Let Our Communities Act Locally

WE BELIEVE local governments are designed to support healthy families, a clean environment and good jobs in Maryland’s cities, towns and counties; and,

WE BELIEVE local government exists to respond to the needs of the people who live and work there; and

WE BELIEVE special interest groups have successfully pushed state lawmakers across the country to prevent local governments from passing laws that support healthy families, a clean environment and good jobs; and

WE BELIEVE special interest groups are now actively targeting Maryland state lawmakers; and,

WE BELIEVE blocking local governments’ ability to pass laws that support healthy families, a clean environment and good jobs unfairly hurts women, children and people of color.

Therefore my organization:

  • Agrees that local governments should be permitted to pass laws that support healthy families, a clean environment and good jobs; and
  • Will work collaboratively with LOCAL Maryland to stop special interest groups from pushing state lawmakers to block cities, towns and counties from passing laws to achieve these goals; and
  • Will respond to LOCAL Maryland action alerts through activities such as submitting testimony, participating at hearings, and/or asking members to take action; and
  • Hereby joins LOCAL Maryland and agrees to have its name listed as a member.
