As a result of feedback from Spy readers over the last few months, we continue today a series of interviews over the next year with Talbot County and town council presidents. By providing a platform to highlight particular issues and opportunities through these conversations, it is hoped this new format will encourage more civic engagement.
We continue our new series with Corey Pack, president of the Talbot County Council. In the case of Talbot, it must be said that it continues with a jam-packed agenda. That is one reason our first chat with Corey lasts more than 28 minutes. The Spy is committed to making these updates as brief as possible, but in our second one with President Pack, we thought it best to have an extended version.
In our second conversation, our talk ranges from the FY 2020 budget, the Talbot County Public School budget request, the extension of sewers in the Bay Hundred, an interesting project for far- raised salmon in Cordova, short-term rentals, transparency in Talbot County government, robots in Talbot County Public Schools, the passing of Talbot County Planning Commission Member Mike Sullivan, the retirement of Talbot County Director of Corrections Doug Devenyns, and other topics that should have a real interest to county residents.
This video is approximately twenty-eight minutes in length. For more information on the Talbot County Council please go here
