Don’t Miss Candidate Night in Gambrills MD

VoteThe Greater Crofton Council (GCC) is sponsoring a Candidate Night for local residents tonight at 7 p.m.  Parking is easy at the Community Center in Villages of Waugh Chapel, and you can grab a quick dinner at Chipotle or Atlanta Bread Company en route between your car and the event.

I learned a great deal from the candidate’s night sponsored by GCC before the recent Primary Election, and even changed my choice of candidate, in some cases.

You should attend the event tonight if you haven’t yet heard the two gentleman running for States Attorney, for example.  That’s an election contest I wouldn’t normally think much about, but Eric Grannon and Frank Weathersbee really caught my attention at the previous Candidate’s Night. 

That’s probably because the repeat offender who stole the car parked in front of my Crofton home was a beneficiary of current policies in the State’s Attorney office.  Did you know that 95% of criminal cases in Anne Arundel County are plea-bargained and that 25% of crimes in our county are committed by repeat offenders?  Those numbers are frighening!  Thank goodness we experienced only a property crime, and not a violent personal crime.

Yet the incumbent’s own word (repeated throughout his presentation) for why he should be re-elected is “entitled” to keep the job he’s held for 22 years.  Personally, I feel like the citizens of this county are the ones who are “entitled” –  entitled to a strong State’s Attorney who is passionate about keeping us safe through convictions and tough sentences.  I walked away from that Candidate Night feeling like criminals and their attorneys will be very unhappy if Eric Granon is elected.

Please take the time to attend tonight’s Candidate Night. You will feel a lot better about your vote if you actually hear your candidates speak.  Elections are too important to take the lazy choice and just vote for the incumbent because you don’t know anything about either candidate. 

Yes, that’s what I’ve done in the past, but I won’t this year!
