Meet The Candidates: State Senate, District 30


Roughly two months remain before the primary election, with early voting starting on July 7 and Election Day arriving on July 19. Who are the candidates on this year’s ballot? The Voice asked each of them to submit a short bio to share their respective backgrounds and priorities.

Here are candidates for  the Maryland Senate in District 30.

Sarah Elfreth

Elected in 2018 to represent Annapolis and southern Anne Arundel County, Senator Sarah Elfreth is the youngest woman ever elected to the Maryland Senate.

A Democrat, she serves on the Budget and Taxation Committee, as chair of the Anne Arundel County Senate delegation, and as one of two senators representing Maryland on the multi-state Chesapeake Bay Commission.

Stacie MacDonald

Stacie MacDonald is an animal lover and owner of a Maryland assisted living business, which accepts elderly residents and allows them to bring their pets to live with them.

She has over 30 years of professional experience as a Maryland business owner, legislative counsel, attorney, litigator and real estate broker. Her experience includes drafting and navigating passage of bipartisan laws within the legislature. She is living Governor Larry Hogan’s vision, “Maryland is open for business.” She achieved this by purchasing a failing business and growing its revenue to create over 100 new jobs.

Her extensive community involvement includes leading the successful movement to keep Anne Arundel restaurants open for dining in December 2020.

There is too much special interest money in politics and too many political favors. Therefore, she refuses all contributions from PACs, lobbyists and “special interest” groups!

Her approach is much like Governor Hogan’s: fair, thoughtful and pragmatic. She takes a commonsense, bipartisan and balanced approach to policies, and she is not going to vote merely because of a political party. Serving is not about a certain political party. Her decisions will be based on what is best for the people she serves.

We need legislators who understand the impact crime is having in our communities, the burden of constant tax increases, the educational challenges facing our students and the far-left policies that compound the cost-of-living challenges facing the people of District 30.

MacDonald is running for state senate in District 30 and pledges her full-time, year-round efforts to being a senator. The Annapolis area has been her home for 11 years because she loves the semi-rural lifestyle, boating and friendly people. MacDonald and her husband share their home with their 150-pound Boerboel, Vino, who is trained to comfort elderly dementia residents.
