Comment: ‘They have made us the laughingstock of the state.’
Carroll County readers get riled up.
Readers took their opinions to Carroll County Patch sites this week, flocking most to stories about what the Carroll County commission accomplished in 2011, how Westminster High School students created a book with the help of a published author, whether traffic is a growing issue on Liberty Road and how Sykesville was named the best place to raise children.
MOST SIGNIFICANT COUNTY COMMISSION DECISIONS IN 2011? “They have made us the laughingstock of the state with their ultra-conservative Tea Party pandering. They have just about eviscerated county government, completely killing the morale of senior staff and county employees, who were once empowered to their jobs. They long ago ceased to represent the interests of all Carroll citizens and have instead focused most of their attention on state and national issues, which have very little consequence to us here in the real world.” – JoeEldersburg
WESTMINSTER HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS MAKE A BOOK WITH A PUBLISHED AUTHOR “What an amazing experience for all involved! Thanks for doing the program, Westminster High, my daughter loved it!”- Mary Eastwood
SYKESVILLE NAMED BEST PLACE TO RAISE CHILDREN “I LOVE SYKESVILLE!!!!! I taught my little cousin how to ride a 2-wheeler in Oklahoma Road Middle School's parking lot in June 2008. A favorite memory & a great city!!!!!” – Jim Robertson
IS TRAFFIC A GROWING ISSUE ON LIBERTY ROAD? “It’s a very confusing highway design!” - Ann Horvath
