Chesapeake band to cap off concert series

 Lee Hager, a board member of the Woman's Club of Perry Hall, is pleased to share news of the final concert of the year in the eleventh Perry Hall Community Concert Series. A Free September Concert featuring the music of the Chesapeake Concert Band takes place Sunday, Sept. 18, at 7 p.m. at the Perry Hall High School auditorium, 4601 Ebenezer Road. Admission is free and open to the public.

"We are so pleased to be back at the Perry Hall High School auditorium. We haven't been able to get there this spring and summer due to much needed repairs on the high school building," Hager said. "I would like to see the audience size increase. Everyone is welcome to attend and we look forward to meeting the people of Perry Hall, White Marsh and all the other communities." 

The concert series is sponsored by the Perry Hall Recreation & Parks Council and the Greater Perry Hall Community Alliance. The Greater Perry Hall Community Alliance consists of six board members, three from the Perry Hall Improvement Association and three from the Woman's Club.

Bruce Robinson, immediate past minority party substitute member of the Baltimore County Board of Elections, was designated as a certified elections/registration administrator, the highest professional achievement for an election official, in ceremonies conducted by the Election Center (National Association of Election Officials) in San Antonio on Aug. 19.

"Mr. Robinson is the first, and only, appointed member of a local Board of Elections in Maryland to achieve this certification. Obtaining and maintaining CERA status means that he has committed to a career-long process of continuing education to improve the electoral process in Maryland and the nation," said Doug Lewis, director of the Election Center.

"This is one of the most challenging education programs I have ever participated in, said Robinson, an elections official for five years. " We covered the law, and ethical considerations in how to better serve the public.  We also became more aware of how important it is to nurture and care for the democratic process."

As for his role as an election official, Robinson said, "I see my role to dignify all potential voters and to remove as many barriers as possible to participation in the democratic process.  The local boards cannot be responsible for how many actually turn out for each election, but they can certainly be sure that citizens have the opportunity to vote and have their votes counted accurately."

Robinson is the former executive director of the Judith P. Ritchey Youth Services Center. He also served as the driver instructional services division manager for the Motor Vehicle Administration. In addition to work in the local community, Robinson was appointed to the Study Commission on Public Funding of Political Campaigns in Maryland in 2003. He lives with his wife in the Nottingham area of Baltimore County.
