Why I'm Running
Hello, my name is Jessica Haire - it's nice to meet you! I am an engineer, attorney, wife, and mom. I was elected to my first term on the Anne Arundel Council in 2018 and have worked hard to pass legislation that lowers tax burdens, eliminates unfounded regulations, and improves the quality of life for residents during that time. I am running for County Executive in 2022 to bring common sense, innovation, and efficiency to our our county government.
My husband Dirk and I live in Edgewater and together we are raising four children. Our family loves to spend time in our local parks, go for hikes, and work in our backyard garden together. We have a Boxer named Casey and a Pekingnese named Nalla. I look forward to seeing you soon!
