While statewide, voters may have registered their discontent with the “tax-and-spend” Democratic regime, we in Baltimore are still pretty psyched on the model. Well, more like “borrow-and-spend.”Baltimore voters overwhelmingly approved seven spending measures that would have the city borrowing up to $130 million in bonds to fund educational, economic, and cultural projects.
There’s $47 million for improvements to parks and recreation facilities and property as well as to the Enoch Pratt, another $47 million for economic development, and $34 million for renovations to public schools.
The Baltimore Museum of Art, the Walters Art Museum, Port Discovery Children’s Museum, and the National Aquarium will receive funds in the hundreds-of-thousands-of-dollars range.
