Moco's Praisner Admitted to Hospital

Montgomery County

Montgomery County Council member Don Praisner (D-Eastern County) has been admitted to Suburban Hospital in Bethesda for tests involving "recurring stomach discomfort," and was transferred to the internal care unit for further evaluation, a council spokeswman said today in a statement.

According to the statement, visitors are being limited to family and staff members. Cards are permitted, but Suburban officials said flowers are not permitted in the ICU.

Praisner was elected to the council last year to succeed his wife, longtime council member Marilyn Praisner, following her death.

Don will be back at work in a couple days. When he does, I hope he reflects on President Obama's 1st act in office which was to freeze pay increases for White House staffers. When I ran against Don as the Republican nominee just last year, my platform was to:

1.) Freeze pay for all county employees and teachers; and,
2.) Never vote to surpass the Charter limit on property tax collection.

Contrary, the budget Nancy Navarro spearheaded included over-the-top salary increases for teachers which is part of the massive budget deficit the county is facing today.

Today, thanks to the passing of Robin Ficker's ballot question, 1, and only 1 councilman can require the county to stick to the Charter Limit on property tax collection, to help struggeling homeowners being foreclosed upon. When Don gets back to work & rolls up his sleaves, he SHOULD be that vote. I encourage him to do so.
