County Council Expansion
LWVBCo has joined a group of ordinary citizens and advocacy organizations to gather up to 12,000 in-person signatures between March 4 and Aug. 31. This will allow the public to vote to amend the Baltimore County Charter to expand the Council size by four more Council districts in the Nov. 8 election. This would increase the number of county districts from seven to eleven. This would also enlarge the Board of Appeals, Planning, and other boards.
The 4MORE! 4BALTIMORECOUNTY Ballot Issue Committee will hold a press conference Thursday, March 3 at 10 a.m. at the Randallstown Community Center, 3505 Resource Drive Randallstown, MD 21133. Members of the public and LWV Baltimore County are welcome to come hear about the introduction of a nonpartisan effort to increase the size of the Baltimore County Council through a public petition to add a referendum question to the Nov. 8 election ballot.
