Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down - April 14

April 14, 2012

Thumbs up to Hagerstown City Councilman Lewis C. Metzner, who moments before the council was to go into executive session Tuesday to discuss “a business or industrial organization,” called for talks about a lease extension with the Hagerstown Suns and a possible new multiuse stadium to be public. Metzner cited previously private discussions as the reason for a lack of strong public support, and the council proceeded to discuss the lease agreement publicly.

Thumbs up to the nine people who filed to run for seats on the Boonsboro and Funkstown town councils. Too often, people are quick to complain about local government without taking an active role in the process. Kudos to these folks for their willingness to step into the political arena.
