LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Pastor Fenrick Keeping MLK’s Dream Alive

Thanks for the story about Pastor Angeloyd Fenrick that was featured in the Jan. 18 issue of The Informer. Who knew that one of Dr. King’s foot soldiers lives amongst us today? Her story of the courage instilled by her parents and the words she heard from Dr. King are life lessons that still ring true today. Her work with the homeless is inspiring. Everyone needs help at some point in their life. Hopefully people in our area, young and old, will hear her speak and are then encouraged to keep the dream alive.

Discover Bailing Out; Can We Afford to Keep Them Here?

I live in Montgomery County but even I was both surprised and saddened to learn about Discovery’s move from our county to New York City as reported in the Jan. 18 issue of The Washington Informer. What is even more distressing is knowing that, according to public officials, they were offered one of the largest financial incentives ever from the state and county to stay here. I will admit that I am not clear what is included in the business incentives that are offered to keep or lure businesses to our area. So, I wonder if when officials offer seemingly unlimited funds to lure high-revenue generating businesses, what happens with the needs of current residents, our public schools or housing initiatives. Meanwhile, how will Marriott use the $62 million in incentives they received to stay in Bethesda? Will they open up more jobs for Montgomery County residents? We deserve to know.
