Red Maryland Endorsements: Anne Arundel County Board of Education
For the first time, Anne Arundel County voters will have a say in who sits on the Anne Arundel County Board of Education. After several decades of effort, it’s about time that parents will have the capability of directing the future of county schools and the quality of education that voters receive.
For example, School Board member Julie Hummer recently proposed over $100 million in tax increases to “fully fund” schools. However, unlike Board Members in the past, Hummer will have to face the voters and defend her tax hike proposals this fall.
It is imperative that Anne Arundel County voters elect Board of Education members who are dedicated to both improving schools and spending responsibly. It’s important to put children first and to pay teachers a respectable wage, but not to follow the Democratic and Union playbook of spending to excess and demand more and more taxpayer dollars.
