Dissent over the latest Harford County appropriations for parkland appear motivated by political gamesmanship in this election year, rather than actual concern for public recreational opportunities. Be it a grouping of properties associated with the waterfront, a building of some historic import in Bel Air, a soccer field in Aberdeen or a swimming pool facility in Joppa, there are good reasons for local governments to purchase land for parks and recreation facilities across Harford County - and, sometimes, not so good ones.

His father is the school's athletic director, according to ESPN.
