Many of the neighborhoods in our District are being left behind. We have communities where the residents can't go outside after dark. Communities where the unemployment rate is far higher than the state average. Blocks where most of the houses are boarded up. The problems have started to spill into all of our neighborhoods. Young people especially, that feel that opportunities are passing them by, are resorting more often to criminal activity, sometimes violent.

Let's work to bring opportunities into all of our communities.Let's work to reverse policies that have discouraged businesses from moving into the area, and look for ways to make it less costly to do business in Maryland. Improving the business climate will dramatically increase the number of opportunities for our residents.
