For the past 28 years, it has been an honor and privilege to represent the people of St. Mary’s and Charles Counties in the Maryland General Assembly.

It is with a great deal of pleasure that I recommend Dan Slade for your consideration to represent District 29-A in the House of Delegates. I am supporting Dan Slade as his ethics and beliefs are much like mine.

Dan was born and raised in St. Mary’s County, graduating from St. Mary’s College and the University of Baltimore School of Law. After the completion of his education he returned to St. Mary’s County to establish his law practice in Leonardtown to serve those  in Southern Maryland. I have known Dan and his family for many years and had the pleasure of serving with his father, former District Court Judge John Slade, for 12 years in the House of Delegates.

Dan Slade is will-qualified to fill this position and I am confident that with his background and training he will make significant contributions to the deliberations of the Maryland General Assembly. I have found him to display the instincts of discretion and good judgement necessary for this position. He will represent the people of St. Mary’s County and the State of Maryland well. I am asking that you support and vote for Dan Slade when you go to the polls.


John F. Wood, Jr.

Delegate, District 29-A
