From Harford County Public Schools:
Governor Martin O’Malley will continue his “Jobs Across Maryland Tour” with a visit to Bel Air High School tomorrow, Tuesday, May 25th at 1:00 p.m.
The Governor’s visit will include meeting with first-year teacher Kyle Benfield and his Bel Air Electrathon Club. An electrathon is a three- or four-wheeled electric vehicle, similar in appearance to a Go-Kart with an aerodynamic body, but powered by an electric motor and batteries. The Electrathon Club provides students the opportunity to implement their designs and modifications to the electrathon race car.
These hands-on experiences mirror a variety of challenges the students could face in professional fields such as aerodynamics, alternative energy solutions, transportation technology and mechanical engineering.
Following the Governor’s visit with Mr. Benfield and his students, he will tour the newly constructed Bel Air High School and depart around 2:00 p.m. Media is welcome to attend.
When: Tuesday, May 25, 2010 1:00 p.m.
Where: Bel Air High School, 100 Heighe Street, Bel Air, MD 21014
What: Governor’s visit to Bel Air High School
I can’t wait to hear his excuse for this one. What business wants to operate in md with this garbage.
It is important to keep in mind that Maryland taxpayers pay the highest local income taxes in the country. Only 14 states allow local income taxes, and none to the extent of Maryland. Statewide, the rate averages 2.75%, almost one full percentage point higher than the statewide average in Ohio, the state with the second highest average local income tax rate.
