Now It's Your Turn: What's the perfect gift?

John Wagner

The holiday shopping season is upon us. Name a Maryland politician and tell us what you think would be the perfect gift. And have some fun. Perhaps there's something on your list for Gov. O'Malley, the Anne Arundel Council, Donna Edwards or Glenn Ivey ...

Share your thoughts by posting a comment below.

On Monday, we asked what impact the conviction of Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon would have on that city's national reputation.

You offered a range of views on our Web Site and Facebook page.

Echoing some other readers, Patricia Dunnavant Dennison wrote: "It takes alot to hurt Batlimore's reputation. But yes, I think she has hurt Batlimore reputation and is not a mentor to women in politics."

Dixon also had her defenders, including watkins4, who posted the following:

"The new mayor will be showered with gifts by anyone seeking favors, just like Dixon and any other mayor previous. Dixon has done more to turn this city around than any in our lifetimes, and now we'll drop her over some gift she received. The next mayor will be showered with gifts too. But will he/she do everything for Baltimore that Dixon has? Maybe not. Baltimore will backslide after Dixon leaves office. But the gifts will keep flowing to elected officials just the same."

I would give County Councilman Knapp a spanking for supporting an increase in the gasoline tax when he knows that our district's homeowners travel further than homeowners in the other four districts to get where they have to go and when he knows that state officials will just raid gasoline tax revenues for purposes other than transportation when they get those revenues anyhow.
