1
Kamenetz record
What do you consider the greatest accomplishments and failings of the Kamenetz administration?
Weir: Accomplishments would be 3 new Elementary Schools being built in my District. Long list of failures: Property management has destroyed Baltimore County. All local issues are being ignored, Moving of the Police Station Precinct 12 to a location away from the center of the district. The station is too small to house police and they are still using the old station . Northpoint Gov Center has been abandoned from any repairs due to issues with he and the Gov. All other problems being ignored I could go on for hours.

Resources/Taxes

Housing
Do you support Baltimore County's federal housing consent decree? In particular, do you support a prohibition on rental discrimination against those who use federal housing vouchers?
Weir: Housing needs to be fairly spread through all parts of the County. This issue was handled wrong by the federal gov in the first place. Terrible math instead of vouchers for $1695 per month which equals $ 20340. per year after 5 years the feds spent over 100K and this goes on for longer the residents still have to come up app 6-10K of their own money with never owning anything you could have eliminated slum lords by purchasing the homes for the people and making them responsible for property taxes and insurance and they would have been responsible contributing people in society and taken more pride in their property instead of letting it run down and slum lords making all the money

School system
Does the county government exercise adequate oversight over the school system?
Weir: No a audit should be done immediately corruption is terrible. Teachers are treated with no respect , there is not a adequate system to deal with troubled youth and bullies. Also AA and AAA need to be benefit eligible and paid accordingly, Common core needs to go and get back to common sense ie KiSS method of teaching to prepare students for the real world. Teach cursive writing again.
