VISION

After living in Annapolis for more than 40 years, I know the challenges our town faces. As Mayor, I will work to reduce crime, protect Annapolis’ shoreline, attract jobs, and support better schools. I will be a hands-on mayor who will roll up his sleeves on day one and get to work. That is why I am running for Mayor and I ask for your support.

ISSUES & PROBLEMS

Protecting Our Quality of Life

From curbing out-of-control development to protecting our waterfront and nature resources, supporting and growing locally based businesses and transforming city government to be more accessible and accountable, John Astle is the leader Annapolis needs for a strong future. 

Focusing On Our Public Schools

As a State Senator, John Astle increased investments in Anne Arundel County schools by $13 million, and made it easier for parents to have a voice in school boards. As our mayor, he’ll be a passionate advocate for better local
schools.

Making Our Neighborhoods Safer

A former police officer and long-time State Senator, John Astle fought to give Maryland’s State Police more authority to investigate crime in Annapolis and fought for resources to fight the opioid epidemic, expand treatment options and punish dealers. As Mayor, he’ll put more cops on the street to reduce crime and give them the benefits they need to keep them here.
