I am so pleased to share that not only have we secured funding in the budget to construct a new senior center for northern Baltimore County, funds have also been secured to construct turf fields off of Belfast Road!

These are two long sought and long needed projects for this area of the district, and I wish to extend my deepest appreciation to the County Executive for recognizing the tremendous need here.

I’ll have more to say concerning the rest of the budget (particularly BCPS and school construction) as the Council begins its review, but wanted to share some of the top line good news for our District from it.

Expanding recreational opportunities for our young and young at heart is a major priority for me. These two projects go a long way to advance this goal.
