First and foremost Mr. Andoh,

I take delight and pleasure in standing up for change and for what's right. I find your arguments against the proponents of Proposition H quite interesting. On one hand, you call the proponents of the Amendment "big moneyed interests", yet you point out that PG County Education Assosciation is supporting the measure. So are the teachers in the pockets of the big developers or have they been bamboozled with dreams of sugar plums and classrooms?

The opponents of this measure point out that this is the work of moneyed interests and call those supporting this matter are enganged in misinformation forget that the current County Council has become a haven of cronyism. I don't mind the Legislature pulling the Executive on the mat, but the fact is that when the Chairman of the Council is a member of the Governing Board that the County Council makes laws that affect it. So this principled stand is all dog and no bark.

It is time to end the cronyism and parrochialism of the County Council of the past. I'm proudly supporting Proposition H as it is time to break the grasp of the Gang of Six and have a County Council that responds to the needs of all the citizenship in PG County, not the narrow interests of each district.
