“Promises Made. Promises Delivered.”
It’s hard to believe that it has been almost four years since we came together and successfully realized the goal of electing me President of the Charles County Board of Commissioners.
During the 2014 campaign there were several issues that were of great concern to so many of us, including: managing the unlimited growth that was crippling our transportation system, overcrowding our schools, threatening our water supply and natural resources and resulting in some of the highest property tax rates in the state; restoring civility, professionalism and respect in county government – so we could have an administration you could be proud of and not embarrassed by; and continuing to provide the vital services for all residents without raising property and income tax rates.
Over the last three years, with your support and encouragement, along with the support of a majority of the Commissioners on the Board, I have restored civility and created an experienced and professional county government; limited sprawl development and curbed the unbridled – and unsustainable – growth through sound land-use policies; improved and built new roads that benefit not just our commuters but all residents; and that’s not all:
- For the first time in county history, we have a AAA Bond Rating across the board – saving us millions of dollars of interest payments over the years;
- There’s been NO increase in property tax rates;
- There’s been NO increase in income tax rates;
- We have increased the funding for education and public safety;
- We have made major transportation improvements
If you believe, as I do, that Charles County is worth fighting for and that the quality of life of ALL our residents must be our highest priority, then please join me on this campaign. There is much work to be done and I need your help to ensure that our county moves forward and is not hijacked by those who are supported by special interest groups that will take us back to the days of unlimited growth, overcrowded schools, congested highways and high taxes.
Please save the date of Saturday, April 7th for our campaign kick-off event at Sartik’s from 4:00 – 6:00 pm – and by our numbers let’s demonstrate that our county belongs to all of us.
