EASTON, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is holding a discussion on how Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts play a role in the economy.

O’Malley will be in Easton on Thursday to focus on the Choptank River as part of Maryland’s Bay Restoration and Watershed Implementation Plan.

The discussion with stakeholders in environmental protection and water quality is part of a series of forums the governor is holding around the state that focus on creating jobs.

The governor plans to talk about how a cleaner Chesapeake Bay affects the state’s ability to perform well economically.

    I’m sure Martin will come away with some new ideas to further tax the already over burdened tax payers of Maryland. If Marty owned a sailboat his dumb ass might see things differently. Taking a ride out for the day with the big wig cigar smoking crowd on a huge stink pot (power boat) he might see things a little differently.

    Maybe Marty can invite his Lib Buddy, Al Gore. They can tag team us Marylanders with their phoney environmental lies all at the expense of raising revenue through higher taxes. I think most of us are smart enough to not fall for these sky-is-falling environmental scare games any more. Let’s be practical- it’s about MONEY for the State. Only a Liberal would think Marty’s concerns about the Bay are genuine and sincere.
