North East Mayor To Run For Cecil County Executive

NORTH EAST, Md. (AP) — Cecil County will change from commissioner to a charter form of government next year, and one official already has plans to run for the new post of county executive.

North East Mayor Robert McKnight tells the Cecil Whig that he will file his candidacy over the summer.

McKnight, a Democrat who has been mayor since 1993, has launched a listening tour of the county to find out what residents want from government.

Charter government will take effect in Cecil County on Dec. 6, 2012, when the new county executive and two new council members are sworn in. The three remaining county commissioners will become council members.
