“Our state needs new leaders like myself with the courage to take on the corporate and special interests. Vote Green!”
As a public service, the Baltimore Sun is offering free blogs to candidates in key races this year. It is up to the candidate to decide whether to accept the blog invitation and to decide how often to post on this blog. Baltimore Sun does not edit any candidate's blog, and we are not responsible for any content posted by the candidate or the candidate's representatives here.
My long-term goal and that of the Green Party is providing free public higher education.
Education funding is not negotiable. I will not reduce the state’s spending commitment to public education, nor will I support continued furloughs. Furloughs harm working men and women and cannot be sustained long-term. It is wrong to use already over-burdened working families to balance our state’s budget. I also oppose shifting teacher pensions to county governments that both Martin O’Malley and Robert Ehrlich know will be unable to pay them. An internal audit, along with new sources of revenue and the creation of a state-owned bank as I have discussed at length in previous posts will ensure that education funding is not only permanently preserved but becomes, once again, a state funding priority.
