Economy - Allison Pickard for County Council District 2

Economy

Economic Growth and Infrastructure in Anne Arundel County

Allison Pickard supports responsible and balanced economic growth for Anne Arundel County.  We must ensure that our infrastructure keeps pace with residential development.  We must continue to encourage revitalization of our commercial centers in District 2 and around the county.  We should be looking to increase our commercial tax base as a means of increasing county revenue. Issues such as workforce development, a strong school system and transportation improvements will help Anne Arundel County be a community well suited for new business development.   Allison has a track record of seeking pragmatic solutions and working to find common ground among community leaders. We must work together to nurture the on-going economic growth and fiscal responsibility in District 2 and throughout Anne Arundel County.
