Don Dwyer was not present during the General Assembly's special session. That's right; when 138 of the 141 members of the House of Delegates voted on rate relief for BGE customers and on a bill to deal with child sex offenders, Don Dwyer did not bother to show up.
I think that pretty much sums up how Don Dwyer feels about the people of District 31. Two major issues that will impact every one of his constituents, and he blows it off. As the Capital notes, Dwyer was on a "previously scheduled vacation." He'll try and use his European adventure as an excuse, but it isn't like they decided on Tuesday to go into session Wednesday.
Frankly, there is no excuse for Don Dwyer to choose being on vacation in Europe over being at work to deal with the issues the legislature was considering. Dwyer abdicated his responsibility and failed the people of our district. The stakes were too high for District 31 to not be fully represented.
