This continues the topic from our last column regarding the town hall meeting held at the North Point Library. It was virtually impossible to cover all of the important issues in just one column.
With that said, we continue to bring information about the exchanges from the meeting to our readers. Below you will find another clip of interaction regarding two important issues issues; one dealing with Section 8 housing, and the other dealing with The Dundalk Renaissance Corporation (DRC).
The rules of the town hall required all points from the public to be written on a postcard ahead of the meeting. However, as you will see in the video, the topic was introduced via a straightforward statement from a member of the group Leaders Helping Leaders, Community President Dave Patro of North Point Village, who pointed out some very interesting figures on the Section 8 issue impacting the entire district.
One of Councilman Todd Crandell’s projects on Merritt Boulevard.
The next issue was introduced by another LHL member, Scott Pappas, who made some very interesting observations about the Dundalk Renaissance Corporation receiving millions of dollars in funding from the state legislators; that funding is funneled through Councilman Todd Crandell’s office directly to the DRC.
Mr. Pappas’ questioned why the DRC controls millions of dollars to enhance the district while other community associations lack any funding. At a later date, the Post will take a look at the DRC, its funding, and its leadership.
We present the video below to show the exact exchange between the politicians and the voters who those politicians are supposed to represent.
The video is not long, but provides a lot of insight regarding how your elected officials respond to their constituents’ needs.
As always, “You read; you decide.”
The next column about this very important town hall meeting will shine a spotlight on Democratic Baltimore County Council Candidate Brian Weir as he unveils some very profound information about Baltimore County Administrator Fred Homan and his back door deal with private contractors to take over our ballfields.
Wait until you hear what Mr. Weir has to say.
So don’t touch that dial, flip that page, or click that mouse as the Post continues to inform our readers of the political machinery controlling YOUR tax dollars.
