About Elizabeth

Growing up on the Eastern Shore Elizabeth Lankford learned about hard work and character. As a young girl, she was involved in her family’s agricultural business, seeing how the government can be both necessary and intrusive.

After graduating from James Madison University Elizabeth moved to Washington DC.  She began working for the Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA).   The HDA is the national organization representing primary pharmaceutical distributors, the vital link between the nation’s pharmaceutical manufacturers and pharmacies, hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics and others nationwide.  At HDA her responsibilities grew quickly.  She helped state implement safety measures within the pharmaceutical supply chain throughout the south and Midwest.   

But the Eastern Shore was calling her back.  She had an opportunity to run her own business and made the brave jump into the world of owning a small business.  In December of 2016, Elizabeth purchased the Blue Crab Bay Company, in Melfa.  Blue Crab Bay is a specialty food and homeware manufacturer and distributor.

As a businesswoman, Elizabeth has seen the impact of needless government regulations.  She has known the challenges of making payroll.  Elizabeth has modernized the company’s internal operations, upgraded its supply chain, and expanded the business reach of the company.   

Now Elizabeth has decided to take the bold step into a run for State Senate because things haven’t gotten better while she was away. Opioids have spiraled out of control. Job growth hasn’t picked up despite the economy improving. Flooding isn’t just the same problem it was a decade ago but has gotten worse.  What we have right now isn’t working. It’s time for someone to step up and not just do the bare minimum needed to get re-elected. Things have to change.

Young, energetic, and a problem solver, she looks forward to the opportunity to represent residents of the 6th Senate District.
