2022 Candidates – County

Sean McCurdy

Candidate for Howard County Council District 1

My name is Sean McCurdy and I am a lifelong Ellicott City resident and proud husband and father. I am an IT project engineer by profession, but my real passion stems from being a fierce community advocate and youth basketball coach. I am humbly asking for your support to be your next county councilman because I hope to apply a smarter, more coherent vision to development and redevelopment in Ellicott City and Elkridge.  I also will work harder to ensure that our county council is more responsive to the public safety and budgetary needs of our growing community.  I am committed to always maintaining open lines of communication with you--the citizens--focusing on issues that matter to us, and when progress stalls, bring people together to advance the conversation to make strong public policy where everyone is represented.

Sheila Jennifer

Candidate for Howard County Council District 2

Sheila Jennifer Is running for Howard County Council District 2 to represent and respond to you. Government should answer to the people.

Sheila’s family has been a part of Howard County, as residents of Columbia, for over 35 years. After graduating from Morgan State University, with honors, Sheila and her husband Clinton, decided to make their home in Columbia. They shared its vision for diversity. Sheila initiated Oakland Mill’s Dialogue on Diversity to support this vision.

  • Sheila’s Council run is dedicated to restoring the vision of diversity based on “content of character” rather than the criticism of one’s race or culture
  • Keeping our Constitutional freedoms when determining health choices
  • Eliminating unnecessary and excessive taxation

Sheila wants a government that answers to the people. Republicans are the proven leaders in keeping communities free from excessive regulations, mandates, taxes, and crime.

Our freedoms are inalienable and non-negotiable.

Let’s do better.

Councilman David Yungmann

Howard County Council District 5

David has represented District 5 on the Howard County Council since 2018. He is one of five council members and the sole Republican.  In addition to serving on the County Council, he is a Realtor with his team based in Ellicott City.

When elected in 2018, David brought his 35 years of financial, real estate, and management experience to the County Council. These skills have been used to promote and achieve common sense solutions to resident and business concerns, often working with Democrat colleagues to deliver results. That collaboration has been key to cutting multiple proposed budgets and stopping proposed tax and fee increases. Education has always been a top priority, so David has secured increased funding for instruction as well as critical maintenance and construction. Our residents expect safe communities and David continues to back our law enforcement agencies with both resources and his support. He has been a leading voice against socio-economic-based school redistricting, breaking up community schools, wasteful spending, and policies that reduce property values or infringe on private property rights.

David has lived in Howard County since 1972. While living in Chatham and Mount Hebron, he attended public schools and graduated from Mt. Hebron High School in 1985. He attended Loyola University where he majored in Finance. His early career spanned years in commercial banking, mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, management, and healthcare. For the past two decades, David has resided in Woodbine and worked as a real estate agent, leading his firm based in Ellicott City. He has two grown children who also attended public schools. His public service began supporting local schools, coaching sports, and getting involved in county non-profits. That community service grew, leading David to serve as a director for numerous non-profit and professional organizations, a PTACHC delegate for two schools, a community leader in several zoning/development matters, and positions in other school and community-based entities.
