Delegate Liz Bobo’s initiative to secure a $250,000 state grant for the restoration and redevelopment of Symphony Woods in Columbia Town Center was successful. The bond request survived the bickering between the Maryland State Senate and the House of Delegates and was granted in full at the end of the session.
Bobo brought home the bacon.
While I do have a problem with this type of pork barrel spending, particularly when it goes to a private homeowners association, I’m glad that at least some of the money we send down to Annapolis is coming back to HoCo.
I suppose I should hand out a carrot to Mr. Ed for his efforts on this initiative too.
