       Barry Donadio For Queen Anne’s County 
              Commissioner District 3
                     Strong Conservative Leadership Backed By 
        Over 20 Years Of Public Service Experience

Under my leadership, the safety and welfare of the people of Queen Anne’s County will be my top priority. I will move forward making our county a place we can all safely live, work and play. My administration will focus on increasing opportunity for sustainable business growth, while protecting our vital environment, our waterways and the Chesapeake Bay. Our county is the jewel and gateway to the Eastern Shore of Maryland and I will work to maintain its beauty.

                Keeping Our Schools Safe

I have two beautiful daughters currently attending Queen Anne’s County Schools. I support our schools and applaud the steps already taken to keep our children safe and well educated, but there is always more that can be done and I will get it done. I want Police Officers in all of our schools (including the elementary schools). I am going to also increase and improve physical security integrated with information technology security systems. This will allow law enforcement to be notified in real-time in order to decrease response time and mitigate injuries to our school staff and children. I will sort at no length to keep our children safe.

                                          Fix The Traffic
I will no longer permit the residents of our county to be prisoners to dreadful traffic conditions. My plan will include creating and implementing a proven innovative traffic incident management strategy for the present and future to prevent prolonged traffic congestion in our county. Reconsideration of the Cox Creek Connector and other ways to relieve traffic are in my plan. 
                                             Job Creation
My goal is to create more medium to upper wage jobs for our county. I want to provide residents the opportunity to obtain prosperous employment without a long commute. I plan to invite reputable defense companies to our county’s industrial parks, to increase the opportunity of good paying jobs for our residents. Being a small business owner, I know how hard it is to start and maintain a profitable business.  I want to provide free business training to all our business entrepreneurs to get them on the right track for success. I will also make it easy for all businesses in the county to grow and flourish.  I will work with our local business organizations and the Chamber of Commerce to incorporate new ideas that will vitalize county small businesses.
                                      Keeping Taxes Low
I don’t like taxes anymore than the next person. My agenda is to keep taxes as low as possible. Fiscal responsibility is high on my priority list. Wasteful spending will be stopped under my administration, and money will be appropriated to ensure efficient and purposeful use of our tax dollars. Under my leadership, our county will no longer be raked over the coals regarding expenses. I will oversee our county’s finances with line by line budget itemization and make appropriate changes to keep taxes low.  
                 Hard Stance Against Crime & Heroin
The plague of our current generation is heroin and opioid addiction and I am going make this crisis a top priority in my administration. I will give our Law Enforcement authorities the financing and cooperation to hunt down drug dealers and hold them accountable to the fullest extent of the law. I will work to increase support and cooperation with all other Police agencies that patrol our county. I will petition the Board of Education to increase anti-drug education at younger ages, to warn our children of the horrors of this addiction. I am going to create a bipartisan panel of persons that include those who were formerly addicted to drugs and Law Enforcement Officers. This panel would advise my administration on solutions to solving the increasing problem in our county. Those already addicted will get the full support of my administration to help them in their recovery and path to future success.  The front-line defense of our county against crime and drug use are the First Responders. I will support these dedicated men and women, by making sure they have all the equipment necessary to do their difficult jobs. Under my administration there would be more Law Enforcement Officers patrolling our county. I will support the Sheriff’s Department in their new Cadet program and their Reserve Deputy program.
