Scott MacMullan, a native of Annapolis and a successful small business owner, is running for County Council in District 6, a district that will be open as current councilman Chris Trumbauer will be term-limited out.

The campaign’s kickoff event is being held on Wednesday, May 17th from 6pm – 7:30pm at the Pip Moyer Recreation Center.

“I operate and manage a law firm and run a podcast, but I can be described as a community activist,” MacMullen says. McMullen graduated from Villanova University and earned his Juris Doctorate from the Widener University Commonwealth Law School, with a concentration in Environmental Law. “As an Annapolis native who does a lot of volunteer work in the community, I decided to run for office to make a difference on the County Council.”

MacMullen says he will passionately advocate for the environment. He is also a strong proponent for public education. “We must fully support our teachers and their support staff. I believe in giving every Annapolitan a fair chance and lifting up people to the spotlight who deserve a chance. I would take a commonsense approach to representing Annapolis on the County Council. I have a lot of respect for what Chris Trumbauer has done in office and I hope to build on the progress he’s made for the past 7 years as a strong and effective advocate for the residents of District 6.” MacMullan plans to focus on Environment and Education in office in his roll as a Councilman.

Scott MacMullan grew up sailing, swimming and fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. These early experiences led to a lifetime of passion and advocacy for the environment. Most recently Scott has been an active board member for the Anne Arundel County Scenic Rivers Land Trust.

Scott MacMullan’s mother was a longtime administrative assistant at Eastport Elementary School. She not only taught him the importance of a teacher’s role in our school system, he says, she taught him the vital importance of the people who support the teachers in our schools.

As a member of the “Great Give” the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, Mr. MacMullan was a part of a committee that raised over $900,000 for Anne Arundel County nonprofits. Moreover, as a member of the Annapolis Human Relations Commission, Scott serves for the purpose to end discrimination and to give everyone a fair and equal opportunity in Annapolis. He is proud to currently serve as a board member of the Wiley H. Bates Legacy Center.
