That I’m not running in 2018 for another office if the Howard County electorate decides to select me for the Board of Education.
Remember this? It’s still true!
Yes, as a member of the Town Center Village Board, I have been very engaged in the Downtown Columbia discussions. (Tonight, our Board will testify AGAINST the increase in density and the Administration’s plan.) The 2010 plan had 5,500 units and the idea that 900 additional units won’t be counted toward density because they’re affordable sets a dangerous precedent for the county. It’s like not counting Pre-K toward elementary school capacity…
But I continue to hear from people that I am running for the County Council District 4 seat, which will become vacant in 2018. That Board of Education is just a stepping stone that I’m using. That being a political animal I really won’t be satisfied with the Board.
One day maybe I will run for County Council. But when people tell you I am running in 2018, ask yourself why they’re telling you that rumor/lie. And please tell them, stop saying it.
