OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Candidates for statewide offices in Maryland have addressed a conference sponsored by the Maryland Association of Counties.

They outlined their visions for the state and pledged to work with local leaders on Saturday. The Baltimore Sun reports that public health emergency management, police body-camera footage and tax collection were among the topics discussed at a forum. Democratic gubernatorial nominee Wes Moore, whose campaign said he had a scheduling conflict, was the only one of the six major party nominees for governor, attorney general and comptroller who didn’t participate. Del. Dan Cox, Moore’s Republican opponent, noted Moore’s absence in his remarks.

Moore attended previous days of the conference.
