Candidates Sought for Wicomico County Executive

The County Charter states that when a vacancy in the Office of County Executive occurs after the first 12 months of a term, the vacancy shall be permanently filled by resolution with a majority vote of the members of the County Council, within 45 days after the vacancy occurs. Each of the nominees must be of the same political affiliation as his or her predecessor at the time of the executive’s most recent election and shall possess the same qualifications for office as provided in Charter Section 405, which are as follows:

  • Be a resident and qualified voter of the county for at least five years immediately preceding the appointment.
  • Must be 25 years of age at the time of appointment
  • May not hold any other office of profit in federal, state, county or municipal government during the term in office
  • The County Executive is not eligible for appointment to any compensated county office or position, except as a County Council member, for one year after the termination of the term in office.

As Mr. Bob Culver was a registered Republican, the Wicomico County Council is seeking registered Republicans with the above qualifications who are interested in being nominated for appointment as County Executive for the remainder of the current term. The new County Executive shall receive compensation of $85,000 annually.

 Candidates are requested to submit a resume with a biography, and a completed job application to the Wicomico County Council Administrator at P.O. Box 870, Salisbury, MD  21803. All applications must be postmarked by August 11th.  Please contact the Council Administrator Laura Hurley at 410-548-4696, or for additional information about applying.
