Letter: Del. Turner defends vote in favor of expanded gambling
I have voted my conscience on most legislation throughout the years I have served in Annapolis. For example, I voted against deregulation of our utilities, against giving the Marriott Corp. $44 million to stay in Maryland, against the returning of $1 billion surplus and then passing a $1.3 billion Thornton enhancement bill for education, against the Inter County Connector that was scheduled to cost $7.50 one way from Laurel to Gaithersburg and which has driven up tolls throughout Maryland and created a $1.3 billion bond obligation for the state, against turning Blue Cross-Blue Shield into a for-profit company and on and on. I will continue my independent positions as I evaluate each bill on its merits.
