Why not do pay reductions of 6 percent to each state employee making 6 figures and up?
Why not cancel 1-2 vacation days to save money?
Why not dump Lt. Governor's staff and let the Governor's staff do both jobs?
Does the Governor's wife need a staff?
Any legislator within one hour of Annapolis cancell their hotel lodgings-
let them commute like the rest of us!
those are my fiscal sanity requests!


With the resignation of David Edgerley, the State has lost a very experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated economic development director at an inopportune time, given the current economy. What changes, if any, in economic development policy does the Governor envision, and what short- and long-term objectives does the Governor look for the next DBED director to achieve?
