Daxon: GO VOTE! Jeff Gahler. Voter picks for Harford County School Board
From Eric Daxon:
Another vote going to Jeff Gahler….
I talked to a friend and mentor. He is lifelong Harford County resident, business owner and member of the Harford County Chamber. He is one of those guys you just like right away. He was leaning seriously Bane.
We both agreed Bane is a nice guy and easy to talk to. If elections were decided the basis on being nice this election would be a slam dunk.
My friend did not know much about Banes decisions as Sheriff, but then who does….
He did not like the helicopter Sheriff Bane saddled on Harford County. There are actually four total. Only one flies.
He did not like that Sheriff Bane would use forfeiture to fund the helicopter.
Forfeiture is the practice of the police taking your stuff without a trial.
He did not agree with Bane getting tanks for the county.
He asked, “Why do we need tanks?” Beats me buddy!
What’s next, are we going to get machine guns, bazookas and flame throwers because the federal government’s handing them out.
He did not agree with pushing tanks and helicopters on taxpayers without public input.
We don’t need tanks and helicopters in Harford County.
He did not agree with building a brand new jail that sits nearly empty.
He did not agree with deputies not getting raises.
He did not agree with under cover cars being able to pull over citizens.
He did not agree with deputies wearing military like uniforms when making traffic stops.
The next Sheriff of Harford County should give those helicopters to a aviation mechanical school and let student learn how to fix helicopters.
Now the tanks… maybe we could paint them pink and turn them into ice cream trucks. Everyone likes ice cream.
This is one race in Harford County where your vote can make a difference. Those that know Bane best know he needs a vacation.
Vote for Jeff Gahler. If you agree with this…. share it with your friends. Comment on it. If you want to donate some of your time on election day. Voting starts tomorrow!
Harford County School Board Voting Guide.
We are now allowed to election our school board. Let’s get rid of the old appointed YES men and women. Our children deserve a school system that lives in its budget and honors the teachers contract. They control half the counties budget. It is a very important job in Harford County.
I respect their service but we need people who will balance the budget…
District A Fred A. Mullis: I have known Fred for over 8 years the longest of all the candidates. By no means is he a yes man. He is going to make sure the budget doesn’t have “short falls”.
District B Bob Frisch: Bob was elected to the board 4 years ago in District A. Now he has been redistricted into District B. It’s noteworthy that in 2010 Bob got more votes than the councilman in district A. Bob works very hard and shows up at every meeting. This guy is like a skinny Ray Lewis… he is everywhere, every event, every meeting.
District C Joe Voskuhl he lives in the district I vote in, district C…. he has my vote.
District D Mike Simon: The only candidate who openly came out and criticized Common Core. Common Core is the federal takeover of our local schools. This program is being forced on the states and is already 1 Billion Dollars over budget. I like MIKE!
District E Both candidates have similar views. Art Kaff is the incumbent.
District F Michael Hitchings is an idea factory. A key element missing in public schools (all of them not just HCPS) is parental involvement. He wants to focus on getting all parents involved in the education of their kids. That’s a message both teachers and parents need to hear. MAKE IT MIKE!
Del. James: Proud to be endorsed by National Association of Social Workers
From Friends of Mary-Dulany James:
I am proud to announce that The Maryland Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers has announced their endorsement of my candidacy for the Maryland Senate.
The mission of the social work profession is rooted in a set of core values, and I am so proud that they know I share these values:
Dignity and worth of the person
Importance of human relationships
Throughout my tenure as Chair of the Health and Human Resources Subcommittee, I have been steadfast in my dedication to ensuring that Marylanders have access to some of the best healthcare-including mental healthcare-in the country. In addition to securing necessary funding for University of Maryland Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Hospital, two of the best hospitals in the nation, I have fought to provide millions of dollars in funding for local hospitals such as Harford Memorial Hospital, Upper Chesapeake Hospital, and Unions Memorial Hospital.
Delegate Mary-Dulany A. James, Candidate for State Senate
