Katherine Jones Running For Wicomico County Council At Large
Wicomico County, MD – With Maryland’s primary elections right around the corner and early voting already underway, 47ABC spoke with some of the candidates throwing their hat in the ring for Wicomico County Council at Large.
Katherine Jones is an executive director at Bay area Center for Independent Living, a nonprofit that supports the disabled and their families.
She tells 47ABC she’s already served on multiple different committees and councils for the city of Salisbury and Wicomico county for the last two years, and because of that she believes running for an elected position was the step she needed to take.
One of her biggest concerns for the area is improving water and sewage infrastructure.
She said, “It’s a pressing issue, it’s about the health of our community, it’s about real estate properties in our community. We want to make Wicomico county the choice for businesses and for families to come and reside and that’s hard to do when you have such a pressing issue at hand.”
Jones is currently serving on a sub-committee with experts on water and sewage. along with community leaders to speed up the process to resolve these lingering problems.
