Geary Withdraws, Endorses Bailey

MECHANICSVILLE, MD – Dr. Daniel Geary, a Leonardtown resident, withdrew from the District 29 Senate race Thursday. Instead, he has chosen to endorse Jack Bailey, a retired Maryland Natural Resources Police Sergeant and long-time St. Mary’s County resident.

“After talking with Jack, I came to the conclusion that we both wanted the same things,” Geary said. “St. Mary’s and Calvert counties need a senator who will work with Governor Hogan. Jack Bailey is that candidate and that’s why he has my vote and my support.”

“I am extremely grateful to receive Dr. Geary’s endorsement,” Bailey stated. “I truly look forward to working with him to give the citizens of St. Mary’s and Calvert a real voice in the senate.”

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
