Marks' work on County Council redistricting, other issues appreciated by Riderwood Hills


October 05, 2011

On behalf of the Riderwood Hills Community Association, I would like to thank Councilman David Marks for his close consultation with our neighborhood during the recent County Council redistricting.

Much has been written in the Towson Times about the removal of part of east Towson from the 5th District.

For the 5th District to retain this area, it would have required splitting off another part of the district.

Riderwood Hills was on the chopping block. Our association is grateful that Councilman Marks and his colleagues did not impulsively make this unfair, last-minute change.

I would also like to address, as an individual, Mr. David Kosak's harsh comments in the Towson Times. ("Council vote cuts Loch Hill, Glendale-Glenmont from 5th District in Towson.")

I obtained permission from my community association when making my earlier comment. Did Mr. Kosak speak on behalf of the Greater Towson Council of Community Associations when he said that Towson must have a local representative? Did the GTCCA approve of such incendiary language?

As a proud Democrat and Towson resident, I am very thankful for all the hard work that Councilman Marks has shown on behalf of Towson, even though he does not live in Towson.

Councilman Marks does not need to grovel before Mr. Kosak with an apology or an explanation. All he needs is do his best, which I believe he has in a difficult situation.

Trish Mayhugh, president, Riderwood Hills Community Association
