It’s Economic Development Week in Maryland. This column could be about economic policy, taxes and budgets. But it’s not. This is about what I believe makes a place, and its economy, thrive.     

A place to live and a place to work.

A place where education is the most important commodity.

A place that respects every resident and welcomes newcomers and visitors.

A place that listens to business needs and neighborhood needs.

A place that is affordable and growing.

A place where entrepreneurs find kindred spirits.

A place where artists and scientists are valued.

A place that treasures green spaces and waterways.

A place where heroes volunteer and corporations give back.

A place that is easy to call home.

More than 830,000 people and 21,000 businesses call Baltimore County home. That’s my definition of prosperity.
