As I look back, these meetings stand out as a galvanizing force of my serving as a Maryland Delegate. Please come and join in the usual lively discussion on issues that are currently before the Maryland Legislature in Annapolis, including health care, education, and protection of our precious Chesapeake Bay.
This has been a cold week here in Annapolis, though not nearly as icy as back home in Columbia. Lloyd and I drove home most evenings to see Zach. He continues to rest mostly peacefully and is constantly in our hearts, whether we are in Annapolis or home.
We look forward to being back in Columbia for the weekend.
The Howard County Delegation will be holding a public hearing on Thursday, February 13th, at 7:30 pm at the County Office Building in Ellicott City for testimony regarding statewide issues currently before the legislature.
As we read the two articles below about the proposals by legislative leadership to improve our state's business climate, I think it would be prudent to ask ourselves whether, with the presence of NSA and Fort Meade and its cyber command center, we can be anything other than a hub for these industries. So, since we are already this hub, do we need to lure more contractors with tax breaks? I think not.
