Tim May to Run for Register of Wills

George Wenschhof

Today, Republican Timothy S. May; Chief Judge of the Orphans Court of Frederick County, Maryland, filed the necessary paperwork to run for Register of Wills.

Mr. May was raised in Frederick County and has long been involved in the community. He has served as Orphans Court Judge for 16 years; the last 12 years were as Chief Judge. In a recent interview with Mr. May he said "he felt his time spent as Judge of the Orphans Court and his own personal experiences well prepare him for the position of Register of Wills".

When asked why he is running, he said "he liked to help people and felt he could be beneficial to those in their time of need. He added he had learned from his own personal experiences to deal with adversity and to persevere in difficult times".

Tim May further stated "he felt his time spent as Pastor of the Pleasant View Church of the Brethren for the last eight years combined with his own personal experiences will serve him well when working with those experiencing a personal loss".

Mr. May's experience in the community is extensive and includes being; former Town of Brunswick Chief of Police, Department Chairman of The National Fire Academy, former owner of the Frederick Falcons Semi-Pro Football Team (1977-1987), former Commissioner Minor League football - East Coast, and state Fire Marshall. He is also PM, PT, and PI of Columbia Lodge No. 58.

He currently owns and operates the Templar Corporation; a multi-faceted company that includes Tim May Security and Investigation. He is married to the former Terri Poole and they have a 14 year old son. Mr. May also has two grown children and eight grandchildren.

He will make his formal announcement on Monday March 8 at 4:00 PM in front of the Frederick County Courthouse.

A campaign website; is currently under construction and will be available to view within a week.

incumbent Register of Wills is Republican Virginia P. Fifer who has served in this position for twenty years. She has not yet announced her intention to seek another term.

The primary will be held on September 14 and the General Election will be on November 2.


Editor's note -
I have known Mr. May for many years and find him to be well qualified for this position. He will have my support.

I have also long argued for this position to be state merit based and not subject to election. You can read more about my position in a column published in on 10-30-2006
