Candidate Education on the Eastern Shore

The next four years will be pivotal in cleaning up local rivers, creeks and the Bay. How can Eastern Shore counties do their part? CBF is pleased to co-sponsor a new publication called 5 Actions Your Next Local Elected Officials Should take for Clean Water. It's a short, easy-to-read summary of proven, cost-effective measures that candidates for local office should be aware of this election year.

5 ThingsChallenges like polluted runoff, excess fertilizer, and growth management create local problems that need local solutions. Meanwhile on Maryland's Eastern Shore, nearly every seat on county councils and commissions is up for grabs in the general election. Where do candidates who might be our next decision makers stand on the issues that matter most to you? This pocket-sized checklist can help focus conversation around meaningful ways to make our local waterways and the Bay clean and healthy.

Download your copy, and share with your friends, family, and co-workers. Now more than ever, local leaders need to be prepared to deliver clean water solutions. As the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint continues to guide progress, our communities and those elected to represent us must be familiar with strategies that work to finish the job of restoring the Bay. Our children and grandchildren will benefit from good decisions made by county and municipal officials. 

5 Actions Your Next Local Elected Officials Should take for Clean Water is co-sponsored by local and regional conservation groups active on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Join us in working together to educate elected community leaders about things that can be done for clean water when they are in office. 

Eastern Shore Candidates Forums

Plan to attend these forums sponsored by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to hear where candidates running for seats in Queen Anne's and Talbot Counties stand on the environmental issues that matter most to you. Ask candidates a question and contribute to the community conversation about local leadership needed to restore the health of our air, land and water on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Both events are free and open to the public.
