Chesapeake Bay
At a time when the federal government’s commitment to Chesapeake Bay restoration is questionable, what new steps should Maryland take to protect this resource?
Tinus: My passion is to clean the Patapsco River basis. I have designed a caisson method of sludge removal that will not have the tax payers cover the expense. No high impact dredging that will release more toxins then already being leached into our National Treasure. I have scuba dove of Fort McHenry and the chemical smelling sludge is over three foot thick. Aberdeen Proving Grounds has been rumored for along time of barrels of mustard gasses and other agents being buried that leach into the water shed. Thus bay grasses and wild life are poisoned. We must investigate this rumor.

Business Climate
How would you characterize Maryland’s business climate? What can the state do to foster the creation of more family-supporting jobs?
Tinus: Build a Eastern Shore beltway system , a 707 Northern Bay Bridge , Restore the Chesapeake. To be specific create large projects that will create secure employment for generations to come. A $15.00 per hour working wage. With out placing the burden on the small business owners. The welfare assistance program can finance the wage increase for recipients. At the current rate a recipient of welfare , financially fares better then the minimum wage of today. That one receives approx. $22.00 per 40 hour work week , not working? At the minimum rate today plus a subsidiary of $7.00 from assistance less the $22.00 saves $15.00 . Opening a wage increase for most minimum wage employees.

Transparency
Do the state’s Public Information Act and open meetings laws adequately ensure Marylanders’ ability to exercise oversight of the government?

The Ed App is a transparent vehicle that will drive the voters to Annapolis from the comfort of their own homes. Allowing the voters to vote on Bills such as HB 1302 . A Bill that infringes search and seizure, gun ownership rights. Bill such as these can and must be put to a Popular Vote. No representative should bear the burden of nor has the authority to vote on Constitutional abridgments. Only We The People can amend the Maryland and U.S. Constitution.
