- Former MD State Treasurer and Carroll County Democrat Richard Dixon died Thursday after suffering a stroke. Richard was the first African American to hold the position of State Treasurer and the last Democrat from Carroll County to be elected to the House of Delegates. He represented us in Annapolis for 14 years. He was then appointed treasurer in 1996.
Before being elected Delegate Richard served in Vietnam and then on the Carroll County Board of Education.
He was a Conservative Democrat who demonstrated that it is possible to win elections in red counties.
Heartfelt condolences to the Dixon family from our Democratic family.
