TheAegis/What The HDG Candidates Stand For/04/22/11 – …Shank believes there should be a seperate, countywide water and sewer authority that would remove liabilities from the city.

He also said economic development is another problem in Havre de Grace and he wants to focus on developing the Route 40 corridor…

The third issue, Shank says, is communication and transparencey. . The e-mail alert system should be used to send out information on council meetings as well as explanations of ordinances and potentially “confidential” information.

“I believe the citizens have a right to know”, he said. “Just because the mayor says  its confidential doesnt mean its confidential.”
