The exclusion of the esteemed and widely respected Chesapeake Bay Foundation as a potential partner for the Chesapeake Bay Run is truly outrageous and arrogant ("Chesapeake Bay Foundation excluded from bridge run," Nov. 13).
If Sparrow Rogers of Chesapeake Bay Run LLC and K. Hovnanian Homes are going to try to use the beautiful Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the bridge that belongs to the people of Maryland, for political purposes — to browbeat the citizens of Maryland into approving that huge, sprawling development on Kent Island — approval for the event by the Maryland Transportation Authority should be denied!
I hope that Anne Arundel County and Queen Anne's County governments will withhold permits for the Chesapeake Bay Run.
