The current BALTIMORE COUNTY DEMOCRATIC STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE (BCDSCC), known as the Baltimore County Democratic Party, was elected June 26, 2018 during the Democratic Primary Election. Elected BCDSCC members were sworn-in at a ceremony on August 4, 2018 and will serve until the Primary Election in 2022. Every voting member of the Central Committee serves as a Democratic Party official.
Baltimore County Democratic State Central Committee bylaws require that once a district level vacancy occurs, the Committee must fill that vacancy within 45 days of the creation of the vacancy. A member of the five-member Legislative District 8 team recently resigned, and that has created an immediate need to fill that vacancy with a qualified registered Democrat who resides within District 8. (District 8 presently includes the greater Parkville / Carney area and several surrounding communities.) Applicants are encouraged to apply regardless of gender, race, age, religion, orientation, or background, if there is genuine interest in working to support the platform, mission, goals, and programs of the Democratic Party, and nominated Democratic candidates.
BCDSCC is attempting to fill just one vacancy within the 8th Legislative District of Baltimore County and invites diverse candidates to apply. Each applicant must have been a registered Democrat at the time of the last Primary Election. The remaining members Legislative District 8 of BCDSCC are charged with soliciting applicants, screening and interviewing qualified candidates who return all application materials before the deadline, and making a recommendation to the full Committee of a new member who will serve as a full member of the BCDSCC for the reminder of the current four-year term, which ends in June, 2022. BCDSCC members interested in continuing as members of BCDSCC thereafter must run for office in the 2022 Primary Election.
