Kudos to Carl Councilman Stokes ("Stokes holds up Harbor Point," June 21). I hope the rest of the Baltimore City Council lines up behind him.
Harbor Point should not be developed with a new Exelon Corp. building, let alone one subsidized by taxpayer money.
Exelon has a fine building downtown. Why should ratepayers — we Baltimore Gas and Electric customers who have our rates increased continually — finance a tonier building blocks away from the current one?
Our city badly needs jobs, but not on projects for which we pay triply, through taxes, utilities and environmental costs.
