Concerning Tuesday’s article, “Group gives advice to reduce emissions,” is Frederick County listening?

This “climate change working group of Frederick County” works on the effects of climate change on Frederick County but yet the Frederick County Planning Commission is considering yet another gas station (Circle K) be built in a high traffic area within a stone’s throw of a townhouse and condo community, approximately a mile from Tuscarora High School and right across the street from Ballenger Creek Park.

Seems like Frederick County is doing their part to add to the pollution before this deadline of 2050!

The planning commission’s virtual meeting is scheduled for Sept. 9 at 9:30am. Those wishing to express their concerns and opinions should address by Sept. 4 to, case#SP258845.

Frederick is being inundated with gas stations and certainly should not be built in populated residential areas and certainly not across from a county park.

Hi, Mz. Sandra

My name is Iyo Stephensbailey and I will be running a campaign for District Two's county council position in 2022. One of the core fundamental ideas I have is building a cleaner, more reliable world for our humankind. Even if you don't believe in climate change you have to accept the fact that we will run out of fossil fuels one day.

I want to provide legislation to put Frederick County on the path of having all of its public and economic buildings switch to renewable energy sources by 2040 and I'd like to bring you in on the idea. Renewable energy could bring a whole host of jobs to the county and will make us less reliable on a not-so-sturdy national/international oil market.

My number is 2027901266 if you would like to talk more. I'm always open for a good discussion whether you are conservative OR liberal. You can also reach me at my email address

Thank you,

Mr. Stephensbailey


Wouldn't it be nice for them to put in charging stations for EVS that are coming. A few 220 lines and some fast chargers (440) lines.

They could top it off with solar panels for the charging.
