As a young man and as a father I spent many hours canoeing Deer Creek and the Susquehanna, sailing on the Bay, hiking in our parks, and biking. I take great pride in the part I played over my years of public service in acquiring and improving our hiking trails, parks & recreation facilities, sidewalks, and open spaces. My commitment to maintaining our quality of life remains steadfast.
Harford County must continue to invest in the sustainment, acquisition, and improvement of our public spaces. Our quality of life is greatly influenced by our County development plans. We do not need to choose between economic success and our environmental health. Both are vital and mutually achievable if we are innovative and grow intelligently and honestly.
