Just as “slash and burn” farming is an outdated, simplistic practice that actually undermines the stability of the soil; so too, does “slash and burn” budgeting (from an outdated, simplistic mindset) undermine the stability of a community. The “can’t, don’t and won’t” way of thinking MUST give way to the “can, do and will” determination. We CAN solve our budget issues without destroying county services. The naysayers may view this as an impossible pipe dream; the “doers” view it as a prelude to a plan.
The group of nasty mudslingers that fudge numbers, hack accounts and bully anyone who doesn’t think like them want to turn Maryland (and Carroll County) into a southern, white, Christian, zero-tolerance zone, or secede from the USA…their words. Keep in mind that “Christian” is strictly up to their interpretation. Please read: http://protectingcarrollschools.com/keep-carroll-conservative-prepares-to-tyrannize-carroll-county/. It is a long read, but necessary for EVERY CARROLL COUNTY RESIDENT.
Tomorrow, if we want to move Carroll County forward in a positive and professional direction focused on infrastructure, economic development, top notch public safety and excellence in education, we MUST elect Steve Wantz (Dist. 1), Dick Weaver (Dist. 2), Dennis Frazier (Dist. 3), Barb Biller (Dist. 4) and re-elect Doug Howard (Dist. 5). The ONLY Board of Education candidates to vote for are: Virginia Harrison, Bob Lord and Devon Rothschild (NO relation to Richard Rothschild). Please also vote: DeWees for Sheriff, Brinkley for State Senator and DeLeonardo for State’s Attorney.
The supporters of our negative incumbents and candidates are organized and voting. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR VOTES WILL COUNT, as this is a tight race that will determine the direction and reputation of our county for the next 4 years.
Make your voting plan tonight and then please follow through tomorrow. No one can be too busy.
