Going through a little Inner Arbor withdrawl at the moment, combined with the incredible urge to just talk about other things are going on around the state. So let's take a look, shall we?
Easton is looking at creating a State Arts and Entertainment District. You can read about it here. Hmm. I can think of two towns/cities in HoCo connected by US29 that could benefit from such a designation. Wonder what would be required?
Maryland has kept its AAA bond rating, which is a great thing in all sorts of economic conditions. Briefly stated, it means Maryland gets the best interest rates on borrowing. Not that having the State go deeper into debt is awesome, but it is a good financial tool to have.
Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, who would likely be a very strong candidate for Governor in 2018, should the nigh-unthinkable happen and Larry Hogan pull off a huge upset, is willing to pony up BaltCo bucks to help fund the Baltimore Metro's Red Line. But he's not happy about it at all. If you have access to the Daily Record you can see the article here, otherwise, take my word for it.
And closer to home, a lot of things, but the only thing I'm going to note is the first County Executive forum of the General Election cycle was held last week, as PFLAG sponsored their forum. I know Sparty said that in his opinion, Watson took the forum by a nose; I have heard good things about both candidates. The article seems to complain good synopsies of what the candidates' positions were on various issues. Haven't heard that anything was taken out of context.
There's a lot of other stuff, but that's what the new week is for, True Believers! Continue to come back for more, and more, and more!
Happy Bastille Day!
And let's be careful out there.
