SAMPLE LETTER IN SUPPORT OF HB 1199
I support HB 1199, the Northern Bay Crossing bill, which prohibits the State of Maryland from placing a bay bridge to Kent County. As a resident, I would hate to see this small county forever changed into subdivisions, asphalt, and fast food restaurants because a bridge and the accompanying highways cut through it from one side to the other. This is a special place with large expanses of fertile farmland, beautiful shorelines, historic sites, and quaint villages which should be protected. The Kent County Comprehensive Plan recognizes the specialness of our county and for over 30 years has opposed a bay bridge landing on our shore.
I do not want a bay bridge crossing into Kent County creating a massive scar on our pristine agricultural and historic lands, ruining our thriving farm economy and destroying historic sites. Therefore, I urge you to give a favorable report to HB 1199.
