Serving The Community

With over 35 years of experience both inside and outside of government in addition to volunteer activities, Doug Zinn has dedicated himself to providing resources for residents to lead rewarding and productive lives.

Our Common Goals

We are all united by common needs and interests that provide us with a sustainable community lifestyle, security, reasonable taxes, more resources for recreation, training and jobs, safe schools, smart land conservation, and timely and improved communications.

Our Taxes 

We  deserve more from our tax dollars and Doug Zinn will work to eliminate the monthly "911" fee and reduce recordation taxes on home sales.  

Our Schools

Doug will work to support the return of expanded class schedules at all high schools; enhance school security with special classes and counseling for disruptive students; and do his best  to secure adequate funding for a new Dulaney High School.  

Our Seniors

Doug will seek funding for increased hours and resources at all Senior Centers.  And most importantly, he will work to establish part-time jobs for active Seniors with County agencies and local businesses.

Our Land

The motto "do no harm" will drive efforts to increase protection of our rural and agricultural land.  Furthermore, development of more parking adjacent to the NCR trail for increased numbers of hikers and cyclists will help protect nearby homeowners.  

Our Communications

Doug will be certain to provide you with advance notification of Council meetings with information on the  issues to be discussed, potential impact on residents and costs/benefits to the community.
