Tricia Powell at Calvert County Budget Town Hall
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.
