In a letter dated April 20, Dels. Susan McComas, Rick Impallaria and Pat McDonough have formally requested that Dels. J.B. Jennings and Wayne Norman step down from their largely ceremonial positions as chair and vice-chair of the Harford County delegation to the Maryland General Assembly in Annapolis.
In the letter, which is jointly signed by McComas and Impallaria – the former delegation chair and vice-chair – as well as McDonough, the trio accuses the Jennings/Norman failed leadership team of creating a hostile environment, leading the delegation into a legislative missteps, and being “easily manipulated by outside forces.”
“We do not take this action without cause. You both have had your probationary period to demonstrate competence in leadership and legislative skills, and you both have failed,” the delegates state in their letter.
McComas, Impallaria, and McDonough go on to list a half-dozen reasons for requesting the leadership ouster.
“Because the Delegation needs leadership that care about and is accountable to the people of Harford County, and because the people of Harford County need experienced, effective leadership, we ask that you resign as Chair and Vice Chair.”
