Of­fi­cials voted too quickly on wa­ter­shed con­ser­va­tion dis­trict

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum - Jerry Feith, White Plains

On June 6 at 2:30 p.m., the Charles County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers voted on the wa­ter­shed con­ser­va­tion dis­trict is­sue. Com­mis­sioner Ken Robin­son (D) sub­mit­ted an amend­ment to the WCD. The com­mis­sion­ers ap­proved the amend­ment 3-2 with com­mis­sion­ers De­bra Davis (D) and Bobby Rucci (D) vot­ing no.

The com­mis­sion­ers should have held an­other meet­ing to give the ci­ti­zens an op­por­tu­nity to ad­dress Mr. Robin­son’s amend­ment. Rather than con­duct­ing a ses­sion to give the peo­ple an op­por­tu­nity to give their opin­ion, the com­mis­sion­ers voted 3-2 to ap­prove the WCD.

It is my opin­ion that the vote is in­valid, so the WCD can­not be im­ple­mented.

This be­hav­ior is an­other ex­am­ple that lib­er­al­ism is a men­tal dis­or­der by Com­mis­sion­ers’ Pe­ter Mur­phy (D), Com­mis­sion­ers’ Vice Pres­i­dent Amanda Ste­wart (D) and Mr. Robin­son. Forg­ing ahead on [an in­valid] vote makes all of the Charles County tax­pay­ers look fool­ish and places an­other cloud over peo­ple’s prop­erty rights.
