From JoAnn M. Macdonald:
The importance of voting in the November 4th election is crucial to the well-being of Harford County. This is no mere “off-year”. In County Council District A the communities of Edgewood, Joppa, Joppatowne, Magnolia and the newly added part of Abingdon, make this district one of the most important seats on the Council. With our County Council representative Dion Guthrie, we in this district successfully fought against the installation of a waste transfer station on Route 7 near Route 152 and prevented the incinerator plant from being built on Trimble Road where Kohl’s is now located.
We could not have found a more dedicated, more concerned, true champion for the citizens of District A. He works with all citizens and parties—he presents the problems citizens have, to the proper entities—no matter if it is the county executive who frequently disagrees with him. We are involved in petitioning the county to purchase the Joppatowne pool property from the new owner, so that we can have a much-needed community center for the greater Joppa and Joppatowne area.
In the past four years, Dion worked with the US Army to remove the existing incinerator plant, along Trimble Road between Joppatowne and Edgewood. He has worked with the Kohl’s company to put its distribution center there—creating thousands of jobs in his district! Dion attends every meeting of Edgewood, Joppa/Joppatowne, Abingdon, and Bush River Community Councils to keep citizens informed.
Dion’s endorsements to date: The Harford County Deputy Sheriffs Union, Parents Choice of Maryland, African-American Democratic Club of Harford County, Harford County Business for Responsible Government, Teacher Recommended by the MSEA and HCEA, Legislative Association Group of the Harford County Real Estate Association, Sierra Club and Baltimore Sun.
I encourage District A voters to re-elect Dion Guthrie!
