Recent Prince George's County News (15 Apr 2011)

Public Safety
2011 Maryland General Assembly
  • Gazette: (B.Lee): 2011 session will be remembered as the "almost" session for all the half-steps and non-steps it took. http://is.gd/6KpulC 
  • Gazette (B.Lee): Assembly almost passed meaningful PG ethics reform, but instead put a cap on time for shakedown period http://is.gd/6KpulC 
  • Gazette (B.Rascovar): O'Malley's sleek ideas veer off road; On a scale of 1 to 10, give him a 3. http://is.gd/h9PGpP 
  • mdreporter State Roundup: Recap of General Assembly finale, winners and losers; Miller won’t talk about retirement. http://bit.ly/dGbnz2 
  • Budget and Taxes:
Government and Politics
  • pgcpsparents PGCPS at it again, airing a BOE meeting that took place in the afternoon on a late Friday night. 
    • During the BOE mtg,there was a discussion on public comment and the amount of time alloted to make a statement 
    • I agree with Mr. Cahn, who pointed out that to cut people off in mid statement is very disrespectful. 
    • one BOE member stated that there are school districts that do not have public comment but as typical of this board no mention of which 
    • I think it is time for a new discussion regarding budget and overall relationships with the public
    • I wonder to what extent does the BOE really want the public involved their actions would suggest not. They need real community outreach 
    • Something they have not had in the system for nearly a year. The PGCPS system needs real community outreach. It is time to include parents 
    • I will attempt to watch the re-broadcast of the meeting, if they ever air it again.
    • at least they voted down a policy that requried public comments to be provided within three hours of any BOE meeting
