I am a big fan of Gov. Larry Hogan, as he is a fiscal conservative like me. I cringe when we spend state money to build such things as arenas and stadiums which at least can be justified when they are for the benefit of most citizens of the state — even when it profits some rich sports team owner.
Sorry, I can’t see overpaying just so Amazon shareholders can prosper. Montgomery County is already overcrowded enough as evidenced by the huge amount it is going to cost to add even more lanes to Interstate 270 even if they are toll lanes.
