Actually there is a difference between Giles and Siddiqui. Giles and Siddiqui who as you well know did not even give you the respect of showing up at the Elkridge forum to discuss some very serious issues but it was Siddiqui who bought herself a seat on the BOE. I believe Siddiqui has acheived a new low and is now the poster child for what is wrong with the BOE. Sorry Mr. Andrews that in your hometown of Elkridge you did not have a chance to debate the issues with these two but instead had to sit with their chronies. jack

Although I like to keep an open mind I do feel like Siddiqui being elected was probably the in no small part due to the massive personal investment in public signs throughout Howard County.
