In choosing a Howard County council candidate to support in the June 24 primary, I want to be sure the next council person from District 1 has the right experience to protect the interests of senior citizens such as myself ("2014 primary cheat sheet: all the Howard County candidates in one place," May 29).
We need someone who will make sure that our neighborhoods continue to thrive as we age in place, that development projects are thoughtfully planned and implemented with community input and that seniors don't have additional tax burdens.
Wendy Royalty has worked in local government as well as non-profits and has been a social worker helping aging populations. She will do the best job for seniors and deserves our support June 24.
