I have been a Freedom area resident since my family moved from Baltimore County in 1996. My family's reasons for moving at the time were twofold; better schools and less congestion. I'm a proud 2004 graduate of Liberty High School, and although I spent some years away attending college, these two reasons are also why I have decided to start my adult life along with my wife, Claire, in the Freedom area. In fact, we just recently purchased our second home within the district, moving into the Sherlock Holmes community from Carroll Highlands. Soon after moving into our new home, we began to hear grumblings about the impending land-use revisions. I am steadfast in my opposition to these changes.
