Hey kids! Before you all take off and be with family disappear get drunk trap shoot do whatever you do for the holidays of your choice, you have an opportunity and more importantly, an obligation to be involved in local HoCo civic affairs this week. The opportunities about this week, so please attend one, more than one, or all!
Tuesday evening, Congressman Elijah Cummings and others will host the "Safe Space" community conversation to discuss recent events of hate and cultural insensitivity at Howard Community College, from 7pm to 9pm in the Smith Theater. If you attended the recent OneHoward event, you owe it to yourself to attend this very important event. According to the organizers, this forum will be focused around listening to community concerns. So please make it an appoint to attend! I will see you there.
Wednesday evening, the Howard County Delegation will hold a public hearing on all local prefiled bills. This hearing will begin at 7pm Wednesday evening, in the Banneker Room at the George Howard Building. Delegate Vanessa Atterbeary will reintroduce her legislation to elect school board members by district, and there will be a host of other local bills regarding our local Department of Education.
Then, Thursday evening, last, and possibly least, the Howard County Public School System Budget Review Committee shall meet in the C. Vernon Gray conference room of said George Howard Building, still located at 3430 Courthouse Drive in Ellicott City. No, you can't stay over from the Wednesday night meeting and attend Thursday night's meeting. Not unless if you know good places to hide. Really good places to hide. And I hope you will join me at that event, too!
