O'Malley's bay cleanup photo op

August 26, 2010

Your article, "Military urged to boost bay cleanup" (Aug. 26), is just another photo op for Gov. Martin O'Malley to continue to blow smoke.

I tried to participate in the nitrogen reducing septic system program last year. I submitted all the forms and heard nothing. When I called back they said the process for filing had changed. I resubmitted and heard nothing. I called back and they were out of money.

The funding stopped, because Mr. O'Malley took the money from the fund to use in the general fund.

Now the state has turned it over to the counties.

What a joke, to have funds for a program to help better the bay go to the general fund and now Mr. O'Malley seeks another photo op to appear he is actually doing something.
