About Steve Schuh
Three years ago, I pledged to do everything I could to help Anne Arundel County achieve its full potential and to become the best place to live, work and start a business in Maryland. This goal was – and is – ambitious, and I seek re-election as your County Executive to continue the work we have started.
We have made solid progress by focusing our efforts in five areas: reducing taxes and fees, strengthening education, enhancing public safety, reforming County government and improving the overall quality of life in the County.
I am a lifelong County resident, small-business owner, husband, father of two grown children, and an involved community volunteer. I was raised in Crofton, went to school in Severna Park, worked in Annapolis, and lived in Pasadena and Gibson Island. I have started businesses in the north, east, west and central parts regions of the County. These experiences have given me insight into economic conditions over most of the County. I raised my children in Anne Arundel County and appreciate deeply the special opportunity children have in growing up here.
As a community volunteer, I have served in leadership capacities in numerous non-profit organizations here in our County, including the American Red Cross, United Way, Chesapeake Arts Center and three local schools, which have afforded me a strong understanding of the critical role the non-profit community plays in addressing the needs of our community.
Anne Arundel County is a $1.4 billion corporation, and a County Executive needs to have strong managerial and administrative skills. I have three decades of experience in finance and management and hold a master’s degree in business administration from Harvard University. During my seven-year tenure a State Delegate, I gained critical experience in the legislative process, the inner workings of government, and the delivery of excellent constituent service - skills I put to use daily as your County Executive.
