Do you work for Harford County Government? The school system or sheriff's office per chance?

Can you imagine Craig as Comptroller? What a frightening thought, as he is a reckless spendthrift during such draconian economic times. When the recession first hit and surrounding jurisdictions were tightening their belts, he was doling out significant raises. It is interesting that the focus of these raises was on his main voter base. When there was suddenly a "surplus" last year, instead of returning a portion to all those who had overpaid their taxes and providing some relief to "us commoners," he gave bonuses out. Sounds like buying votes, if you ask me and they don't come cheap these days. I can't wait to hear what his fiscal and monetary policies will be for the state if folks are crazy enough to elect this jerk.
