Jennifer Popkin "The health benefits and consumption of chocolate".

Mr. McIntire is a father of five daughters, has five grandchildren and lives with his wife, Doris, and two dogs in Timonium. Summary of Legislative Accomplishments:

  • Promoting a plan for adequate public facilities - the County should not proceed with the development of plans until we are certain we have adequate support facilities for growth - including schools, roadways, power, water, and more
  • Improving our public education system - legislation I sponsored provides monthly accounting to document the use of county funds, insure fiscal responsibility, and allocate more money directly into the classroom
  • Fostering economic and employment development in the County
