Two forums will be held at Chesapeake College Sunday, April 21, 2024, for Democratic and Republican candidates running in this year’s primary elections for the U.S. House of Representatives in Maryland’s 1st Congressional District.

The Eastern Shore chapters of the League of Women Voters, in partnership with WHCP-FM, the Spy Community Newspapers and the Star Democrat, are sponsoring the event. It is free and open to the public.

The forums will take place at Cadby Theater, Chesapeake College, 1000 College Circle, in Wye Mills. Democratic candidates will appear from 1:15 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. and Republican candidates from 3:15 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.

The following candidates, certified by the state Board of Elections, have been invited:

● Blane H. Miller III (D-Harford County)

● Blessing T. Oluwadare (D-Harford County)

● Chris Bruneau, Sr. (R-Harford County)

● Andy Harris (R-Dorchester County)

● Michael Scott Lemon (R-Caroline County)

Glenna Heckathorn, co-president of the League of Women Voters of the Mid-Shore, will moderate. Additional questions will be taken from the audience via notecards.

Voters are encouraged to attend and learn more about the candidates and their positions on issues that impact the Eastern Shore. The 1st District includes all of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, plus part of the Western Shore.

The League of Women Voters chapters hosting the forums represent Queen Anne’s County, Kent County and the Mid-Shore (Caroline, Dorchester and Talbot counties.) Coverage by Mid-Shore media partners WHCP-FM, the Star Democrat and the Spy Community Newspapers will help publicize the event.
