    My Congressman Andy Harris visited Maryland’s Eastern Shore on Friday, 1 June 2018. One of his stops was for a Farm Credit Bureau Roundtable in Denton, MD. I decided to go. It turns out the event is a private meeting with the MidAtlantic Farm Credit branch in Denton that invited Dr. Andy to come talk about the “Farm” bill. The public was turned away, politely by staff. I didn’t make a stink or a scene. Still, clearly, the public was not welcome. Staff wanted to know how I found out about the meeting. Social media. The Talbot Spy. Good job, Spy. My Congressman? Good job, not so much.

  2. Dear Congressman Harris,

    Thanks for your support for our veterans… finally. Where have you been for the past seven years? Certainly absent when it comes to raising awareness and assistance for veterans. Since there is a candidate now running for your seat who is a veteran that cares about veterans you are showing up. It’s all window dressing and it’s too little, too late, Andy. Better dust off your resume. Don’t bother sending it to me.

    A veteran and a Jesse Colvin supporter.
