Democratic candidate in MD hoping to bring more political representation to the Eastern Shore

MARYLAND – With Delegate Johhny Mautz vacating his seat in the house of delegates, a local family-nurse practitioner is throwing her hat in the ring.

Susan Delean-Botkin isn’t just a nurse, she’s also the President of the Board of Education in Talbot County and helped pass legislation on issues such as health care, the environment, and education.

Botkin says she considers herself a more conservative Democrat and has major focuses on healthcare, education, better pay for first-responders, rural areas, and the environment.

Botkin also tells us she admires Delegate Sheree Sample-Hughes’s work and hopes she can work closely with her to have better representation in Annapolis, and as a Democrat on the Eastern Shore. “By speaking up for the shore and understanding how legislation goes through having worked with a lot of these folks over the years for healthcare and education, I know them and I think I can bring that to them and make it easier for the shore to get their fair share,” says Botkin. She adds, “I’ve had the experience, I’ve had the interaction, I have the ability to work across the aisle and that’s going to make a difference.”

Botkin also tells us if elected she hopes to help develop a way to deep dive into the needs of constituents in her area to best understand what they need.
