POLITICS 2011-12

In politics, it’s never too early to ponder the next election. In the 2012 elections, important decisions will be made: President, Congress, and closer to home, Cecil County’s first County Executive under the new Charter form of government approved by voters in November, 2010. This page will compile links to Cecil Times coverage of politics, campaign finance and redistricting that will be hot button issues for the next year and more.
