Instead of lowering taxes for some, Larry Hogan should make Maryland better for all | READER COMMENTARY

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan holds a news conference to promote a proposed tax cut for retirees that he's failed to get through the legislature before. He's joined at the Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020 press conference by his budget secretary, David Brinkley, at right.

Does every person who seeks election have to promote lower taxes to be elected (“Maryland Gov. Hogan wants to cut income tax for retirees, calling it the largest tax cut in two decades,” Jan. 16)? Instead, why can’t Gov. Larry Hogan just put forth a plan that would make life more livable in Maryland? Maybe take the tax money and promote more public transportation for retirees, safer streets with better lighting and traffic safe streets with better street signs and visible traffic lane lines with fresh painting. He might provide discounted membership in health clubs for seniors, more public announcements to watch out for seniors and children or the dangers of texting and driving and create more meeting areas accessible to adults.

Let the state take over the Jones Falls Expressway. Whatever happened to using public airways to support important messages for health, safety and welfare? I could go on. Keep your tax money, Governor Hogan, and get to work.
