About Joe


Ward One Alderman

As the Alderman of Ward One, I represent your interests on the City Council and at City Hall.

Fifteen years ago I settled in the Annapolis Historic District with my family. We had moved to the area eight years earlier when I opened an office above Conduit and Main – just in time for the re-bricking of Main Street. My background as a computer software executive includes project management, marketing, finance and programming. Since retirement I have been active in civic affairs, served on several Annapolis City committees, and have worked for 4 ½ years on the City Council to make a great city even better.

I welcome and continue to encourage conversations among all the stakeholders of our community: residents, businesses and institutions. I hope you will join my mailing list so that we can continue the dialogue about the issues facing Ward One and our city.

Please feel free to contact me with your questions and concerns – or if you need help finding your way around City government. I can be reached at 410-212-5065 or by email:

By Authority of Friends of Joe Budge; Rick Struse, Treasurer
