Have the county’s land use policies adequately balanced growth and the preservation of existing communities and agricultural land?
How do you rate the county’s efforts to fight opioid addiction overdoses? What else, if anything, should the county be doing to combat the epidemic?

How would you characterize the relationship between the Harford County Sheriff’s Office and the communities it serves? Are any reforms necessary?
Woods: I think the relationship is very good and that the Sheriff’s office does an outstanding job in our communities. I believe there should be a greater appreciation and acknowledgement for the sacrifices, bravery and dedication of our law enforcement officers.
The Glassman administration is trying to lead Harford County’s formerly all-volunteer fire and emergency medical services to more a professional organization with more paid personnel.
