after 85 years living in the city of Westminster, I now live in Finksburg, Md. The only thing I regret is,that I cannot vote for the most qualified candidate Rebekah Orenstein. Past Mayors such as Matthews, Mathias, Bair Hahn and others who made the city great. With the election of Rebekah Orenstein , the Westminster City will flourish once again that all of its citizens will be proud to say that they live in Westminster, Maryland. residents of Westminster for a long time, citizens have not had too much to brag about. Property tax increase of fourteen cents and recently a new tax on rental of property. Overspending by the city council and with a the new Mayor, That will all change with the election of Rebekah Orenstein.
