BRONROTT AND FRICK
HANG OUT ON FACEBOOK
WHILE RECALLED MEAT IS
SERVED TO CHILDREN IN
Democrats Continue to Neglect Children and the
Major Issues in Annapolis
What better way to follow up novelty legislation, than to hang out on social networking site Facebook? The Gazette
has a prominent puff piece today on local legislators who are active on Facebook, including our own Democratic delegates, William A. Bronrott and "The Gambler," C. William Frick.
This would not be noteworthy, had our delegates been working hard on the major issues in Annapolis. But they have ignored those issues, as usual, and Facebook appears to be their new way to kill time on the taxpayer's dime. We didn't send these legislators to Annapolis, and pay them $150,000 in taxpayer money, to have a vacation.
Once again, children's issues have been entirely ignored by our Democratic delegates, who have introduced legislation to make walking the state exercise, to make taxpayers pay for their campaigns, and to ban "texting" while driving. Nothing has been done on early childhood education and nutrition, domestic violence and abuse, dangerous and toxic portable classrooms in our public schools, and now the serving of recalled meat in Montgomery County public school lunchrooms.
It's outrageous. Food safety is increasingly a critical issue in America, and Annapolis has avoided it altogether. Now the lack of leadership has come home to your children's school cafeteria.
Our radical delegates and county councilmembers have acted as food police at a loud volume over the last year and two months. Now it turns out that George Leventhal, Bronrott, Frick, Lee, and Co. have presided over the largest and most unprecedented food safety scandal in Montgomery County public school history.
For shame, for shame. As I have always said - priorities and values, priorities and values. Isn't it time you had elected officials who share yours?
FORGET OBAMA AND PATRICK:
VAN HOLLEN QUOTES ROBERT DYER
Speaking of my phrase, "priorities and values," Congressman Chris Van Hollen recently stole my line when he spoke about the District 1 congressional race. Interestingly, Mr. Van Hollen was in the crowd one of the times I said this, at a 2006 candidate forum in Glen Echo. As in, "Isn't it time you had a delegate who shares your priorities and values?"
Mr. Van Hollen, if you need any more material, call me.
FINALLY, SOMEONE ELSE IS
ON BOARD FOR
RAIL SERVICE TO
Republican Delegate Introduces Ambitious
Legislation to Connect Capital with D.C., Charm City
Ron George, a Republican delegate from Anne Arundel County, has introduced long-overdue legislation to study rail lines to Annapolis from Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.
If I had been elected in 2006, I would be signing on to this bill if I hadn't introduced it myself already.
I've pointed out many times that Maryland is virtually the only state in the union without rail service to its capital. It's outrageous. And these are just some of the rail lines that we need to build to bring our transportation system into the 21st century.
