Kudos to Baltimore County Council members Vicki Almond and David Marks. They are the kind of public servants who live up to their titles. Ms. Almond is a proponent of preventing the greedy political hacks in Baltimore County's governing board from double-dipping, and Mr. Marks through sheer will and determination has listened to the desires of the people and altered the development of the Towson Gateway corner. I hope they proceed to move up the political ladder and continue to do the real work that the communities and taxpayers of Baltimore county need. Our current county executive knows how to schmooze with developers and builders and vote to collect for himself and his buddies severance on top of pension payments but somehow can't get the roads paved or the bike lanes highlighted and protected. The shoulders of the roads are never swept so it makes biking there dangerous. Council Chairman Tom Quirk should stay in Catonsville and try to solve the burgeoning crime problem, instead of working as a shill and sycophant for County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. They are the opposite of what public servants should be.
