From the Office of Del. Donna Stifler:
The Apartment and Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington (AOBA) has announced that Harford County State Delegate Donna Stifler (R, Distict 35A) will be honored on November 13 with an Outstanding Leadership Award for her tenacious pursuit of legislation to ensure the safety of elevators in the State of Maryland.
The non-partisan legislation which was signed into law by the Governor after the 2009 Legislative Session brings Maryland in-line with its surrounding jurisdictions and allows the use of third party inspectors. The new law not only reduces State expenditures and eliminates the backlog of inspections, but, more importantly, increases the safety of the vertical riding public.
“This is a win –win,” said Stifler. “On one side of the ledger, it reduces state spending. On the other side, it brings in revenue. It also provides opportunity to small businesses to obtain state contracts. This is a stimulus that actually works,” said Stifler. “And it benefits all taxpayers at the same time. I am greatly honored to receive this award.”
