I live in Howard County, it's one of the wealthiest area's in the nation. It's been voted one of the best places to meet a geek and to live. (I like geeks, they are my people, so being able to meet a geek would naturally make it a great place to live)
However not all places in HOCO are created equal. I live in the "not as rich" part of the county.
A few weeks ago they started to fix the very old water main under our roads. Now I realize that construction is going on and things won't be pretty. However, my concern is more about what will happen when the construction is over, and what will happen to our roads.
I know it's asking a lot to repave the road when construction is complete. It will be expensive and a burden on the tax payers. I too, am a tax payer, I've lived in Howard County for ten years now. I know all of the money is spent in Columbia, and I know Elkridge has the misfortune of being on the "wrong side of 95" but still, I'm a member of this community too. I know how I feel when I drive down a road that hasn't been cared for.
It makes me feel worthless, like my home, my neighborhood isn't valued.
So Ken Ulman and all the people who are in charge, will you fix my road? Thank you.
