Efficiency but not much vision in Balto. Co.
Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's plan to offer some county properties for sale in Dundalk, Randallstown and Towson has the potential to solve a few problems and create better opportunities for some students without any cost to the taxpayers, though it also has the potential to create some new problems, too. As such, it is a perfect example of the strengths and weaknesses of Baltimore County government. If your main concern is efficiency and tight stewardship of taxpayer dollars, you'll be happy. If you're looking for a bold vision, not so much. The question is not whether Mr. Kamenetz's plan is a good idea — in general, it is — but whether it is sufficient.
