Stop Delegate Pat McDonough and His Anti-Immigrant Agenda!

Posted by Annie on September 20, 2007

Sunday, September 30th — 4:00 p.m. — VFW Hall at 8777 Philadelphia Road 

Republican Delegate Pat McDonough will be holding a fundraiser on September 30th to introduce his anti-immigration agenda for the 2008 session of the Maryland General Assembly.  “Speak English” is his main campaign slogan.  I don’t know about you, but my great-grandparents were immigrants to this country.  And at some point, Pat McDonough’s relatives were immigrants as well, since his name isn’t Kajika or Langundo or Opechancanough or Sitting Bull.   There will be a demonstration outside of his fundraiser beginning at 4:00 p.m.  For more information, check out the Harford County Green Party website (note that there is a place to RSVP).

Harford County Council vs. General Assembly Delegation?

Posted by Annie on June 3, 2007

Here’s an interesting article from the Baltimore Sun, June 3rd:

“Lawmakers seek accord” 

Often at odds, County Council and state delegation to meet   

They have sparred in the local press and traded jabs from their respective offices.

Now members of Harford’s County Council and General Assembly delegation are looking to a series of joint work sessions to air their differences and perhaps find a better way to address issues facing the county.

“We are all working for the same county,” said Councilman Dion F. Guthrie, an Edgewood Democrat.

The sessions, which will begin July 24 at the council offices in Bel Air, are a first, said council President Billy Boniface, who arranged the meetings. If officials can discuss legislative priorities and what they would like to accomplish in Annapolis before the 2008 legislative session, maybe they can avoid the acrimony and disappointment that have occurred in the past, he said.

…You can read the rest of the article by clicking on the title, which is a link to the article in its entirety.  It also states that there will be a public hearing on June 12th about the elected school board issue, which is a hot topic right now.  So even though the Generel Assembly isn’t in session right now, keep writing letters to your state delegates and senators; it’s always important to let them know what you think, especially when it comes to county issues.
