Sun/Record – Del. Dan Riley Offended by The Aegis/Record Calling His Hotel Tax Efforts ‘The Annual Charade’

Letter to Editor from Del. Dan Riley  ,The Record 04/23/2010

“I take offense to your assumption made in your editorial “Taxing Our Brains” in the 16 April issue of The Record. Your statement “some esteemed legislators who continue the ANNUAL CHARADE of they’re  (sp:their) working to get the (hotel) tax approved” galls me.

The hours I spent drawing up the bill, speaking with constituents, meeting with the tourist community and the hotel industry,plus the bill presentation is no charade.

My efforts are sincere in seeking a hotel tax for Harford County, the only Maryland county without one….

…This bill would actually help Harford County especially Aberdeen after the Ripkin Stadiumn debacle,in the financial recession. I am sure my opponents will use my position for a hotel tax against me in the up coming election. So be it.” Delegate Dan Riley

Defintion of charade – Charade – 1. ridiculous pretense, an absurdly false or pointless act or situation
