Midday Candidates' Week: Craig

DavidCraig.jpg

Harford County Executive David Craig has been a Havre de Grace city councilman, its mayor, a member of the Maryland House of Delegates, and a state senator. And he’s one of four Republicans vying for his party’s nomination in next week’s gubernatorial primary. Among his top, would-be priorities: An elimination of the state’s personal income tax. He’d also slash government spending. His push: To make the state more economically competitive. Other goals include an elimination of the so-called “rain tax,” and a roll back of environmental regulations. Guest host Nathan Sterner

"If radio were a two-way visual medium," Nathan would see WYPR listeners every weekday between 5am and 3pm. Weekday mornings, Nathan serves up the latest Maryland news and weather (interspersed with the occasional snarky comment). Nathan also does continuity breaks through the midday, adds audio flaire to Sheilah Kast's "On The Record," infrequently fills in for Tom Hall on "Midday," does all sorts of fundraising stuff, AND "additional tasks where assigned". When not at WYPR, Nathan teaches a class on audio documentary at Towson University, and spends their spare time running around Baltimore's neighborhoods and hiking around Maryland's natural areas. Before coming to WYPR, Nathan spent 8 years at WAMU in Washington -- working every job from part-time receptionist to on-air host, gaining experience in promotions, fundraising, audience analysis, and program production. They've also served as a fundraising consultant, assisting dozens of public radio stations nationwide with on-air fundraisers. Originally from rural Pennsylvania, Nathan has called Charm City home since 2005.
