HCDCC Statement on Councilman Jacob Bennett Filing Counterclaim Against Harford County
Councilman Jacob Bennett has filed a counterclaim against the County Executive, and is “asking the court to issue a temporary then permanent order to stop the county from taking further actions to block him from serving in office.” In the meantime, the County Executive continues to impede his ability to perform the duties of his office, represent his constituents, and exercise the necessary checks and balances on the County’s Executive branch.
We urge all citizens of Harford County to call and email the offices of the County Executive and the Council President to demand that the Executive remove all unilaterally imposed restrictions on Councilman Bennett’s ability to serve the Citizens of District F and the County as a whole.
County Executive Bob Cassilly
President of the County Council Patrick Vincenti
