Join other counties to protest costly change
By ERICA MITRANOStaff writer
Joining other Maryland counties, the Charles County commissioners and school officials held a press conference Tuesday to denounce a proposed budget that would pass on half the costs of public school teacher and other pensions to local governments.
“If approved, this proposal will have profound fiscal impact, $240 million, on counties statewide, and that figure is rising fast,” commissioners’ President Candice Quinn Kelly (D) said of a fiscal 2013 budget proposed by Gov. Martin O’Malley (D).
