Meet Sam Georgiou
Pharmacy Manager. Long-time resident of Anne Arundel County. Involved in more Civic and Community Groups that you can shake a stick at. And long-time interest in Public Education: member of the School Board Nominating Convention, Chairman of the Citizens Advisory Council, member of the Meade Area Redistricting Task Force, Member of the Maryland Department of Education Parent Advisory Council, etc. Sam Georgiou is just the kind of person you’d want to cast a vote for in an election for in an election to be a member of a School Board.
Except he lives in District 32. Instead of appointed someone with a long and varied background in community and school system issues, Governor O’Malley appointed insider Democratic lobbyist Teresa Milio Birge to the seat. Instead of appointing somebody with Georgiou’s experience and credentials in public school policy, O’Malley appointed a Democratic crony instead.
Is there really any better argument for an elected School Board for Anne Arundel County than this?
