Stoner: Progressives part of Carroll too January 24, 2017 by Anna Stoner

A commenter, 'SadieAll,' made a good point, “… that even though we may have different views and values; we all make up Carroll County and deserve to have a say in its future… most of us are looking for a leader who fights for all of their constituents…”

Stoner: Progressives part of Carroll too

Almost 18 years ago I moved to Carroll County. My husband and I were looking for a home within commuting distance to Baltimore and a place with a small town feel to raise our family. We found a home in Hampstead. Almost immediately family members warned us of moving to the area. We are originally from Prince George's County and our family had heard rumors about Klan activity in Carroll County. I waved this off. Maybe they didn't really believe the Klan was still active but perhaps they believed that some of the bigotry of the past persisted. They were worried about the values our children would learn. I assured our loved ones that our family was strong, and our belief in equality and diversity would be instilled in our children. I'm happy to say we found like-minded people in the community to help us succeed.
