It was great to see our County Executive and PGPD in our community this morning as part of the Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative. There is no better way to understand the needs and challenges of our neighborhoods than to get out there among the people. We've had so many empty promises of improving our community in the past. I am optomistic that Mr. Baker is sincere and will make it happen.
