From Del. Mary-Dulany James:
A strong job market is one of the keys to a healthy economy, and as your Delegate for the last 16 years, I have worked hard to help the private sector create jobs right here in Harford County. In furtherance of this mission, I am pleased to announce that the Northeastern Maryland Additive Manufacturing Innovation Authority (NMAMIA) has created two Joint Work Statements for Collaborative Research and Development Agreements with area manufacturing companies: Integrata Security and Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing Technologies, LLC, based in Fallston, Maryland.
This past year in Annapolis I sponsored legislation to create NMAMIA, which functions as a partnership between the military, State government, and the private sector to allow private businesses to access the vast technology and hardware located on Aberdeen Proving Ground. NMAMIA was designed to improve the accessibility of, and connections between, existing infrastructure, expertise, and educational resources within and outside the region; facilitate cooperation in the development of new products and processes; bridge gaps between research, product development, and the commercial application of new technologies and manufacturing processes; and facilitate the involvement of Harford Community College, Cecil College, Towson University, and other segments of the higher learning community in developing and sustaining a skilled additive manufacturing workforce through degree, certification, specialized training, and continuing education programs.
Lets work together to bring good paying jobs to Harford County.
Roger Greene says
People! PLEASE do not vote for this O’Malley / Brown democrat!
I think that MDJ earned my vote by actually doing something in Annapolis. Why am I paying people like glen glass? I want my legislators to do thinks like this projects. This isn’t congress… I want my state delegates doing more than voting NO.
Me thinks NOT! says
Before we go bragging about how helpful this bill really was, perhaps someone should read the bill and the Fiscal Policy Note.
“This bill establishes the Northeastern Maryland Additive Manufacturing Innovation
Authority and Fund. The Governor MAY, beginning in fiscal 2016, include funds in the State budget to partially support the Authority. However, any appropriation is contingent upon the commitment of Cecil and Harford counties to contribute funds to the Authority during the same fiscal year.”
So if the Governor chooses not to include funds in Fiscal Year 2016 or Cecil and Harford County cannot commit funds – this Authority is null and void.
Seems to me before anyone votes for this woman, they need to check the bills and her voting records. They speak louder than the words she writes.
Loyal Harford Dem says
I think it is quite facetious of Mary-Dulany to say that she is willing to work together when she has openly admitted she does not want to work with certain people simply because they supported her opponent in the primary and even threatened to bring legal action against certain people in her primary opponent’s camp, as it were. It is a stupid move she’s making, really. I know of some committed Dems who are not even going to vote for her because they are disgusted with how much she is making herself sound like a Republican in her mailers and her TV ads. And Dems in Annapolis are worried that she may not even win this seat.
As such, she only wants this seat because it is the same seat that her father held years ago and she is just capitalizing off of her name.
Good thing I don’t live in District 34, otherwise I wouldn’t have to make such a decision. I just wish we had a better Democrat (with a “Capital D”) running in this district. Oh, well. Maybe she’ll lose this go-around and a better one can challenge Cassilly four years from now.
Tom Myers, what did she do to you? Wow, I don’t know what to think now that you are not supporting her.
Loyal Harford Dem says
Look, everyone! Mike Hiob has come up with another phony username. Not very imaginative, are you, Mikey?
The first sentence of this article made me laugh. Maryland’s Dems policies are so oppressive to business creation, growth, and therefore job creation I find it funny Ms. James is running on this platform. There are existing companies that provide high paying jobs that would increase if only our government would get out of the way.
LOOK AT THE MONEY says
Please take the time and look at Mary-Dulany James campaign finances.
Go to https://campaignfinancemd.us/Public/ViewReceipts?theme=vista and type in ” James, M-D Friends Of ” in the Receiving Committee blank. Look at all of the big developers and deep pockets that she owes.
Also, look at the huge personal loan she just gave her campaign. A $157,000.00 personal loan! How did she afford this? Who gave her all of that hidden money and why? What did she do for that money? How will the tax payers repay that debt?
Now, add up some of the big name donors that she owes the most too!
Clark Turner from 2005 to 2014 = $24,210.00
Klein Family and Klein Family Development Corporation from 2005 to 2014 = $21,500.00
Joe Snee from 2005 to 2014 = $13,400.00
Ward, Craig $6,550.00
Edmeades & Stromdahl, LTD. $4,250.00
William H. Cox, Jr $4,125.00
What have the tax payers given up for this?
DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS TRASH! DO NOT VOTE FOR Mary-Dulany James!
I don’t know that I support calling her trash. But you have just hit the tip of the iceberg in terms of contributions she has received from developer interests. I looked at her numbers and pretty much every contribution of $1,000 or more is coming from somebody or some entity related to the big players. You have named some but there are many more in her records. Given that she works in Joe Snee’s office and he uses her to do his bidding on behalf of his clients it is absolutely no surprise.
It is interesting to note that Erickson is now creeping into our local politics having given to MDJ, Barry Glassman and Pat Vincenti (and probably others I haven’t found yet). In light of the CCRC going in at Eva Mar which is a direct competitor to Erickson’s Oak Crest facility, one has to wonder what they are up to.
LOOK AT THE MONEY says
The “MONEY GAME” was the “TRASH” I’m talking about.
Also, Mary-Dulany James was once very involved in getting that CCRC in Aberdeen. She paved the way for them to come to Harford County.
She was also very involved in the James Run TIFF “TRASH”.
James be in your pockets says
She’s just a Brownie. Run like Ronnie and govern like Tedder!
Are people that stupid to vote for her? Yep!
Of course with all the illegals registered through motor voter…. they will put her in.
