"If you have a garden and a library,
you have everything.
- Marcus Tullius Cicero
About the Campaign for
Parks & Libraries
Dorchester County voters have already approved expanding parks and libraries. That prior voter referendum; however, was overturned by the courts.
This year - on November 5th, 2019 - Dorchester County voters will have the opportunity to once again invest in both parks and libraries. This time the plans are even better.
The parks preserve more green space, stops more development, and creates recreation facilities for us to enjoy year round.
The libraries create a network of facilities equipped to handle the 21st century and create engaged citizens from the youngest to the oldest and all of those in between. All of this starts with your vote of 'Yes' on November 5th.
