A Note from Doug Gansler

douggansler14Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler, who is a Maryland gubernatorial candidate, sent out a note on Oct. 25 to his subscribers entitled, “moving forward.” The note comes one day after Gansler made national headlines for his explanation of a photo that shows him surrounded by teens at a Delaware beach party last June. Gansler held a news conference on Oct. 24 to address the photo and allegations of underage drinking at the party. You can read his note below:

Friends,

I am not known to mince words. For better or worse, I am not a smooth talking politician who scripts every word.

But when I make a mistake I own up to it.

The fact is that as a parent of a 19-year old, I face the same issues as many of you. How do we get it right? How do we draw the balance between helping our college teenagers make good choices and when to pull them back? You try to always make the best decisions. In this case, maybe I should have done something differently.

It has been heartening to hear from so many of you who have had similar personal experiences with these issues.

Despite the distractions Jolene and I have been focused on getting things done for the people of Maryland.

You may have missed it among the other stories this week but The Baltimore Sun also reported that a developer is backing off a plan that would have destroyed part of the University of Maryland golf course.

On Tuesday, we gathered with concerned community leaders and elected officials asking the University to save this valuable green space and focus on rebuilding and improving Route 1 leading into College Park. Our voices were heard. Now we will work together to make Route 1 an attractive and efficient gateway to the University of Maryland.

Like we did in Prince George’s County, Jolene and I will deliver for the people of Maryland.

Thanks for your support,

Doug

P.S. Jolene was on The Kojo Nnamdi show today. You can hear the interview here: http://thekojonnamdishow.org/shows/2013-10-25/politics-hour-oct-25-2013. She’s much better with words than I am.
