Michael R. Guerin
District 4 Commissioner
Carroll County, MD USA


We are overdue for a serious conversation about our future.  Not another esoteric discussion or expensive consulting group study.  It is time to prioritize and make tangible changes because if everything is important nothing is. In recent years the county has experienced significant revenue growth but also chosen to expand budgets well beyond that.  Taxing citizens to fill gaps would be simply be wrong.
