What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"Crime in the streets for elderly and citizens walking in Annapolis, which is a beautiful town to retire in and walk. Also taxes too high, calming devices

(traffic islands) obstructing driving in the 8th ward on Bay Ridge Avenue. Why is the market house not open at this time for our convenience?"

"I have the time and desire to make the necessary changes to our community for safety and future Annapolitans to enjoy."
