In this upcoming election, I am supporting Courtney Watson for Howard County Executive and the Brown-Ulman ticket for governor/lieutenant governor. Courtney has demonstrated her knowledge of what it takes to run a business, listen to the needs of our citizens and take the tough steps to preserve and restore our open spaces, our communities, our air, farm lands, and our water. She has clearly demonstrated the talents needed to work through these tough decisions for the benefit of all.
