Kirby Delauter, Republican candidate for County Executive and current Frederick County Councilman, joined host Colin McGuire and News-Post political reporter Danielle E. Gaines to discuss his aspirations for higher office as well as how public office has changed him over the years.

He referenced unflattering coverage such as the 2015 #KirbyDelauter controversy in which he took to Facebook to threaten a Frederick News-Post reporter with legal action if she used his name without permission. The story gained national traction and generated mocking memes on social media.

Delauter’s top priorities for the county, he says, are building schools, moving forward with a proposed senior tax credit and supporting the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office in its 287(g) program- an agreement to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
