Gre­gory has fought for Ce­cil for years

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

FROM: STEPHEN ENG­LAND RIS­ING SUN

I’ve known Jackie Gre­gory for quite a num­ber of years now, back to early 2010 when I first be­came ac­quainted with her work as part of the steer­ing com­mit­tee for the Ce­cil County Pa­tri­ots.

Jackie isn’t some­one who just ap­peared out of nowhere to run for of­fice, as we’ve seen from so many politi­cians in the past. She’s been here all along, work­ing tire­lessly on the be­half of her fel­low res­i­dents on is­sues rang­ing from the Sec­ond Amend- ment to prop­erty rights, where she was among the first to cham­pion the tier map plan later im­ple­mented by our county ex­ec­u­tive. A plan which suc­cess­fully de­fended landown­ers in the county from the puni­tive re­zon­ing or­di­nances pushed for­ward by the ad­min­is­tra­tion of then-Gov. Martin O’Mal­ley.

She has helped or­ga­nize ben­e­fits for lo­cal vet­er­ans and brought elected of­fi­cials and their views to ac­count be­fore the peo­ple in mul­ti­ple can­di­date fo­rums in past elec­tions. I have come to know Jackie Gre­gory as a fear­less ac­tivist for both con­ser­va­tive prin­ci­ples and the citizens of this county, with a com­mand of the is­sues fac­ing our area that is matched by few I know.

And that is why I am proud to be sup­port­ing her in the race for Ce­cil County Coun­cil.
