County Executives Request Support from Gubernatorial Candidates for Increased Education Funding

County Executive Ike Leggett (center) and his counterparts from Baltimore and Prince George’s counties have sent a joint letter to each of the three Democratic candidates for governor requesting that the candidates – Anthony Brown, Doug Gansler and Heather Mizeur – join the executives in advocating for increased state funding for education for their respective counties.

The letter read, in part: “Additional capital investments in education in our jurisdictions will provide a higher quality learning environment for our students and enable our teachers to meet the education needs of the 21st century. In addition to the long term education benefits, this investment will create jobs, foster economic development and improve the quality of life across the counties.”
