Annapolis' McMillan announces run for District 30 delegate

Herbert H. McMillan, the former Ward 5 alderman for Annapolis who made an unsuccessful run for mayor of the city last year, has announced his candidacy for the House of Delegates.

"I am running because the people of the 30th District deserve fair and balanced representation, fiscally responsible representation, and a renewed commitment to individual empowerment in their delegation," the 53-year-old Republican said yesterday.

McMillan, who is a commercial airline pilot, accused the district's delegates of being in "partisan lockstep" with the state's Democratic leadership and of not adequately representing the "moderately conservative views" of the area's voters. Besides Annapolis, the district includes the Broadneck and Annapolis Neck peninsulas and much of south county.

Del. C. Richard D'Amato, an Annapolis Democrat who represents the 30th District, filed for re-election yesterday, and David M. Gross of Arnold filed in March a notice of intent to run as a Green Party candidate, according to the state Board of Elections.
