I am disappointed that Councilman Marks cannot attend. He represents the largest portion of Carney. He assured me he will have a representative attending. At least that is something.

Forgot to say that I am looking forward to seeing Councilman Huff and Councilwoman Bevins as they also represent parts of Carney.

I still can't believe that Councilwoman Bevins will not give any commitment on the East Avenue Decision... Everyone can agree that they wouldn't want them in their backyards yet they can't commit to not letting them into mine. So disappointing...

I am hopeful that Councilwoman Bevins is someone who will make her decision as if she lived on East Avenue. I will go and testify as CIA president on behalf of the East Avenue Residents. I am sure that Ruth Baisden will do the same as GPCC president. There is no way that any decision to change the zoning for the .72 acre buffer to BM could be made in good conscience. Citizens in older communities should not have to fight over and over again for what is expected in newer developments in Baltimore County.

I appreciate all that you and Ruth have done from the residents of East Avenue, your continued commitment on this issue has been wonderful.
