Nancy Floreen blames citizens who uncovered scandal

County Council member Nancy Floreen blames the citizens who uncovered the Clarksburg Town Center scandal, and says they should be stuck with the bill.

A former Planning Board member, Floreen opposed reimbursing the Clarksburg Town Center Advisory Committee, the citizens' group that unmasked the official county wrongdoing. The Frederick News-Post quotes Floreen as saying, "The community members chose to use their time. Any costs that are associated should not be borne by the taxpayer."
