Eckardt summarizes year in general assembly

Senator Addie Eckardt addressed the Rotary Club of Salisbury Thursday night.  Her topic of discussion centered around the year of work in the Maryland General Assembly.

The Cambridge resident said it has been a "very good year" in the general assembly, saying it was despite the angst created by news coming out of Washington.

The former-District 37B delegate also praised Governor Hogan for his work, listing his initiatives to balance the budget with no new taxes, different programs to help keep Maryland 'open for business,' and the record spending on education passed under his watch.

Moving forward, Eckardt says she is most concerned about infrastructure and the continuing clean up following the mortgage crisis.

"Iinfrastructure, and we've worked on that, so we need to play that out to make sure we can prevent additional blunt.  And being able to maintain an adequate provision of health care that includes the delivery of substance abuse and mental health services."
