Calvin Ball will be sworn in as our next Howard County Executive on Monday, December 3 at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium at Howard High School. One of the first things he has scheduled are a series of “Listening Sessions” with residents in Howard County. Here is information via the Howard County Government Website:

Listening Sessions
Calvin wants to hear from you about your experiences, hopes and dreams for Howard County.  Please share your thoughts with him to help shape the future direction of our county.
Please attend a Listen & Learn session, and make sure your voice is heard.  If you are unable to attend in person, please join in the Live Twitter Chat, or let us know what you think here.
In the case of inclement weather, sessions will be canceled if Howard County Public Schools are closed. For additional information, please call 410.313.1246. or email rebecca@balltransitionteam.com

I like that there is a mix of one daytime meeting, a bunch of evening meetings throughout the county and even an online Twitter chat.

I reached out to Calvin Ball for a statement for this article…here is what I received back today:

“I’d like to hear about the experiences, hopes, and vision that our residents want for Howard County. I believe, by working together, we can build the best community for us all.”

I was also told that he will be attending each of these sessions listed above…so do not miss out on this opportunity to let our new County Executive your thoughts about the future of our county.

Will you be attending? What is a top issue for you? Let me know in the comments.

Scott E
