Leggett Defies Council, Delegation on Helicopters (Updated)

In blatant defiance of both the County Council and the Montgomery Delegation, the Leggett administration has decided to proceed with its acquisition of police helicopters. A source with knowledge of this decision states, "It is confirmed that the county has acquired two helicopters and assigned an officer to an informal 'aviation' job. They are going to keep the helicopters at the M-NCPPC Norwood facility."

We await the blowback. No doubt, the Lords of Annapolis are celebrating as they plot to hand down teacher pensions. After all, if MoCo can afford helicopters, why not pensions too?

Update: The Examiner confirmed our story.
