Good morning, it’s Thursday, April 15th  2021  and THIS is your Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief.

It’s tax day! Just kidding. The feds put it off until May 15th and the State put it off until July 15th for most people–so no need to dash off to the post office tonight. The Bay Bridge Boat Show opens up today and I am gonna play hookie, but have a lot to do first, so let’s get right into it.

Here’s some political news for you. Follow along. Yesterday morning, Maryland Matters broke the news that Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford is not going to run for Governor in 2022. He said his family was not overly supportive and he did not have the fire to run, so he is content to “ride into the sunset”.

And within an hour of that news breaking, Commerce Secretary Kelly Schulz announced that hell yeah–she’s in and made the announcement on video released at noon. She is the only Republican declared at this point, but former Lt. Governor Michael Steele and Harford County Executive Barry Glassman are considering a run. Of course on the Democratic side, we have presumed frontrunner Peter Franchot already in the race, and former PG County Executive Rushern Baker, former Attorget General Doug Gansler, and former DNC Chair Tom Perez all have said they are considering a run. Stay tuned, the next few years will be interesting with the Annapolis City elections this year and then the State and County ones next!

The Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium opens today as a mass vaccination center. They expect to do 500 shots the first few days and ramp up to 1500 per day next week. Appointments are already being set up so if you have not pre-registered do it now at . And I am not sure why they did not think of this, but when the state calls you for an appointment, your smart phone is likely to flag it as spam. So answer the phone. According to the State, 34.2% of adults in Anne Arundel have received the 1st dose, and 23.3% have received both doses or the single shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine! And remember—anyone over 16 is eligible.

A repeat of a reminder about COVID scams. Every day it seems the police are investigating unemployment fraud. One sign to look for are mail sent to your home with a different name. And from what I am hearing, getting it straightened out is a mess–especially if you ARE collecting unemployment. And there are other scams out there too– never give anyone your social security number or any private info or banking or credit card info. And no relative is stuck in a foreign country with the only means of release is a bunch of Apple gift cards. Scammers are out there. Be suspicious of everything.

And finally, we are down to three students for consideration to be on the Board of Education. The finalists are Bunmi Omisore from Arundel High, Fletcher Port from Severna Park High, and Natalie Smith from Broadneck High. These three leaders will take part in a debate on Monday the 26th at 6pm on the AACPS YouTube Channel. And the student who serves, will get an $8000 scholarship…and remember while many districts have student members, Anne Arundel is the only one in the nation where the student has full voting rights and privileges.

OK that’s it for the news today.  As always, thank you all  for listening and if you are somewhere where you can leave a rating or a review, please do. And make sure you let your friends, family and colleagues know to FOLLOW us.  It really does help!

A quick thank you to the sponsors for today’s Daily News Brief– Solar Energy Services up in Millersville, the Kristi Neidhardt Team of Northrop Realty, a Long and Foster Company. And to the Bay Bridge Boat Show– I’ll see you in a few hours.

It is Thursday so of course we have Trevor from Annapolis Makerspace  here with your Maker Minutes.   And of course George Young from DCMDVA Weather is here with your locally forecast weather report.  All of that in just about 60 seconds!
