Election Profiles: Chestertown’s Second Ward

Town of Chestertown Second Ward councilman Gibson Anthony is running for reelection on November 1. Anthony has played a leading role in the town’s Rails to Trails program, the purchase of the town Marina and, more recently, has expressed concerns on the transfer of the town Armory from the State of Maryland to Washington College. He currently works as the computer/media specialist of the Radcliffe Creek School.

Medical insurance executive Linda Kuiper will be running against incumbent Gibson Anthony and activist Armond Fletcher. An active member in the Republican Party in Kent County for many years, Kuiper believes the town does not have the resources for big projects like the Marina. She also believes that the town should approve the sale.
