Interviews will be conducted Feb. 18, at 7 p.m., at the Bloomsbury Community Center, 106 Bloomsbury Avenue, Room 118, in Catonsville.

The candidate with the most votes will be named to the committee.

Central Committee members are elected volunteers of the state Democratic Party who are dedicated to working for the election of Democrats to public office while encouraging the participation of activists, volunteers and financial contributors.

Each committee member must attend at least four regular or special meetings of the county committee and at least one meeting of the Maryland State Central Committee during any 12-month period.

Central Committee members have the official responsibility to fill vacancies of certain offices due to death or resignation of elected officials and fill vacancies when no Democratic candidate has filed for nomination.

The Central Committee also makes recommendations to the governor for appointments to local election boards and at times, provides recommendations to other state and county boards.
