Dear Friend,

With six months to go until Election Day, I wanted to convey a heartfelt "Thank You!" to all our dedicated supporters, be they donors, volunteers, family or friends. None of our accomplishments would have been possible without you. And while the road ahead is hard and long, I am confident that together we will succeed in restoring common sense government in Annapolis.

Best,

Ed Priola's Signature

SOLVING MARYLAND’S CHRONIC SPENDING CRISIS

By Reforming Our Jurrasic Era Government and Its Waseful Phylosophy of "Tax and Spend"
Spending
We have a structural problem in Maryland, but it isn’t limited to a structural deficit.

Our government was designed for an agrarian age that has long since vanished. We have a weak Legislature that meets for only three months at the beginning of each year, and a Board of Public Works that spends hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in a non-transparent manner the rest of the time. As a result, we have ill informed, part-time legislators more focused on reelection and retirement benefits than on managing government efficiently.

Administratively, we are locked into a labyrinth of: 1) spending mandates; 2) compartmentalized programs; 3) dedicated funding sources; and, 4) an all too evident lack of flexibility in management options.
