About Sarah Lacey

Education

I earned my bachelor’s in chemical engineering from MIT in 2002. After working for 3 years, I entered law school. I earned my J.D. from The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, summa cum laude in 2008, with a certificate in Law and Public Policy.

Background

After college, I worked for USFilter–Memcor in Towson as a field process engineer. I traveled the country to run tests of our microfiltration membranes for water and wastewater treatment applications. After law school, I joined the litigation department of Saul Ewing LLP in Baltimore. In 2014, I joined Levin & Curlett LLC (also in Baltimore), where in 2016 I was promoted to partner. Presently, my practice focuses on plaintiff’s civil rights cases.

Development
Should the county develop small area plans as part of the upcoming General Development Plan and Comprehensive rezoning process?
Lacey: Yes. Just as a Councilwoman is the first-level elected representative for a jurisdiction within the County, the small area plans should be the first-level components in the comprehensive rezoning process. The small area plans should also be considered as a group within each councilmanic district, and the plans for each district then should be compared to each other, to ensure the overall plan is equitable.

Taxes
Do you support maximizing revenue under the county tax cap, or seeking additional revenues to support increased spending on education, public safety or other initiatives?
Lacey: Our budgets reflect our priorities. I do not, at this time, support raising local taxes. I do support lifting the cap if that is required to obtain more funding from the State.
