Editorial from the Aegis | June 12, 2014
It's been more than a decade since all the voters of the county could vote for all the members of the county council. A key argument in favor of switching from countywide to in-district selection of county council members was that the smaller districts would allow for more grassroots campaigns. Rather than have to get a message out to a county of 250,000 — the theory went — candidates in a particular district would only have to reach about 41,500 people. Actually, the number of people needing to be contacted is even smaller than that as each district has roughly 27,500 registered voters.

The following was sent to Harford County Council President Billy Boniface. A copy was provided for publication. At the June 04, 2014 regular membership meeting of the New Harford Democratic Club, Bills 14-21 and 14-18 were studied and discussed. By a unanimous vote, we agreed to oppose the passages of both of these ordinances. Bill 14-21 is a seriously misguided and ham-handed attempt to eliminate the rights of citizens and communities to access their elected officials and seek redress on zoning issues.

Editor: Friends of Harford strongly opposes Bill 14-21, the Charter Amendment to eliminate both the County Council serving as the Board of Appeals and the Board of Appeals itself. Under this bill, appeals of Zoning decisions made by the Hearing Examiner could only be made to the Maryland Circuit Court, making Harford County the only county in Maryland without a Board of Appeals. Under the current county charter, the Council sets the zoning law (Master Plan and Zoning Code) and oversees and approves all changes, including Comprehensive Rezoning, Special Exceptions, etc. Now our elected officials want to pull back from any individual case where they might have to make a real  decision. And the change is worse than that.
