Anne Arundel County Sheriff-elect Everett Sesker won a historic victory against Republican Sheriff Jim Fredericks last week after several rounds of ballot counting. A Democrat, Sesker campaigned on a progressive vision for the sheriff’s office. He hopes to use the agency, which is mostly responsible for Circuit Court security and legal service, to tackle cyclical crime caused by addiction and mental illness. When he is sworn in at the circuit courthouse in Annapolis on Dec. 6, Sesker will become the first Black sheriff of Anne Arundel County.
