From Ted Haynie:
We are hosting a “Meet and Greet” event for these two candidates for the Board of County Commissioners to give our local citizens a chance to talk with and get to know them and the issues they support in their campaigns. Both of the candidates are running on the Democratic side of the ticket. If you’ve been following the discussion of the issues during the campaign then you are aware that party affiliation as little to nothing to do with the positions individual candidates have taken on the important issues; the issues that will determine the quality of our lives as residents of Calvert County for years, even decades, to come. These are not red or blue issues and every citizen should be actively engaged in this election.
The current Board of County Commissioners has proposed a radical departure from the vision of the original Town Center concept by supporting a dramatic increase in development along the Route 4 corridor. They have done so with a disturbing lack of effort to both gather important data to inform their decision making or to engage our community in the process.
Please don’t sit on the sidelines. Come to our home on August 5th, enjoy some light refreshments, an afternoon on Back Creek, and learn what these two candidates can offer us, our families, and our futures. We hope to see you then.
