THE INAUGURATION OF BARACK OBAMA

Hopes and fears for the new administration

Daily Record reporters asked members of Maryland’s business and legal communities what their hopes and fears were as Barack Obama takes the oath of office as the 44th president of the Unit- ed States at noon on Tuesday.

We have great hopes for the new president. Despite

the challenging eco- nomic times, people are excited about the future and what this change represents. As a city

that depends on a vibrant

tourism industry, it is more im- portant than ever to restore

consumer confi- dence and get peo- ple spending again.

President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden wave to the crowd Saturday at the MARC train station in Edgewood en route to Washington for Tuesday’s inauguration.

Thinking long term we are hopeful that we

can both revital- ize the economy and transi- tion into a clean energy economy. Our goals are very much in line with what Pres- ident-elect Obama has been saying. He wants to double our alternative energy over

the next three years; he wants to create or sustain over 4 million new jobs. It can happen if we’re careful about the steps

we take now to revitalize our economy.

  • “Some of his focus is right on in infras- tructure, es- pecially trans- portation,
    which is terri- bly important in Maryland. I’m hopeful that his emphasis on in- frastructure would allow us to complete some worthy projects, like the Red Line. … One thing you have to recognize is the huge amount of stimulus that’s being put forward today may have some adverse consequences down the road in terms of inflation. You want to make sure there are no side effects of the fiscal drug we’re about to take.”

“I have great hope and ex- pectations. I think that, of course, he will grasp the ne-

problem of the

country. ...

I look

for him to, as Bush tried to say

earlier, have a kinder, gentler ad- ministration in terms of helping the disadvantaged. I look for the Justice Department to be com- pletely reversed in its involvement in human rights and civil rights. And I look forward to his Supreme Court appointments.”

[The administration should] per- mit a path to legalization for people that are already here. I think, es- pecially in this last year, we’ve seen that the destruction of families and just blanket sweep of people out of the U.S … is costing our economy dearly. You’ve got U.S. farmers that are refusing to grow crops because they have no one to harvest them.

That’s insane.”

  • America. The focus is on the importance of health care to every American both in terms of their economic and per- sonal security. We’re seeing the Obama administration bring a set of thought leaders that holds the promise of having a much-needed collective conversation about how to best change the health care sys- tem in America. They provide the opportunity for the critical con- versation that many people have been waiting for.”

There’s really been a broad band of people rallying around him and that’s a good thing because it brings people together instead of fighting him.”

Simply put, it’s good old American capitalism, and Maryland merchants have been finding ways to cash in big. While Tuesday’s inauguration of Barack Obama as president of the United States symbolizes, to many, the realization of an American dream, for re- tailers it represents a chance to breathe some life

into their struggling industry and promote any-

thing and everything Obama-related — right down

to cupcakes and baseballs. Top-selling items have been T-shirts and other

commemorative gear, which has had screeners busy filling orders for weeks. Kevin Fulmer, co-owner of Screen Designs & Promotions, said the demand has driven huge spikes in his business during a month that is typi- cally quiet. He said his Davidsonville business has had more than 300,000 Web hits since mid-De- cember and has sold nearly 10,000 items in the

“I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how the president-elect’s administration has already [begun working] on the economy, which is the No. 1 issue for the country. I’m also hopeful that the Obama administration will tackle the … deficit, Social Security and health care issues that the country needs to have addressed. I think the onus is going to be on Congress to put partisanship aside.”

Local law enforcement worked with the Secret Service during President-elect Barack Obama’s rolling stop in Edgewood on Saturday.

“I think really we’re just looking to see an at- titude of making investments in areas that will spur the economy and doing so as quick- ly as possible, [such as] transportation, hous- ing, public education building, water and sewer. There’s a lot of things that we could use some significant investment in and would help us address these problems.”

“For retailers, we certainly hope the stimulus package gets consumers spending again and that it works. Not much else is going to be good or helpful for us until we can get the economy back on track, especially because the first half of the year is going to be very tough for our industry.”

“I guess everybody has a lot of hopes and we all wish him great success. From our in- dustry perspective, our greatest concern is economic conditions. The Columbia Bank would very much like continued em- phasis on the stimulus package and what we can to do to help the industry through this rough time.”

“I think we’ll see an energy policy that will encourage renewables. I would hope that he would also continue with what he talked about in the campaign, which was not mak- ing renewables the only option, but making it so that renewables and other energy sources are part of the mix along with tra- ditional resources. Everyone expects that climate change policy will come down fair- ly early in the administration and that it will be a national approach rather than a state-by-state approach, which would be pretty welcome. I think in the next four years those of us in the energy industry will be very busy.”

“In terms of our industry, there’s a lot of dis- cussion about the stimulus [package]. Jim Rouse [the late developer and urban vi- sionary] used to say that every challenge is just an opportunity in disguise. I think there’s an incredible amount of opportuni- ty coming out of the $850 billion or trillion- dollar stimulus package, if we’re smart about it. I think the key thing in the stimu- lus is to be thoughtful and creative about how we invest those dollars for big-time impact, not just in creating a few con- struction jobs, but really teeing up the per- manent jobs, so that the stimulus is not just used to repave a few highways in the

“It’s exciting from our perspective, to see that affordable housing is even an issue being addressed. But even that is just a di- alogue that was used in the presidential debates, that it’s a national issue that used to be largely just a grassroots discussion. From what we’ve seen of the Obama ad- ministration, we think he will be committed to affordable housing, not only what to do with all the vacant properties that have been left behind by the foreclosure crisis to people who need and want decent and af- fordable housing, it’s an issue.”

In my 20 years here, it’s the first presidential inauguration that I’ve seen any interest and involvement.

That’s the kind of uniter we need. … He’s not going to solve all the problems and he’s going to make mistakes, but they’ll be well-meaning mistakes. I’ll be happy if when he leaves office we’re in a much better position economically and we’ve solved the wars on two fronts. I hope we become a kinder nation.
