Democratic candidates for commissioner speak to breakfast group

CHESTERTOWN — Running for Kent County commissioner comes with tall orders: more money for schools, more economic development, more doctors, more connectivity.

The trio of Democrats running this year, incumbents William Pickrum and Ron Fithian and challenger Tom Timberman, sought to answer questions on all those issues at the weekly meeting of the Kent Community Breakfast Group held on Aug. 30. The breakfast group hosted the Republican candidates — incumbent Bill Short and challengers Bob Jacob and Tom Mason — the week prior.
