From the office of Del. Glen Glass:
Letter to the Editor,
While we’re already in a battle to stop instate tuition for illegal immigrants (go to: www.mdpetitions.com to down load and sign a petition), the politicians and the MDTA are trying to increase tolls, and abolish the decal system.
Many of you have voiced your outrage at the proposed increases. I have one thing to say to these elected officials and bureaucrats who want to put their hand in our pockets again, “our money belongs to us and you do not have a right to it”.
Most of this toll money goes to Montgomery County to fund the ICC/ Mass Transit.
They want to raise our tolls to $8.00 in the next 18 months, and replace the decal system with EZ Pass, increasing the cost to $100.00 dollars annually. Tourism will suffer because many will go elsewhere to avoid paying the toll.
Many in Harford County work and shop in Cecil County and can’t afford any more taxing. Businesses will lose money because people will be less likely to travel to their store. The fishermen who trailer their boats will be hit; they pay as much as an 18 wheeler and will be less likely to come and spend money at local businesses.
This tax is regressive, it hurts the poor and retired the most!
Please attend the hearing at Perryville High School—June 16 at 6PM
(register by 5PM) to speak June 27th at Havre de Grace Activity Center.
See you there!
Your servant and Delegate,
It’s time to take Maryland back from the politicians and give it to the people!
