In preparation for building the 2018 budget, the Department of Finance and Budget hosted a public town hall in order to present county residents the opportunity to weigh in on the budget process and ask questions or offer suggestions as to the 2018 budget structure.

Tricia spoke to the representatives from the Finance and Budget Department about the need for a Citizen Review Committee to give the public a better chance to examine and effect the Calvert County Budget. While Tricia appreciated the steps recently taken to make the budget process marginally more transparent, she heavily emphasized the need for more and deeper engagement with the public. Tricia Powell is committed to transparency in all levels of government, and will continue to push for more transparent processes.

Tricia Powell had a chance to address the Calvert County Democratic Club on Tuesday night, August 29th, at Adam’s Taphouse in Prince Frederick. She spoke about the issues that mean the most for her: the Dominion safety study and evacuation plan, education and fair contracts for educators, and the opioid epidemic which has effected so many here in Calvert County.

The focus of the meeting was on VoteBuilder, the Maryland voter database which will become an essential tool for the Democratic Party in 2018. Tricia was able to inform the group that she already has access to the database, and is happy to extend that access for anyone in the group. Contact her: for more information.
