McCray Leaves Election Board To Seek State Legislature Seat

Cory McCray attempted to replace the late Del. Hattie Harrison earlier this year.

Cory McCray, who occasionally blogs about labor issue on Patch, announced he’s resigning his seat on the Baltimore City Board of Elections to pursue a seat in the House of Delegates in District 45.

McCray announced his resignation from the board in a news release, and now must wait 30 days to officially begin his campaign.

"Thank you for this opportunity to serve the people of Baltimore," McCray wrote in his resignation letter to Gov. Martin O’Malley. "My family and I look forward to assisting in the creation of a prosperous future for the city of Baltimore and the state of Maryland."

Earlier this year McCray, an Overlea resident, vied to fill the seat of Del. Hattie Harrison, who died and left her seat vacant during the General Assembly session. 

But the Baltimore City Democratic State Central Committee selected Nina H. Harper, of Oliver, and O’Malley appointed her to finish the term.

In February Comptroller Peter Franchot awarded McCray a "Golden Apple" for his volunteer work with city schools. McCray also founded the B.E.S.T. Democratic Club, which is aimed at giving younger Democrats a voice in party politics and has hosted as speaker Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman.
