Kudos again to County Executive Gardner for adding $10.5 million above the maintenance of effort (MOE) for our schools. Tonight there’s a hearing about the budget:

- Vote for three of these articulate, caring and educated candidates for our Board of Education:
Let’s make sure that education is a priority here in Frederick County!
