MONDAY News: PGCo, did you know… (Demo)

Gov. O’Malley announces MD State Dept. of Housing moving to PGCo, Young Dems of MD hold District 6 candidate forum *crickets*, Economic Development efforts paying off for County, Virginia Historical Society produces “Unknown No More,” a database of names of enslaved Virginians, Council Chair/Co-chair propose we audit AFTER you leave office  

“Governor Martin O’Malley, joined by Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, state and local officials and community leaders, officially launched the process to move the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) into Prince George’s County.  Relocating the 330+ employee agency to Prince George’s County serves as a milestone in the Governor’s transit-oriented development vision for state agencies.”

Young Democrats holds a candidate forum for District 6 Council seat and the audience was almost outnumbered by the candidates.

County Exec. Baker and the Prince George’s Development Corp. are doing outreach and assisting with permits, obtaining financing so that companies with come to the County or not leave the County. 

  • It’s a good look.  Now to the taxes…

 “Unknown No Longer does not contain names that may appear in published sources at the VHS or in unpublished sources located in repositories other than the VHS. On the other hand, those whose names appear in the database need not have lived their lives solely in Virginia, for our collections contain plantation records, for example, kept by Virginians who moved to other states, taking their slaves with them. In addition, if we know that an individual named in a post-Civil War document had been enslaved before 1865, his or her name will appear in the database.”

Council Chair Ingrid Turner D-Bowie and Vice Chair Eric Olson D-College Park propose legislation to audit County Exec and Council Members AFTER they leave office

  • How about we audit you WHILE you’re in office?  How about that?
