LETTER: Some Animals are More Equal Than Others

A Lawmaker, who is a Delegate from Prince Georges County, is renting a house on our street for 91 days.

She has obtained an annual residential parking permit despite the law requiring primary residency of more than 180 days to get a parking permit.  How did she obtain the parking pass?

Mayor Buckley’s staff granted her a “special exception.”  I wonder how a “special exception” is granted when there is no provision in the law to do so?  We asked the City, and they remain silent on the issue with no resolution.

Buckley’s staff member, Hilary Raftovich, claimed she was merely helping a “resident.”  Well, this Delegate is neither a resident, nor does she require help from the city staff when she has a taxpayer funded, designated parking place in the State garage less than one thousand feet from this rental house!

Another question: why is the State funding a person, whose home of record is within commuting distance, a place to live in Annapolis for 91 days?

How many of you drive over 30 minutes to work?  What would your boss say if you were to try and claim reimbursement for a hotel rather than go home after the work day?

I guess George Orwell was right: When it comes to lawmakers: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
