The environment is everyone’s responsibility.
As your Delegate, I will work to save open spaces and prime agricultural land in northern Baltimore County. We also need to live up to our commitments to Chesapeake bay. I support common sense solutions, such as upgrading wastewater and sewage treatment plants to improve the health of the Bay.
I will also promote the production of alternative energies. For example, we have more than a 1000 acres of paved parking lots and 447 acres of commercial buildings in District 42B. If we put solar panels on 20% of this developed commercial property, we can generate enough electricity to power 10,000 homes—roughly 50% of our district. We can come up with creative solutions through use of tax credits and public-private partnerships to save our prime agricultural land and make good use of blacktops to generate renewable energy.
