And exactly why are you posting on a Perry Hall patch? BTW Harford county also disqualified as Perry Hall.
Jason Ellis December 27, 2011 at 02:50 AM
This is the Bel Air Patch. From what my info says? Perry hall is Baltimore in my opinion. This is for the Harford County Folks.

Sorry for the confusion. This poll was cross-published on numerous Patch sites—one in Baltimore City, the three in Harford County and the eight in Baltimore County. I oversee the two areas as regional editor. I apologize for any confusion. —Doug

The only thing you need to apologize for, is Voopsie.

Doug, we don't live in a bubble, as many here would like to. No apology necessary.
