Why are you interested in running for this office?: Four years ago, I ran for Delegate to get government off people's backs and out of their wallets. Thanks to Governor Hogan's leadership, we've done just that. And although we've made considerable improvement, there's still plenty to do. We need to achieve more in the way of tax relief for our citizens, eliminate wasteful spending, reduce red-tape and reduce fees. In fact, in endorsing my candidacy, Governor Hogan said this: "Haven Shoemaker has been a crucial ally in our battle to change Maryland. I need him to stay in Annapolis to fight for lower taxes and against wasteful spending."
