Dundalk voters: Ignore party in the County Council election [Letter]

Recently I had the pleasure of attending the Baltimore County Council debate hosted by the League of Women Voters between Joe DiCara and Todd Crandell at the North Point Library and returned with some thoughts for voters this year ("Republicans see opportunity in Dundalk area council race," Aug. 30).

Please do not vote for a person just because of their political party. For a local election such as County Council, party affiliation really does not matter. During this debate, each candidate will say they want jobs, increased public safety, better education, etc. The difference between the candidates is how they will achieve these goals.

Mr. Crandell gave specific plans and examples of what he wants to accomplish, such as forming a grant-seeking committee for the community. Mr. Crandell also has a plan to pair students with major employers while they are still in school so they are provided with job training and possibly a job after completing high school.

Mr. DiCara gave only the usual politician responses, such as "I want to listen to and work with the people," and "I would work with businesses to bring them to the area." He never expressed his plan to actually accomplish these projects.

In fact, Mr. DiCara seemed bothered by the major issues in the community right now, saying that the North Point Government Center issue and the rain tax are "done deals."

That does not seem like a candidate who will listen to and work with the community.
