From Del. Kathy Szeliga:
The 2015 legislative session is finished. Maryland taxpayers are safe until next January. While there are rumors about a “special session,” I believe them to be just that – rumors. I do not think Governor Hogan has any interest in bringing legislators back to Annapolis this year.
In the upcoming months, I’m excited to be participating with community groups to improve our state. There are three important activities happening in the next few weeks. Perhaps you will be able to participate with me in at least one of them.
I hope to see you at one of these great events!
Angel Park will be an all-inclusive playground and amphitheater facility in Perry Hall near the library on Honeygo Blvd. The concept is similar to Annie’s Playground in Harford County. It is a playground that kids with disabilities can fully utilize. Angel Park will include slides that prevent static shock, equipment that is fully-wheelchair accessible, and other various unique playground equipment that all kids can use, no matter the disability or handicap.
Kelli Szczybor and her leadership team have raised almost $1 million for the project! The State of Maryland and Baltimore County have committed more than $200,000.
After selling out next week’s fundraiser almost immediately after announcing it, Kelli and her team had to move the event to the Timonium Fairgrounds. The residents and businesses in Perry Hall and Baltimore County are excited about supporting such a great project.
This is a terrific project we can all be proud of. My husband and I will be at the Bull & Oyster Roast this weekend and also on the construction crew in September.

Human Trafficking is happening right here in Maryland! Most people think this is a problem in some other country and certainly not right here in Baltimore.
Glen Burnie Man gets 11 years for sex trafficking a 15 year old girl – Baltimore Sun, April 11, 2015
Araminta was started In October of 2010 with a desire and goal to stop the trafficking of children in Baltimore and throughout Maryland. Freedom 4/24 was started to raise awareness of the sexual exploitation of human trafficking of women and children around the world and provide financial support to partner organizations dedicated to bringing freedom and doing justice.
Together, they are holding a 5K and Family Walk to raise awareness and money to fight Human Trafficking here in Maryland and abroad.
