We had the wonderful opportunity to be involved and spectate the cutting of the annual New York Rockefeller Christmas tree! Chosen right in our back yard in Elkton, MD. Devon Price the owner of the tree was interviewed as well as myself!
The tree is a 79-foot tall, 46-foot in diameter, 12-ton Norway Spruce. Tree was resting on 115-foot-long trailer. It took several hours to safely secure it to the trailer
The replacement tree is a seedling from the original tree.

I am very excited the Bill to Restrict Solar was passed this week. I have been working on this legislation for over 9 months and I want to thank the council and administration for their support of our 12 council amendments, which clearly state that we want to continue to support our Agricultural Rural Heritage by keeping Community Solar off our Class One Soils and requiring annual soil tests on the Solar properties. I will continue to work hard as your councilman to be the voice of agriculture for Cecil County.
