Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving! Yes, we know it's not Maryland.

    Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

    It’s been an exciting and pretty crazy year in the world of Maryland government and politics – and we could all use a little rest. Here’s hoping that your holiday will be fun and peaceful.

    It’s been an exciting and pretty crazy year for us here at Maryland Matters as well, as we’ve progressed from a one-man blog to a fully-functioning, five-day-a-week news website. We thank you, our readers, for coming along with us on this journey – and we owe a lot of our success to you. We love the fact that you’re reading, engaging and commenting. For those of you who have contributed to the cause: words cannot even begin to express our gratitude. Your support is overwhelming.

    Like you, we hope to have a couple of quiet days this week – though we will post a few items on the website as news dictates. And we’ll gear up for more growth and excitement in the months ahead. We can’t wait for new county officials to take office, and we’re gearing up to provide comprehensive coverage of the 2019 General Assembly session. And who knows what surprises await? We look forward to staying in touch with you and keeping you apprised of our progress.

    Never hesitate to send feedback our way. We welcome it all, even criticism. We crave it, in fact, as much as we crave any Thanksgiving stuffing or a second helping of pie. Let us know what’s going on in your world, what we should be writing about, and how we can serve you better.

    Please have a wonderful holiday. Try to stay warm. Thank you for reading. We’ll talk to you in a few days!
