She is especially focused on education and adequately funding teachers, as well as other county employees.
McMahan, meanwhile, said he has "advocated strongly" for teachers and other government employees, noting he was has been endorsed by the Harford County Sheriff's Office.
"There is no way the council could have provided raises if the administration did not send them over," he said.
McMahan said he would continue supporting employees in the future but also said he wants to see a leaner county government.
"The next county executive is going to have to make some extremely difficult choices on programs and people," McMahan said from his office Monday. "I am here to support the reorganization, and the reorganization has to take place."
Besides government reorganization, McMahan said he supports limiting development, especially in the Route 924 area.
"I am opposed to over-development of Plumtree Road and Route 924," he said, declining to elaborate.
The intersection drew a community outcry when Walmart proposed a store there, most notably. Apartments have also been proposed for the area and a MedStar health facility is being built.
If re-elected, McMahan said he would keep advocating for employees and would support the administration "if a resolution is requested."
"I want to see whatever can be done to raise employee morale," he said, but added the council "has got to be able to look at whatever the administration sends over because, believe me, they are going to have to make some tough decisions."
Kazimir also said the county needs to work on traffic safety and reconsider how it is adding development to the development envelope, the county's designated development area.
Regarding the Walmart site proposed off Route 924, Kazimir said she wants to see more steps in the zoning process to require more exceptions for projects like a big-box store in an area like Plumtree and 924.
"One of the things I would really like to see is a review of the zoning requirements," she said. "I think we need a considerably greater number of special exceptions."
Kazimir said she was excited to see Harford County Public Schools offer more chances for the public to comment on the education budget, calling it "a fantastic first step in the process."
She also said she wants to see a quarterly meeting with all stakeholders at the Board of Education.
Kazimir said, unlike McMahan, "I don't believe in 'top-down' [approaches], either for raises or for governance."
