krebssusan300Name: Susan Krebs
Birthday: December 4, 1959
Eldersburg resident since: 1985
Maryland State Delegate, District 9B

Short Bio: I grew up in Catonsville and graduated from Woodlawn High School. I earned my B.S. in business administration with a concentration in accounting at Towson University in 1981. After postgraduate studies at the University of Baltimore, I worked as an accountant and financial consultant for small businesses for more than 20 years. My husband Mark and I have been actively involved in our community since moving to Eldersburg in 1985. Through volunteering with Carroll County Public Schools, the PTA and the Freedom Area Citizens Council, I was able to get fellow residents together and fight for the construction of three new schools in South Carroll County. After that, I continued to work with schools, serving four years on the Carroll County School board—the last two as President. Finally, I ran for District 9B Delegate, where I am now serving my second term. During the legislative session in Annapolis each year, I strive to improve the quality of life for Carroll County residents by opposing new taxes, creating a better environment for small businesses and alleviating the economic burden on the middle class.
