Carol Proctor throws hat in the ring for Ocean City Council election
OCEAN CITY, Md. – A political newcomer is throwing her hat in the ring to be elected to Ocean City Council. Carol Proctor has worked in real estate and banking for the last 25 years. But, she says she’s ready to tackle the challenges and needs of Ocean City.
“Over the last couple of years, what I’ve seen in the political arena is that politicians have lost sight that they are voted in by the people, and for the people. In everything that I do, I love to help people. I look at this as a volunteer service,” said Proctor. “I don’t agree with what’s happening. Not necessarily in Ocean City, but from a very global perspective. They say one thing, and do another.”
Proctor tells 47 ABC while she’s not a career politician by any means, she wants to serve all the people of Ocean City. Adding, one of the biggest issues she’s interested in digging into is controlling density and growth in the town. Proctor says that can have major impacts on things like parking and housing.
Voters should choose Proctor, she says, because she’ll choose to fight for them. “I think we need to look at how things are going to impact the people, and how they’re going to impact the city,” she said. “I see things from a global perspective, and I see some of the changes that we’re making, and we have to be sure that we’re making them in a logical way.”
Proctor is going up against incumbent council members Matt James and Mark Paddack, and candidate Will Savage. Ocean City’s municipal election will be held November 8th from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
