As a Howard County community, we must demand the best from our elected officials.


What People SayAbout Me

“Gene and I served together on the Board of Education. During our time, I had the opportunity to work closely with Gene on a host of business and community issues. Gene is one the most savvy, intelligent business and political minds I have had the pleasure to work with. His keen sense of the pulse of the community was a remarkable asset in conducting the business of our school district. I hope to get the chance to work with Gene again in the future.”

Todd Simmens - National Managing Partner of Tax Risk Management

“Gene is a tireless, out-of-the-box thinker who constantly searches for new and better ways to help his community. Dedicating hour upon hour to as a member of the school board, Gene not only goes the extra mile, but up and over the horizon. I've always admired his energy, his passion for his work, and his commitment to doing things the right way the first time.”

Bill McCann - NYC Health Care Corporate Communications Leader
