Thank you to everyone who took the time to contact the County Council and County Executive Calvin Ball in support of CB51. The bill had overwhelming support via written and oral testimony and phone calls. The bill passed the County Council with three votes. It was then vetoed by Calvin Ball. It seems we have repeated what happened with CB9. Attached is the statement written by the Howard County Coalition for Immigrant Justice in response to the veto.
If anyone would like to become more involved in immigrant justice efforts, please contact UUCC Member Tammy Spengler at Tammy424@me.com. Thank you!
