Kamenetz's opposition is reason to support Vicki Almond [Letter]

The article "Kamenetz and developer funding chest for campaigns" (May 21) made it clear that County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and the moneyed development interests that support him want Councilwoman Vicki Almond out of office because she does not automatically do what they want her to do. They have contributed obscene amounts of money to defeat her because she votes for what she thinks is best for her constituents and Baltimore County. I am proud that she has questioned the administration's actions on labor issues and sweetheart deals for developers. We cannot allow her to be punished for that.

The voters in the Second Councilmanic District (Pikesville, Owings Mills, Reisterstown and Ruxton Ridge) should recognize and support Councilwoman's Almond's independence and thoughtful actions as the very reason she must be re-elected.

Thank you for disclosing Councilwoman Almond's independence and the special interests that oppose her for it. Now the voters have to prove that their votes on election day can be more powerful than the money spent against them.

Howard J. Needle
