In reply, Howard Johnson, community association president, added, "This is great news and a big positive for Elkridge and truly reflects the hard work and team effort of our membership and the local government collective that represented our concerns in Annapolis. I'd also like to offer special thanks to resident committee members Drew Roth, Mitch Buckman, Pam Bertrand, Chuck Menk, Val McGuire, Gail Segil, and Robyn Winder. In addition, all the residents who attended meetings and open forums, or sent letters to our key decision makers in Maryland. And, I agree with Courtney, we must stay vigilant to the end, but this is a great battle victory for Elkridge. Thank you all for your continued work in our community and all you do for Elkridge."
