Surely we must all recognize the search for truth as an imperative duty; and we ought all of us likewise to recognize that this search for truth should be carried on, not only fearlessly, but also with reverence, with humility of spirit, and with full recognition of our own limitations both of the mind and of the soul.

think many of my fellow citizens know, I have happily poured my heart and soul
into this job, serving Queen Anne's County to the best of my abilities. But
after much thought, I believe I can better serve the places I love, Queen
Anne's County and Maryland's Eastern Shore, as a private citizen." Dunmyer
said. "In 2010, I proudly ran on a platform of improving the county's
finances and sustaining our rural quality of life, and there is no question
that, with the help of the citizens, progress has been made on both of these
fronts during my time on the Board, and I step away without regret,"
never wanted to turn politics into a career, and never thought that running for
reelection was at all inevitable. I have met some great people interested in
running across the county, and they deserve a chance to see what they can
accomplish," Dunmyer said. "I am not sure exactly what the future
holds for me personally, but I am excited about taking a more prominent role in
issues related to conservation and smart growth, and perhaps serving the county
in other roles," said Dunmyer.
enjoyed serving the county as a commissioner, and am incredibly grateful to the
voters who gave me that opportunity. I look forward to staying engaged in the
issues facing our county, and supporting great candidates in 2014."
