Gina Kazimir of Bel Air formally filed her candidacy for Harford County Council District C on February 7th. Gina, who lives in the Howard Park section of Bel Air, is offering a choice to move forward for voters in District C.
“I am running because I believe that voters deserve choices. The right to choose our government is fundamental to what makes America the greatest nation on earth,” she says. “I want to ensure that right remains strong by offering a choice for voters in District C.
I believe that we need to move forward and take a fresh look at the opportunities and challenges in the district. The status quo isn’t acceptable anymore. District C is in the heart of Harford County. Our district offers some of the best opportunities in the county for education, shopping and recreation, but along with those opportunities come concerns, like increasing traffic and development density. Our County Council needs to manage both opportunities and costs as we move forward, costs not just in terms of dollars but in terms of the impact on our environment and our quality of life.”
A Harford County resident for two decades, Gina has run a successful strategic communications firm, PR Right Now, for 16 years. She has worked with a range of clients from national companies and trade associations to non-profits and small business, winning a number of awards for her work along the way. For seven years she served as the editor for “Harford Magazine,” helping to create the “Best of Harford” awards. Gina has served as a board member with Harford Habitat for Humanity and Open Doors locally, is a longtime member of the Bel Air Downtown Alliance, served at the request of the Council President on the Horse Park Task Force and volunteers teaching life skills classes at Anna’s House. She is also one of the founders of “Dancing for a Cause,” the annual benefit for Cancer LifeNet at Upper Chesapeake Health. In addition, she received her certificate in civil mediation from MICPEL, the continuing education arm of the Maryland Bar Association, giving her proven skills in helping to create consensus even in challenging situations.
“I love Harford County and the people who live here,” Gina says. “My friends and neighbors are some of the best people I've ever met, and I would be honored to be able to represent everyone in District C in the County Council.”
