Use local workers in building new Baltimore Pike travel stop

— Dear Messrs. Love & Stussi:

As a delegate to the Maryland General Assembly representing Allegany County, and specifically the City of Cumberland, I welcome you to our community as you prepare to construct a Love’s Travel Stop at the above referenced location (on Baltimore Pike).

On behalf of my constituency, I deeply appreciate your investing in our community and wish you the utmost success in this travel center venture.

Additionally, as a state legislator, I offer the services of this office to assist in resolving unanticipated permitting issues which you may encounter with various state departments and agencies.

Aside from welcoming you to Allegany County and offering the assistance of this legislative office, I take this opportunity to respectfully encourage your utilization of Allegany County contractors and subcontractors in the construction of this Love’s Travel Stop.

Additionally, I would strongly encourage Love’s exclusive utilization of the “local” membership of the Western Maryland Building & Construction Trades Council (WMBCTC) in the construction of this travel stop.

The tradesmen of WMBCTC are renowned for their quality and efficiency of construction. Utilization of the local skilled craftsmen of the WMBCTC ensures not only quality construction, but that wages paid to these tradesmen will directly benefit the Allegany County community.

Specifically, I wish to emphasize these WMBCTC members pay taxes in the Allegany County community and spend their wages benefiting an array of Allegany County businesses, which will include the new Love's Travel Stop. Finally, be assured your utilization of these local tradesmen will be deeply appreciated and long remembered by the citizens of Allegany County.

Once again, welcome to our community and if I can be of assistance, please contact me at the District Office address reflected on this letterhead.

Delegate Kevin Kelly

  • Remember, we’re not immune to extinction

    I’d like to pose a theoretical scenario to Cal Thomas.

    If a medical specialist said, “Cal, you’ve got a serious physical problem. Do nothing and you’ll die soon. Follow my prescription, which involves certain life-style changes, and there’s a good probability you’ll live, even if your life may be a bit more constrained than now.”

  • Tell legislators to do what is right for America’s vets

    Without our veterans and those who made the ultimate sacrifice, where would America be today? It is anyone’s guess, however certainly not the Freedom and Liberty we enjoy.

  • Move over Move over

    Have you noticed, in your travels, that the front end of a police cruiser usually protrudes a bit more than you would expect when the officer has it parked behind another vehicle on the side of the road?

  • Citizens should be more ready to deal with power failures

    An open letter to the electrical power companies in West Virginia and Maryland:
    The return of electrical power to my home recently, after its unexpected failure for approximately 48 hours, as a result of such a sudden and violent storm, reminded me anew of how much I take for granted.

  • Scare tactics, misinformation abound regarding marijuana

    In response to Frank J. Clark’s well intentioned letter, “Don’t be too quick to legalize marijuana use,” July 10 Times-News), I believe that his letter misses the point of legalizing and regulating marijuana.

    Perhaps our society should consider some facts before jumping on the bandwagon for legalizing recreational marijuana use.
