Governor Taps Alderman Carol Krimm to Serve on Local and Regional Transportation Funding Task Force

Frederick, MD – Frederick City Alderman Carol Krimm was recently tapped by Governor Martin O’Malley to serve on the Local and Regional Transportation Funding Task Force. Krimm, along with other local and State representatives, will study and make recommendations on the range of options available to county and municipal governments to generate resources to fund transit service and highway projects.

“Progress begins in Maryland’s counties. The Local and Regional Transportation Funding Task Force is comprised of talented and experienced State and local officials, and will help determine the best ways to support regional and local transportation system needs,” said Governor O’Malley. “Together we can continue to make the better choices to invest in the future of Maryland’s transportation network, allowing us to create more jobs for our hardworking families and rebuild our State’s Infrastructure.”

“Thank you to Governor O’Malley for the opportunity to work with regional elected officials and the Governor’s staff to study and make recommendations on funding mechanisms to address transportation infrastructure. Adequate transportation infrastructure is important for economic development opportunities, public safety, and quality of life for all Marylanders. My role on the Maryland Municipal League (MML) legislative committee and the Transportation Planning Board enhances my understanding of the importance of a functional transportation network.” said Alderman Krimm.

The Task Force will study and make recommendations on the feasibility of creating regional transit financing entities and local-option transportation revenues for the purpose of raising additional funds to support regional and local transportation system needs throughout the State.

This task force was created as part of the Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act of 2013 (Transportation Act) signed into law on May 16th. The Transportation Act will support 57,200 jobs and invest a total of $4.4 billion over the next six years (FY 2014-2019), to enable Maryland to build a balanced 21st century transportation system.

Appointees to the Task Force in addition to Alderman Krimm include:

• Matthew D. Gallagher, President and CEO of The Goldseker Foundation
• Transportation Secretary James T. Smith, Jr.
• Senator Richard S. Madaleno, Jr.
• Senator George C. Edwards
• Delegate Tawanna P. Gaines
• Delegate A. Wade Kach
• William S. Ratchford, II, Baltimore City Mayor’s Office
• Lonnie Robbins, Chief Administrative Officer, Howard County
• Richard M. Pollitt, Jr., Wicomico County Executive
• Denise Mitchell, Councilmember, City of College Park

Matthew D. Gallagher will serve as Chair of the Task Force. The Task Force is charged with studying the feasibility of using alternative financing mechanisms to help deliver regional and local transportation projects. The Task Force will submit a final report of its findings and recommendations to the Governor and General Assemble by December 5, 2013.
