Finally, Our Voices Will Be Heard About Section 8 And Its Impact On Dundalk

Local politicians set up meeting at North Point Library to deal with issues.

I have been writing about this for years and even ran a political campaign on the issues and lost.  That did not deter me from continuing to voice my concerns over the issues.

Steve Mattrazzo, a columnist for The Dundalk Eagle, wrote the following concerning the conditions in Dundalk:  “And what do we have now? The closure of the steel mill and the overall decline in the local economy, and all of the travails that come with prolonged downturn – crime, substance abuse, trash, rats, vacant buildings falling into disrepair – creeping ever further into regularity”.

In response to not only our two voices but many others as well, we finally are being heard.  I will let the letter from our political leaders do the talking.   If you care and want to have your voice heard make sure you’re there Wednesday, January 23rd from 6-8 p.m. in the meeting room at the North Point Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library located in the Merrit Park Shopping Center.

The meeting deals with HOME (Housing Opportunities Made Equal) Act, or as many of know it, Section 8.

Please read the PDF file for a complete copy of the letter.

"Statins (heart meds) are causing havoc with cognitive skills." I've already RSVP'ed. This should be funny. Is it too late too have a Pointy Hat table?

This should be epic. Didn't you guys learn anything from Depazzo's Defeat? Was Fat Pat invited?

LOL I guess the RSVP list is getting longer. Why RSVP for a public meeting anyway?
