Says We Must Work Together on Complex Issues for the Good of the Region

Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler released the following statement in response to efforts to limit bus and light rail service between Baltimore City and Baltimore County:

"I will inform the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) that I do not support any effort to limit bus and light rail service from Baltimore City to the County. While I understand the frustration that was caused by a recent disruption at White Marsh Mall, stigmatizing and creating hardship for City residents is not an acceptable response. It is 2018. Not 1950. We are neighbors with Baltimore City and stand with them. We cannot and should not put a moat around our City partners. We must continue to work together on complex issues for the good of the Baltimore region."
 


County Executive Says Visits to Cultural Institutions are an Important Part of a Student’s Education

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz issued the following statement today regarding Carroll County’s decision to cancel student field trips to Baltimore City:

Carroll County’s decision to cancel all field trips to Baltimore City is a disservice to its students, Baltimore’s cultural and arts institutions, and to the citizens of the City of Baltimore.  This is a very challenging time for our region, when neighbors need to support each other.  I am proud that Baltimore County public school students visited these institutions 172,000 times last year and continue to benefit each year from the educational enrichment offered by Baltimore’s venerable cultural and arts institutions.  These visits continue to take place without incident.  As Plato observed, “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
