    August break over, meeting Monday

    I hope you have had a pleasant summer! You may have noticed that I’ve been quiet the past few weeks. That’s because the Council had an August recess, and I took advantage of that by taking a much needed vacation to Hawaii for a few weeks. I apologize if any of your emails have gone unanswered (I’m still catching up), but I pledge that I will return all of the messages I’ve received. Now I’m rested, recharged, and ready to get back to work for Ward 7! 

    Of particular note I want to let everyone know that one of my keystone ordinances is up for a public hearing on Monday: the effort to create an Annapolis Department of the Environment (at no cost).

    Council update for 7/22, Ward 7 party at Back Creek

    We have two Council meetings left this month until our recess for the month of August. The first meeting, on Monday, has a number of pieces of legislation up for a vote. The next is on the afternoon of the 31st, and I believe the only thing we will be doing that that meeting is voting to confirm the nominated Police Chief, but I’m not entirely sure what’s on that agenda yet. On the same day, from 6-9 is our first (hopefully annual) Ward 7 community picnic/party. More on that below.
