We Stand with the Capital Gazette

Written by Kristen Harbeson, Political Director on June 29, 2018
 
I heard that the Capital journalists wrote today’s paper from the back of a pick-up truck. Wherever they wrote the copy, the paper was delivered on time this morning, with the kind of steely-eyed professionalism everyone should aspire to.

Why Steuart Pittman? Eye on Annapolis

Guest post by Bob Gallagher, Co-Chair of the Anne Arundel County Chapter of the Maryland League of Conservation Voters in the Eye on Annapolis

Spotlight on the candidate for Anne Arundel County Executive

Through his budget powers, veto authority and horse trading, the county executive has a significant influence over the work of the county council. While the current county executive has done some good things for the environment like preserving open space and enhancing public access to waterways, he has also encouraged an accelerated pace of development that has harmed the environment and out quality of life.

This is the last in our series of emails introducing you to our endorsed candidates for county council and county executive for the 2018 elections.
