax records show the address he filed with is not his principal residence.

When A Developer Buys A Board of Commissioners

Charlotte Hall developer John Parlett and several other developers have been busy in the candidate funding game in the 2022 election.

Thus far, Parlett, through more than a dozen of his development-related companies, has contributed thousands of dollars to the following candidates for election at St. Mary’s Commissioners:

Mike Alderson Jr.: $1,100

Scott Ostrow: John Parlett wrote checks in the amount of $100 from each of his business entities on June 2, 2022. Great Mills Trading Post provided a contribution in the amount of $2,000 on March 14, 2022. Commissioner Mike Hewitt’s wife Elaine provided a contribution of $200 to Ostrow on May 6, 2022. Defense contractor Dwane Macrae wrote a check to Ostrow for $600 on May 6, 2022.

Randy Guy: $1,200 through eleven various Parlett Companies according to the campaign finance reports filed in June, 2022.

Eric Colvin: The developers loaded up Colvin with big fat checks too, with Parlett sending out his largest of campaign donations, most of them for $200, from his various dozen different companies. The 2018 Democratic St. Mary’s Commissioner President candidate Howard Thompson, who lost to Randy Guy that year and is currently the Chairman of the Planning Commission and an official of the Lundeberg School of Seamanship at Piney Point, and is a frequent contributor to Republican commissioner candidates, provided a donation of $201.00 to Colvin on May 6, 2022.
