Com­mis­sioner no show at cel­e­bra­tion a dis­grace

Record Observer - - Opinion -

This let­ter was sent to the Queen Anne’s County Com­mis­sion­ers with a copy to the news­pa­per for pub­li­ca­tion.

On Satur­day, June 11, I had the priv­i­lege of at­tend­ing the cel­e­bra­tion of the Queen Anne’s Soil Con­ser­va­tion Dis­trict 75th An­niver­sary. They had peo­ple at­tend­ing from all over the State of Mary­land.

A for­mer Dis­trict Con­ser­va­tion­ist trav­eled from Con­necti­cut to at­tend. Gov­er­nor (Larry) Ho­gan, Sen. (Andy) Harris’ of­fice as well as our lo­cal Del­e­ga­tion was in at­ten­dance or they sent a rep­re­sen­ta­tive. Other coun­ties Soil Con­ser­va­tion Dis­tricts came from all over the state. Two for­mer Queen Anne’s County Com­mis­sion­ers also at­tended, but our present county com­mis­sion­ers were no where in at­ten­dance.

Seventy-five years in busi­ness in Queen Anne’s County should have at least some ac­knowl­edge­ment from our elected county com­mis­sion­ers. This cel­e­bra­tion was held close to where two com­mis­sion­ers live. Not even a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from them was in at­ten­dance.

The QASCD not only helps the farm­ers of the county, but they help landown­ers, too, as well as the county gov­ern­ment.

I feel the county com­mis­sion­ers of Queen Anne’s owe the QASCD an ex­pla­na­tion as to why no one at­tended this cel­e­bra­tion since an in­vi­ta­tion had been sent to them in plenty of time.
