Letter to the Editor: Del. Mark Fisher Raps Senate President’s Baltimore Event

Editor’s Note: The following was submitted in response to our Nov. 28 item on several high-dollar fundraisers in December — including one for Senate President Mike Miller (D). In an earlier version of this item, posted on Sunday night, Del. Fisher erroneously stated that lobbyist Gerard Evans is hosting the fundraiser.

Senate President Mike Miller, who represents Calvert County, is holding a $1,000 a plate fundraiser in Baltimore.

Miller is holding the fundraiser in a city with poverty so great that 86 percent of public school students receive free meals. Meanwhile, he’s charging $1,000 a plate!

It appears that lobbyists and special interests continue to control career politicians like Mike Miller. Meanwhile, the children of Baltimore are stuck in failing schools, broken homes, unsafe neighborhoods, and poverty.

Del. Mark Fisher, a Republican, represents District 27C in Calvert County.

  • While Miller might be politically tone-deaf to hold such a high priced fund raiser in such a low-economic area, lack of funding is NOT Baltimore city’s problem, which is the vortex through which so much of the state’s tax dollars are sucked out of the rest of the Maryland counties. And yet the same issues persist.
    Could it be the POLICIES and not the funding that is the root of the problem ?

  • From the same article about political fundraisers linked in your letter: “It will also cost you $1,000 to fete Gov. Larry Hogan (R) at his annual Governor’s Gala at the Hilton in Baltimore. Hogan has been fundraising relentlessly all fall, as he gears up for re-election.” How is this different?

  • Gov.
    Hogan is also having a $1000 a plate fund raiser in Baltimore. Really Mr. Fisher, you can do better than this.
