Marks and Crandell Projected as Council Winners

Eastcountytimes.com has projected a primary win for both Republican County Councilman David Marks (5th) and Todd Crandell (7th). GOP County Council candidate Tony Campbell was unopposed in the 6th District.

Marks defeated Phillip DePalo with nearly 82 percent of the vote and Crandell has defeated Donna Eve Sekora with nearly 72 percent of the vote.

Marks will face Democrat Crystal Francis who has nearly 70 percent of vote over Nick Johnson.

Marks released a statement after the win.

“Thank you to the Republican voters in the Fifth District for once again entrusting me as their nominee for the Baltimore County Council. I just received a concession statement from Phil DePalo. I very much appreciate his interest in public service and thank him for offering his perspective as a business owner on the Eastside.
Thank you also to our campaign workers who worked so hard on my behalf,” Marks said.

“We are on a trajectory to receive more votes than both Democratic candidates combined. There will be a very clear choice this November as we continue to advance the type of bipartisanship, results, and independence so sorely needed in government today.”

Crandell will face Justin Holliday, who was unopposed in his Democratic race.

The interesting race is in District 6. Mike Ertel is leading Shafiyq Hinton 40.82 to 38.6 percent in the Democratic race. The winner will face Campbell in November.
