Company owner Jenny Donaldson's donation of $10,000 in the last week of the program helps hundreds of seniors and families in need

(Annapolis, Maryland -  December 20, 2013) – Today County Executive Laura Neuman will visit Annapolis Micro Systems, a local computer company that stepped up with a generous donation of $10,000 to the county’s Holiday Sharing program.  Business owner Jenny Donald made the donation after reading a recent news story that the program was short of its goal of gift and food donations for about 1,200 families in Anne Arundel County in the last week before Christmas.

“Annapolis Micro Systems owner Jenny Donaldson, is a fine example of a great corporate citizen, and Anne Arundel County is fortunate to have business owners such as her who are willing to step up and set a tremendous example of what it really means to give selflessly during the holidays,” said Ms. Neuman “It is my honor to personally meet and thank this exemplary county resident and local business owner who encompasses the spirit of generosity and whose $10,000 donation is making a difference in the lives of local area families in need during the holidays.”

Anne Arundel Department of Social Services’ (DSS) Holiday Sharing program matches donors with a family or senior citizen in the county who needs help. Donors purchase and personally deliver food and/or gifts the week of Christmas.

Incorporated in 1982, Annapolis Micro Systems is a woman owned business on Admiral Cochrane Drive that produces computer circuit boards. Today’s visit by County Executive Neuman and Anne Arundel Economic Development President Ed Rothstein will also include a tour of the company’s facility which includes design labs and a surface mount assembly line.

Neuman, an outspoken Opponent of the Rain Tax, invited to Discuss the Subject


Annapolis, MD (December 16, 2013) – Viewers of the FOX business show, The Willis Report, will be able to see  Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman discussing Maryland's Rain Tax in the 6 p.m. hour of the show,  which airs on the Fox Business Network. The segment featuring Executive Neuman is expected to air 6:20 p.m.


Executive Neuman was invited to discuss her position on the Rain Tax issue since she has been an opponent of the tax before taking office in February, and subsequently vetoed the bill.

"I love the Chesapeake Bay and it is a national treasure, but we can't tax our way out of restoring it, much less put the burden of cleaning the Bay up on 10 jurisdictions in Maryland," Neuman said. "You can’t have a new tax every time you want to fix something. We have had 40 tax increases over the last 7 years and this tax is the largest tax increase in Maryland.  The Chesapeake Bay is a shared resource, and it should be a shared responsibility."


The Willis Report can be seen on the following cable channels:

Comcast: Channel 126 or 821 in HD

Verizon: Channel 117 or 617 in HD  

Broadstripe: Channel 129

County Executive Neuman Among Top Nominees; Winner to be Named New Year’s Day

Annapolis, MD (December 12, 2013) – County Executive Laura Neuman is one of 10 finalists for the Maryland Gazette’s first “Person of the Year” award. Last month, the newspaper queried readers, asking them to name persons who had a significant impact on their community. Nominees included educators; volunteers; police officers; public officials and public figures; community activists; students; and entrepreneurs. After paring down the list, the newspaper chose the top 10; two were nominated posthumously.
"I can't begin to express how humbled I am that our residents thought enough to recommend me for this terrific honor," said Executive Neuman. "To be compared to this impressive group gives me joy and makes me proud to serve as County Executive. I will be casting my vote for one of the other more deserving nominees for this lovely honor."

In recognizing Executive Neuman, the Gazette wrote: “How can you not be charmed by Laura Neuman’s story? A self-made woman, who became a millionaire business executive after dropping out of high school, she seemingly came from nowhere in February to win the role as Anne Arundel’s first appointed county executive.
“Stepping in after John Leopold’s conviction for abuse of his office and subsequent resignation, Neuman now seems to be everywhere. You can find her speaking to a neighborhood civic association or chamber of commerce, helping light the Christmas trees in Pasadena and Glen Burnie, or remaking county government with changes like getting the county to send emails to permit applicants instead of letters.”
In addition to Executive Neuman, other nominees include:
  • Louise DeJesu, Principal at Hilltop Elementary School
  • Glenda Gathers, Community activist
  • Victoria Hill, Northeast High School graduate
  • Bill Kraus and Steve Newton, Mission BBQ
  • Skylar Marion, Pasadena (Posthumous)
  • Sarah Shannon, Civic Activist (Posthumous)
  • Pete Smith, Former County Councilman
  • Lt. Steve Thomas, Anne Arundel County Police
  • Marge Torrance, Volunteer, O’Malley Senior Center
