Spotlight on the candidates for Anne Arundel County Council District 5

Spotlight on the candidates for Anne Arundel County Council

The Anne Arundel County Council has seven members. It takes a majority of four votes to pass any bill, including any bill to protect our environment.

The Anne Arundel Chapter has endorsed six candidates for the County Council. We are confident that, if elected, they will give Annapolis a strong conservation majority on the Council. Now we have to get them elected.

This is the latest in a series of weekly emails that focus on one candidates each week. This week we will introduce you to Dawn Meyers, the Democratic candidate for District 5 running against incumbent Michael Peroutka. District 5 stretches from Severna Park to the tip of the Broadneck Peninsula. Find your County Council District here.

The Life of Ajax Eastman

We have sad news, one of our co-founders Ajax Eastman has passed away on Friday morning of March 2nd. In 2014 we awarded her the John V. Kabler Award for her dedication in protecting Maryland’s environment.

Involved in environmental issues since 1970, Baltimore City’s Ajax Eastman cofounded the Maryland League of Conservation Voters in 1979. She was on the board of the Maryland Environmental Trust, past President of the Maryland Conservation Council, co-chairman of the Maryland Wild lands Committee, and on numerous state boards and commissions. Ajax’s frustration with the failure of traditional lobbying and testimony to pass a bottle bill through the General Assembly led to her decision to enter the political arena through Maryland LCV. She also took on a more successful fight to protect the crown jewels of Maryland’s protected lands—the wild lands, even becoming a namesake. In addition to her hard work in Annapolis, she also is a naturalist and teacher of the state’s natural wonders to kids at camps and in Maryland parks.
 
Ajax’s memorial service will be on Saturday, March 17th at 2:00 PM at Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church on Charles St in Balt.

Life. Love. Maryland LCV ❤️️

 

No doubt about it, LIFE is TOO FULL. Three (teenage) boys, running my own architectural business, keeping the home ‘presentable’, much needed exercise, eating right, and maybe even some quiet time for myself. When DO I get to spend time with my husband, Lance? Thankfully, Lance and I share more than just a passion for each other – but also a passion for our environments.

We are both architects, having met and married while at Mississippi State School of Architecture. Our relationship developed through our desire to shape our built environment. But, most importantly today, we are able to share our passion for our natural environment through our roles on the boards of Maryland LCV and Maryland LCV Education Fund, respectively.
