Biography of Charles Bailey from Friends For Charles Bailey
“Hello, my name is Charles Bailey.
I am a single father of two (one of whom is off to college), and a veteran with a history of public service. I graduated from Boonsboro High School, and returned to Washington County in 2005.
I feel lucky to live in the most beautiful area of the country,
but it is hard. My business is putting out fires for people as a lawyer in Hagerstown. I am in private practice now, after serving five years as a felony lawyer with the Public Defender here.
My work shows me how our economic decay has hurt those least able to withstand it—our unemployed moms and dads, and grandparents raising another family on their retirement because our kids are lost in guilt, low self-esteem, and hopelessness. We need to ask:
- Why have we not increased the daycare tax deduction?
- Why can’t we study what tax breaks will bring jobs here?
- Why can’t we reduce the interest on student loans?
- Why can’t we go to other places and learn how they are thriving in this economy?
- Why do we not have a rapid bus or a light rail between Frederick and Shady Grove?
- Why can’t we study Smart Growth?
- Why not study sustainable energy sources?
- Why not encourage clean manufacturing contracts with bio-tech and medical labs in neighboring counties?
- Why not put a solar hot water heater atop every school?
Together, there is plenty we can do to encourage new, clean and good paying jobs right here in Washington County.”
