Two Candidates Being Considered for Wicomico County Executive

The Wicomico County Council will consider two candidates to serve as the county’s leader.

State Delegate Carl Anderton, a Republican representing Maryland’s 38B district has reapplied for consideration.

Pate Matthews, the County’s General Services Supervisor and a longtime county government employee is also seeking consideration.

The County Council selected Dr. Rene Desmarais, a local cardiologist out of three candidates for County Executive last month, although he later withdrew his name from consideration.

The Council is scheduled to hold a meeting on the County Executive vacancy on Friday. It remains unclear if they will select the next County Executive during that meeting.
