Ehrlich's treasured Towson


Governor Ehrlich was back on familiar turf today to unveil his fiscal 2007 budget for construction projects throughout the state.

The former Baltimore County state legislator and congressman picked Towson University as his backdrop and the unusually warm January morning allowed for an outdoor event in front of Stephens Hall.

"I've been accused of being a little prejudicial toward Towson," the governor said, before announcing $45 million for a new liberal arts complex on the campus. "I may be found guilty of that charge."

Ehrlich is a frequent guest lecturer at Towson and his chief of staff Chip DiPaula is a 1986 graduate of the school. The governor's congressional papers are housed at Towson and he said at the event that he has decided he would like his gubernatorial papers kept there, as well.

Realizing that he had gotten ahead of himself as prepares to campaign for another four-year term, Ehrlich added that he expected that would be "many, many years down the road."
