From the office of Del. Glen Glass:
Maryland is a great place to live! Surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay to the east, mountains to the west with seafood, fishing, hunting, boating, crabbing and where I live in Aberdeen, our own worldwide tourist attraction, Ripkin Stadium. The Little League Baseball series last weekend was a success. As a native Marylander and young boy I grew up, like many young boys, playing Little League baseball. Sports teaches children a valuable lesson in teamwork. Despite the bad weather, the Bel Air BBQ Bash was a huge success. Havre de Grace’s Seafood Festival had good food, nice people and the Charlie Daniels Band (saw them while in the Army in Savannah, Georgia). Walking along Tydings Park I remembered why I love Maryland so much. I met a bird watching tourist from New Jersey. We watched an Osprey swoop down and catch a fish, but before the Osprey could eat it a Bald Eagle tried to attack and take the fish. While the Bald Eagle chased the Osprey, it dropped the fish into the water. Watching that made me think of what’s happening around Maryland and elsewhere in the world. Even though we are sometimes overwhelmed by what’s going on with the economy, tolls, taxes and education we need to continue pursuing what’s right for our families and children. We can’t give in and let it be taken away! We have an ‘out of control Tax Train’ in Annapolis that we need to keep chasing until it ‘drops the fish’.
I stand firm against any new taxes or increases.
It’s always a pleasure talking to everyone and I continue to be inspired by your thoughts and comments.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and stay in touch!
