The Chesapeake Bay Trust: So What is Really Happening With The Bay (E-24)

PROGRAMMING NOTE:  We will be releasing a special episode at 6pm on 2/9/17. Annapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides’ first interview after the firing of Police Chief Michael Pristoop. Please check back later this evening!

This week, the Maryland Crabs sit down with Dr. Jana Davis (who, we must say dispels all preconceived notions of what a “doctor” should be) who is the Executive Director of the Chesapeake Bay Trust.

We learn what the Trust does, how they are helping the Bay, and most importantly, how YOU can help the Bay as well.

Dr. Davis talks about the Bay Plate, your Maryland Tax Return, the grants they distribute, the types of projects they fund, and more.  The Trust is the money machine for boots in the water for the Bay. They find the money and dole it out to organizations looking to make a difference.

And–they do it on a shoestring with more than 90% of their income going right back into the Bay–that did not sound right, but you get the drift.

Sit back, and learn how the Chesapeake Bay is improving their grades with Dr. Jana Davis and the Chesapeake Bay Trust!

  • The Annapolis Film Festival was our guest last week. Give it a listen and see how this huge event morphed from an idea into a multi-day event drawing thousands to our little sleepy town by the Bay.
  • State Senator John Astle has been a fixture in Annapolis for decades. Now he wants to be Mayor of the City on the Bay. In his first public interview, Astle pulls no punches where he feels mayor Pantelides is falling down, and how he will make a difference.
  • She dances along Ritchie Highway and has a fascination with Madonna, Ke$ha, Brittney Spears, and Paula Abdul. Dale Crites, AKA Brittney Girl Dale, Madonna Girl Dale, Paula Girl Dale, and Ke$ha Girl Dale spills it all. From the sexual abuse suffered as young boy to the suicide of a close friend to his close relationship with the police and how he deals with people that are just plain intolerant.
