Vote for Bel Air Town Commissioner

7 November 2017

Dear daughter, who has attended and spoken at several Town Hall meetings, took the initiative to write to the candidates running in the 2017 election for Town Commissioner.

She is a model citizen, and I wish she could vote.  Four more years till she can.

Based on responses received and our experience attending town hall meetings, I have decided to vote for Patrick Richards, an incumbent, who has spelled out his goals in a letter to the Aegis, and Amy G. Chmielewski, who is a newcomer.  Both have expressed interest in sustainability, walkability, water resources as well as other issues.  We also asked the candidates about issues such as climate change and discrimination and the responses of these two candidates reflected somewhat greater maturity than the other two.

It is not a lot to go on, but this vote certainly matters and I thought it important to share what I learned and how I was voting.
