Del. LeRoy Myers said that having a charter home-rule form of government would enable Washington County to take care of business day to day instead of relying on a 90-day annual session of the Maryland General Assembly. Myers, R-Washington/Allegany, kicked off a discussion on the subject with a breakfast meeting Wednesday attended by the Washington County Board of Commissioners, members of the county legislative delegation, experts and interested residents.
