Prohibit Developer/Builder Contributions to Howard County Executive and Council

95 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Lisa Markovitz is proposing to strengthen the Public Ethics law for Howard County legislation to prohibit developers and builders from contributing to the campaigns of the Howard County Executive and County Council candidates. This will help ensure that zoning and development decisions are made more fairly, openly and with a balance for developers and the community.


This proposal has precedent in neighboring counties. In Prince George's County (where the County Council also does zoning, like in Howard County) it is ILLEGAL for developers to contribute to the campaigns of the County Executive and the County Council. In Frederick County, (where the County Commissioners also do zoning), it is ILLEGAL for developers to contribute to the campaigns of the Commissioners.


Howard County has a much weaker “disclosure” law that has done nothing to limit large and pervasive contributions to elected officials making decisions on the applicants’ development projects.


By signing this petition, you will send a clear signal that zoning decisions in Howard County must be made fairly, transparently, and without conflicts of interest in order to place our neighborhoods first.
