Supplemental Budget Has Little for Anne Arundel

O'Malley's supplemental budget will provide little for the county, if unchanged by Monday.

The supplemental budget proposed by Gov. Martin O'Malley for fiscal year 2014 includes money for Maryland colleges, a new "Gun Center" and the Towson baseball team, but not much particularly for Anne Arundel County, according to The Maryland Gazette.  The gun center would help police enforce new gun laws.

The $222 million supplementary budget also provides $125,000 for academic research of medical marijuana and sets aside $10 million to offset the effects of federal sequestration on the state, according to the report.

This comes as Anne Arundel County Community College is increasing tuition to make up for a budget deficit, while the county's libraries are closing early to reduce hours, reports The Gazette.

Really, does this surprise anyone??? O'Malley doesn't care about the county, he only cares about himself and what is going to make him look good so he can run for President in 2016. What I want to know is with the state in the financial trouble that we are in and our taxes constantly being increased WTH are we putting money out for a baseball team in Towson, a "Gun Center" (and I don't believe it is to help police to enforce the new MORONIC gun laws) and medical marijuana research (hasn't that already been researched for years). O"Malley needs to remove his head from is a$$ and come back to reality!!!
