Sorry folks, but this column will not talking about The Weather Channel’s program titled Highway Thru Hell, but something right in the heart of the evil empire, otherwise known as the seat of Baltimore County Government.
By the way, you happen to be looking at Bosley Avenue, which leads right to the courthouse in Towson. One resident told us that this road has been in such a state for years.
We’ll get to that in a moment. Before we do, let’s review the issues regarding the complete and utter decline of the infrastructure of Baltimore County.
Some might call it a catastrophe.
In this one recent column, the Post addressed some of those issues.

Maybe we are all on the same wavelength when it comes to these issues because, Believe It or Not (Ripley’s famous TV show), while this column was being written, we received some rather interesting photographs and information. That came from the Colgate Community Association, which is also part of the fast-growing activist group, Leaders Helping Leaders.
The CCA said the issues depicted have been caused by a failing sewer system in Baltimore County. The Post was advised the situation has been ongoing and may lead to as many as 200 homes or more without water service. What is even more disturbing is this was revealed as far back as 2014.
During a walk around to view the problem with Councilman Todd Crandell and members of the Baltimore County Police Department, the councilman made the following comment: “The county won’t have funds to fix this.” According to the CCA, that comment was made April 5, 2015.
Since that time, numerous attempts to to receive any information from Councilman Crandell’s office have been for naught. One member of the community took the words right out of our keyboard: All CCA gets is the automatic reply of, “We will be in touch.”
That just never happens, folks.
You will need your water wings for this ride.
Now that you have viewed the collapsed roadways in the heart of Towson, as well as other areas, you should join us in questioning members of the county council—Todd Crandell, Cathy Bevins, Vicki Almond, Julian Jones (“If it’s good enough for Fred Homan, it’s good enough for me”) and Tom Quirk. We should all be asking the council members: what is more important, the citizens you swore an oath to represent, or the developers who line your pockets with campaign contributions>
Folks, when you go to vote in the midterm elections coming up, please remember who has supported the public over their own campaigns. Only the few and the brave actually deserve reelection.
