Profile of the District 5 Race

Sunday's Sun provides coverage of the District 5 County Council race between Cathy Vitale and AJ "Tito" Baca. District 5 covers Severna Park and the Broadneck peninsula.

Baca has made quite a bit of hay out of the fact that much of the infrastructure of the County schools is in disrepair, with a particular focus on the dilapidated state of Severna Park High School. Baca also supports a Watershed Restoration Fund. Vitale agrees that restoring waterways damaged by runoff if necessary, but doesn't think that every household should have to contribute to the solution (though it contributes to the problem). Encouragingly, Vitale does support raising impact fees on new development, as a way to offset new infrastructure costs.
