    Bill Cordwell speaks directly what is on his
mind, a fact that became apparent when he sat
                     down with The Courier late last
                     week. Maybe this comes from
                     having been a police officer for 23
                     years with the Baltimore County
                     Police Department.
                         Mr. Cordwell is running for a

were honored recently at the healthcare organization’s an-

than $400,000 in wages and benefits. In addition to their time,
the Auxiliary has also given financial support. Their annual
