By Sarah Miller Staff Writer Commissioner Evan Slaughenhoupt, Jr., is ready to run
again. He led for his second term as Calvert County commis
-sioner with the support of his family in July.Slaughenhoupt was pleased with the progress made during
his rst term.When it comes to the budget build, Slaughenhaupt is  pleased that, this year, all discussions will be conducted in public so any community member interested in the process can remain
He is happy to see the beginnings of change to the ethics code in the county, including routine training for staff and mea
sures taken to avoid conicts of interest.Slaughenhaupt intends to continue focusing on “energizing Prince Frederick” and keeping business in Calvert instead of los
-ing money to Waldorf, Annapolis and even Washington D.C.
In addition to promoting Prince Frederick and other com
munity centers, Slaughenhaupt looks forward to the growth of a new county park in Dunkirk. He intends to work with Calvert County Public Schools on future funding for a new Northern High School. He advocates creating a plan for the anticipated inux of funds following the Dominion Cove Point liquid natural gas ex
 porting expansion. Anything done with the money shouldn’t be reactionary, he said.Slaughenhaupt is not a career politician and freely says he is not sure he will seek a third term in 2018, when both he and his wife will retire. He wants to help build a strong foundation for the county to grow on moving forward.

Democrats from all over Southern Maryland came out to the third bi-annual summit, held Oct. 25 and 26 at the Rod ‘N’ Reel Restaurant in Chesapeake Beach.Speakers included Maryland Senate
President Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr, Comp-
troller Peter Franchot, Congressman Steny
Hoyer and keynote speaker U.S. Senator and Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations
Committee Barbara A. Mikulski.Mikulski said the Republican Party was practicing a form of “shut down, slam down, knock down politics” and criticized the Republican party’s willingness to fur 
-lough government employees and risk the
credit of the country and American citizens all in hopes of hurting President Barack Obama. She likened recent Republican and Tea Party actions to the maa threatening to  burn down a business if the owner does not comply with their demands, then calling the  business owner unreasonable when he re
fuses to comply.“We all stuck together and we won,”
said Mikulski.
She advocated an increase in minimum wage, saying “a full time job should not mean full time poverty.” Legislation needs to be enacted that raises minimum wage and gives people the boost they need to suc
ceed, Mikulski said.Hoyer said many problems facing government today date back to the 2010 election.“It was the most negative, ideological and uncompromising election there has ever been,” Hoyer said.That election sowed a dislike of gov
ernment in Republicans who were elected that year, several of whom were recently reelected. Their distaste for government and public service showed in their willing
-ness to shut down government and leave it
closed, Hoyer said.Franchot said his ofce is dedicated to serving people, calling comptroller em
 ployees “tax payer employees.Like Mi
-kulski, he said people need a hand up to
make ends meet. In his ofce, Franchot and the tax payer employees work to help indi
viduals catch up on tax payments, among other functions. He related the story of an
elderly woman who was thousands of dol-
lars behind on her taxes. The comptroller’s ofce helped her arrange a payment plan
of $20 per month. The idea is to work with
 people instead of against them, Franchot
