Yes, I live in the greatest place in America. My hometown rocks and every place else sucks.
Um, you know what, I'm pretty sure statements like the one above is how wars get started.
So let me rephrase that, Howard County is the Beatles and every place else is Twisted Sister.
Hey, Twisted Sister is pretty cool, they were mentioned in the greatest movie of the 1980's Flight of the Navigator: Compliance.
Back to my point, Howard County is awesome.
Last week I posted a blog about the street I live on.
By 9:45 I received this comment:
Just after the information was tweeted I received this comment:
Are you kidding me? The COUNTY EXECUTIVE'S DEPUTY CHIEF OF STAFF commented on MY BLOG.
So I did email him about the exact street names and so on. He got back to me in the matter of hours.
He said he'd keep me in the loop about the progress of my streets and that he's looking into the problem.
By Monday he emailed me with more information. WOW! Amazing.
Local government at work.
Also there's a website called The Patch and they focus on Hyper Local news. From my super quick research, Howard county has Columbia Patch, Ellicott City Patch, Laurel Patch and Elkridge Patch
For those of you who don't live in Howard County, go check out if your own town has a Patch website.
It's amazing what a little local networking can do and what a huge difference that can be made.
I'll keep you up to date about my road.
