Biography

F. Vernon Boozer (born January 30, 1936), was a Republican State Senator for District 9 in Maryland.

Background

Boozer served Maryland as a Republican delegate and state senator for nearly 30 years. He has served District 9, which is a portion of Baltimore County. In 1986, he ran unopposed and defeated Howard W. Kramer Sr. in the primary election with 91% of the vote.

He faced a Democratic challenger in 1990, but Kauko H. Kokkonen only managed to secure 20% of the vote to Boozer’s 80%.

In 1994, Boozer again ran unopposed. His biggest challenge was in the Republican Primary where John C. Head managed to get 48% of the vote.

In 1998, Boozer was defeated in the Republican primary, by his challenge Andrew P. Harris. Harris won the race with 54% of the vote to Boozer’s 46%. Harris went on to defeat Anthony O. Blades in the general election. According to an article in the Washington Post, Boozer may have lost his election bid because of his pro-choice views in a very conservative district.

Education

Boozer graduated from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina with his A.B. in 1958. He returned to college and received his J.D. from the University of Maryland School of Law in 1964.
