Incumbent President Tricia Johnson of Davidsonville is seeking a second five-year term in the at-large seat, and Teresa Birge of Seven Oaks, who intends to represent the newly created District 32 seat in West County, must go up for a retention vote in November, which means there will be no other names on the ballot.

The Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities is seeking volunteers for a focus group to help the agency form a marketing strategy to promote its services. Part of the problem, officials say, is that some people aren't aware of specific county services. "That has been a concern of our department," said Jeffrey Balentine, assistant director of the Department of Aging and Disabilities. "We'll hear about people saying they haven't heard of our services, so we'll try to market our department and make sure they know what we offer."
