Commissioner President Evan Slaughenhoupt, Jr. is currently in that posi- tion and recently announced that he was not a candidate for re-election. McConkey, who was formerly a Democrat when he previously ran for county commissioner, has switched party affiliation to Republican. He is so far the only announced Republican candidate from that district. Democrat Holly Heintz Budd has also filed from that district. McConkey is owner of Kelly’s Tree Service in Dunkirk. He did not return The County Times’ calls for comment on why he decided to run and why he switched party affiliations. The other candidates who have filed their candidacy include Republican incumbent Tom Hejl, a county commissioner at-large. The other candidates who have filed are Republican Earl “Buddy” Hance, a former Maryland agriculture secretary and Democrats Matt Bennett and Duawan Rager for at-large; Democrat Patricia Powell for District 1; and Republicans Mark Arness, a former U.S. House of Representatives candidate and Lori Barbee for the second district. dickmyers@countytimes.net "Our Own" Homemade Country Sausage Loose • Links COLD BEER WINE Stuffed Pork Chops Southern MD Stuffed Ham Jake & Amos Products * * * * * * * Berger Cookies With our Homemade Stuffing Pennsylvania Dutch Birch Beer * * * * * * * Bulk Candy & Snack Mixes Over 100 Choices!
