Ready Report: Delegation Public Meeting, Safe Streets Investigation & More…

As we reach the end of October, I wanted to share with you an invitation to give feedback and input to our Carroll County legislative delegation as well as share some of what I’ve been working on the past week. As always, to stay connected, you can also follow me on FacebookInstagram and Twitter (X). Have a great week!

Carroll County Delegation Public Hearing & Meeting – December 7th

The Carroll County Delegation will hold our annual public hearing on proposed county legislation and public comment period on Thursday, December 7, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.  The hearing will take place at the Carroll County Office Building, 225 North Center Street, Westminster, MD 21157.

First, our Delegation will be hearing Carroll County-specific bill proposals for the 2024 Maryland General Assembly Legislative Session.  These legislative requests are ones made by the County Board of Commissioners, local non-profit organizations, and individual Delegation members.  The public is encouraged to attend and give input on the proposals. Second, there will also be an open comment opportunity where members of the public can share their thoughts and concerns on any state-related issue with our delegation. You can get the details on the public meeting by clicking here.

Ready in the News

Last week, I wrote to you about a recent investigation by Fox 45 which revealed that the Safe Streets Program, an evidence-based violence prevention and interruption program that works to reduce shootings and homicides in high violence areas, is spending taxpayer dollars for personal shopping sprees. A few days ago, they were raided by the FBI. It turns out this is not the first time they have been investigated and raided.

Earlier this week, I joined Bryan Nehman and C4 on WBAL 1090 AM to discuss this. You can watch/listen to the interview by clicking here.

Ready in the Community –

Carroll County Community College Pre-Session Meeting

It was great to be at Carroll Community College last week to hear about some of the progress and outlook for the college on a number of priorities including enrollment, jobs and skills training and long-term facility improvements. We also discussed legislative priorities for Maryland Association of Community Colleges in the 2024 Legislative Session beginning in January.

Supporting Manchester Wrestling

Ruth and I had a fun night supporting Manchester Wrestling at their annual crab feast on Saturday at the Manchester Fire Department Hall. The crabs were big, and fat and it was great to see so many people out supporting youth sports in our community.
