Baltimore County Council Member Says New Charter Review Panel Has Conflicts of Interest

Baltimore County Council member has withdrawn his name from legislation establishing a commission to review the county charter, citing possible conflicts of interest by some members of the panel.

“I cannot in good conscience support a commission comprised of a large number of lobbyists who are currently on retainer with special interests that currently have issues before the County Government,” Wade Kach, a Cockeysville Republican, said in an email to constituents last week. “These special interests focus mostly on land use issues which comprise a large portion of the day to day operations of local government.”
