YOU'LL REMEMBER THE BALTIMORE BREW'S ARTICLE THAT SHOWED UTTER FRUSTRATION AND CONTEMPT FOR THE OPEN MEETING LAW THAT BASICALLY IS WINDOW-DRESSING. I WROTE TWO REQUESTS TO THIS OPEN MEETING DEPARTMENT DEMANDING THAT THEY PROVIDE PEOPLE WITH A SINGLE-SOURCE LISTING OF ALL PUBLIC MEETINGS WELL IN ADVANCE OF THE MEETING. THE POLITICIANS KNOW THAT PEOPLE CANNOT PERUSE EVERY AGENCY WEBSITE TO KNOW WHEN MEETINGS OCCUR. IT IS VERY EASY TO DO.....SIMPLY PROVIDE A ENTRY SCREEN TO EACH AGENCY AND REQUIRE ENTRY OF NEXT MEETING DATE AND AGENDA IMMEDIATELY INTO THAT SCREEN OR AS SOON AS THAT INFO IS AVAILABLE. THAT SCREEN WOULD THEN BECOME A LIST BY MEETING DATE OF ALL PUBLIC MEETINGS AND WOULD ALSO PROVIDE A PUBLIC FEEDBACK LOOP. THIS LIST COULD BE LINKED TO WEBSITES LIKE MINE FOR EASY ACCESS.
THIS IS NOT HARD AND IT MUST BE DONE!!!
AGAIN, THIS IS GOVERNOR O'MALLEY'S BOARD
AND ATTORNEY GENERAL GANSLER'S OVERSIGHT THAT IS FAILING.

Rally at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore: End 3/5 in Baltimore!Public Event · By Unite Here Local 7
- Wednesday, October 10, 2012
- 4:30pm until 6:00pm in EDT
McKeldin Square (Pratt and Light Streets, Baltimore MD)
There are hotel workers in Baltimore who make only 3/5 of what union hotel workers make in Los Angeles, Oakland, Seattle, Philadelphia, San Francisco Airport and Chicago Airport markets. In these same markets, the room rates that customers pay are comparable to those in Baltimore.
Workers at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore have come forward to fight for a fair and democratic process to decide on union representation. Baltimore hotel workers should not be making 3/5ths of what union hotel workers are making in cities where the rooms cost the same!

DO NOT ALLOW THESE CANNED CAMPAIGN ISSUES ON TAXES FRAME THE DEBATE. WE KNOW WE NEED THIS BANK TRANSACTION TAX AND WE KNOW WE NEED THE TOP TAX RATE AT 70%, NOT THE SAME AS YOU AND I IF WE ARE TO REVERSE INCOME INEQUITY. WE HEAR NOTHING OF THIS IN THE MEDIA AS THEY ONLY REPEAT THE CORPORATE POLITICIANS STANCES.
CALL AND WRITE YOUR INCUMBENTS AND MEDIA TO DEMAND THIS ISSUE BE IN THE DEBATES.

TELL CONGRESS IT'S TIME FOR A ROBIN HOOD TAX! Wall Street gambling and greed collapsed the global economy and we are still reeling.
Politicians claim America is “broke” to justify layoffs and draconian cuts in critical services.
We have a better idea.
Yesterday, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), co-chair of the Progressive Caucus, introduced a bill to place a tiny tax on the sale of stocks, bonds, and derivatives. This bill has the potential to raise billions in desperately needed revenue while clamping down the Wall Street casino that continues to threaten our financial stability.
Join PRwatch.org and RootsAction.org and hundreds of other organizations in calling for a Robin Hood Tax.
It's not a tax on the people, its a tax for the people!
Please forward this email widely to like-minded friends.
