Thanks Frank, Thanks Rush

CD-6 and CD-12 Jobs are exported to Maryland's 2nd Congressional District:

Ruppersberger Breaks Ground for New Corporate Campus to House New BRAC Jobs Near APG

ManTech Will Create 300 Jobs and Be First Tenant at Water’s Edge Corporate Campus

(Aberdeen, MD), June 15 – Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) joined Maryland leaders and broke ground on a new corporate campus to house hundreds of new, good-paying, high-tech jobs coming to Harford County as part of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) decision. ManTech International Corporation, a government contractor, expects to bring 300 jobs to the area and will be the first tenant at the Water’s Edge Corporate Campus near Aberdeen Proving Ground.

“Jobs are the gasoline that powers our nation’s economy. When you have a job, you can support your family and your community. Jobs are tough to come by in this challenging economy. It is exciting news to hear that ManTech is expanding and growing here in Harford County,” said Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger. “Maryland prides itself on offering businesses a well-educated, highly skilled workforce. ManTech is tapping into this great resource.”

The estimated 60,000 new jobs coming to Aberdeen Proving Ground, Fort Meade, and other bases in Maryland through BRAC are a boon for the local economy if done correctly. The Maryland Delegation lobbied for these good paying jobs and has ensured Maryland has the necessary resources to upgrade and expand Maryland’s infrastructure to prepare for them. Through Congressman Ruppersberger’s work on the Appropriations Committee, he has helped secure millions of dollars for dozens of infrastructure projects – everything from upgrading our roads, highways, and bridges, improving our mass transit options, increasing support for our first responders and law enforcement officials, expanding our schools and hospitals and protecting the Chesapeake Bay and our environment.

ManTech currently has 9,000 employees worldwide. 700 of those positions are already in Maryland. The 63,000 square-foot facility is scheduled to be finished in March 2011.

By the way, Pallone issued a statement today condemning the attacks on soldiers of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic. That's really important to the people of New Jersey's 6th congressional district.

Another Pallone Failure

I'm sorry. But wasn't it a republican Presidents commission that closed the fort? And a republican administration that approved the closure? What a bunch of bullshit Art. Because Pallone couldn't stop the previous republican administration from stopping the closure, you blame them? Gimme a break.

Gosh Ambro other congressman in other districts saved their forts.
Pallone did jack s---t to protect a major economic driver in this county.

Yeah he gets blame for that. You want to blame Bush Cheny to. Thats OK with me. I will agree to that. But that does not get Pallone of the hook for ANOTHER FAILURE.

Poor ambro - this is going to be a long four and a half months. You may want to lose the "blame Bush" mantra you Dems are hanging your hats on. Ain't working. You see, Frank Pallone is our local advocate - one who has consistently let us down. Look at the FEMA maps and Fort Monmouth - as weak and ineffectual as you can get. The administration in Washington can order base closings - they have no stake in where, just what the bottom line is. Pallone does have a stake and he screwed up, as he usually does. Game over Pallone, no more cruising back into office without a fight. Go Anna, go!

And Holt too. The freaking base is in his district and he has and continues to be AWOL.

The only guy who tried was Chris smith and he got no help from Holt and pallone

Holt and Pallone were both absent on even attempting to save Fort Monmouth. They continue to be absent on the Fort redevelopment plan, choosing politics over helping the towns in their own districts!

Ask Holt and Pallone why the towns of Oceanport, Eatontown and Tinton Falls can't get the land for $1 like previous Fort closures? That would help the local economy more than any other Fort Redevelopment Plan.

Time for change!

oh, please be real, for once! said...

well, Rick, then perhaps Pallone's 10 years or so of getting re-elected on the bi-annual,superficial "Save the Fort"campaigns, would be so, if not for the Dem-controlled Congresses!.. bottom-line is, he is never ANYWHERE in the odd-years, and only trucks out the same-old, same-old,even-year garbage, with NO positive results showing, in jobs, or tax cuts, or business incentives, or positive economic development, on and on!.. NOT gonna fly this time.. Frank's now so passe', he hums big-band tunes!!..he's simply gotta go! ..
