Hearing on the Capital Budget
February 8, 2012
Tonight featured a hearing on the county capital budget. It was interesting and residents spoke compellingly about a diverse array of topics.
I expect that we are going to make significant changes to the capital budget. I am looking to protect the Purple Line and biking facilities, and I am waiting to hear about MCPS needs.
Meanwhile I am working hard on an effort to stop the Annapolis cost shift to county governments for pensions.
I’m continuing my focus on the Purple Line, working with my colleague George Leventhal to keep that priority on track.
I’m excited to tackle these big picture challenges while delving far into the weeds of capital projects. It’s a nice mix.
