Are Abell’s theatrics undermining the effectivness of the BoE?

One has to wonder if BoE member Jennifer Abell used the Hawkins Gate Road parents in an attempt to make fellow board members Wise, Pedersen, and Cook look bad? Its no secret that there has been bad blood between Abell and Wise since the campaign last fall. Wanna bet we’ll see some LTEs in tomorrow’s Indy?

O’Malley Considers Gas Tax Increase to Raise Revenue

WashIngton Post

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said yesterday that he is weighing an increase in the state’s gasoline tax and other options to help pay for billions of dollars in transportation projects that the state could not otherwise afford in coming years.

O’Malley (D) said that state transportation officials have advised him that an additional $400 million to $600 million a year in revenue will be needed to keep pace with the state’s needs during the next two decades, including a proposed light-rail Metro line connecting Bethesda and New Carrollton and light rail or bus service along part of the Interstate 270 corridor.

Pr. George’s May Face Battle Over Higher Phone Tax

Washington Post

Prince George’s County leaders have faced some of the nation’s toughest restrictions on raising taxes since a referendum more than 10 years ago gave voters the right to reject increases at the ballot box.

But County Executive Jack B. Johnson (D) thinks he’s found one tax he and the County Council could raise without a referendum: a fee on telephone service. In his budget proposal for next year, he has proposed a 3 percentage point increase.
