Today we continue our series of Conversations with the Candidates, in the run up to Maryland’s June 26th primary elections.
Tom’s guest is Del. Pat McDonough. He is a Republican, and he has represented parts of Baltimore and Harford Counties in the Maryland Legislature for the past 15 years. He also represented District 7 as a conservative Democrat for one term, from 1979 until 1983. He has been a member of the Health and Government Operations Committee since 2003. In 2016, he ran for Congress in Maryland’s 2nd Congressional District and was defeated by incumbent Dutch Ruppersberger.
Besides his many years in Annapolis, McDonough was, until recently, host of a show on WCBM Radio. He is 74 years old. He was born in Baltimore. He attended City College and the University of Baltimore. McDonough and his family live in Middle River.
