Here at CBF we often say what happens on the land is mirrored in the water. Similarly, what happens in our county council chambers can have a major impact on efforts to restore our waters to health. Local governments have a major role to play in closing the gap. Your local elected officials can take actions to keep the region’s waters and the Chesapeake Bay on the road to recovery.
CBF held five candidate forums in Maryland to find out what candidates for local office will do to clean up your local rivers and creeks and the Chesapeake Bay. Watch the videos below.
We are pleased to have sponsored the following forums for the educational benefit of county residents. CBF and other partner organizations do not support or endorse candidates for elected office.
