Maryland Morning: Land Bank Canned, Senator Della on HB1096/SB889

You can listen to Senator Della talk about the split-rate property tax bill on today’s Maryland Morning.  We’re thrilled to have his support, and hope Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake follows Senator Della’s and the City Council’s leadership on this issue.  Baltimore City residents, you deserve better!

Listen to Senator Della’s piece here (scroll down to Senate Bill 889: Baltimore City – Property Taxes – Vacant and Uninhabitable Real Property, For:  Sen. George Della (D – Baltimore City)

Tuesday’s Maryland Morning topic was the Land Bank, and the fact that the Mayor has killed Baltimore City’s land bank bill (link opens a PDF).  This was also reported in the City Paper earlier this month.

If you listen to the Maryland Morning pieces, the theme of the day seems to be transparency, oversight, and accountability — three things that have not existed in our city’s government for quite some time.
