Upcoming Salisbury City Council Work Session a wish list for Campbellites & Cohenites

Boss Cohen

Salisbury, MD: Now that City Council President Terry Cohen has finally got an agenda in on time, it has given SAM I AM enough time to properly review the agenda for the the Work Session on July 5th, 2011.

As it appears, the items on here are the issues that get Camdenites excited and are regular topics at Camden Neighborhood Association meetings.

4:30 p.m. Follow-up on Ethics Ordinance – Council/Paul Wilber.

  • Ethics has always been an issue for Terry. She was the subject of an ethics hearing over a year ago.
  • Maybe the requirement that Brenda Colegrove attend Camden Neighborhood Association meeting should be discussed.

5:00 p.m. Follow-up on Tenants’ Rights Addendum – Council/Paul Wilber

  • Still trying to figure out the purpose of this and why Landlords should be required to provide this. The website addresses are so long it is ridiculous.

Debbie Campbell

5:30 p.m. Follow-up on Towing Ordinances – Council/Paul Wilber

  • Hopefully this will get resolved with some common sense.

5:55 p.m. BREAK (Debbie and Terry are providing cool-aid.
6:05 p.m. Code change to 5.22.270 Cable Television Franchise Fee (PAC14) – Pam Oland

  • This is an issue that needs to be left alone. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. If Jim vetoes this we will remove all negative images of him from this site.

6:15 p.m. Audit rebid – Pam Oland
6:25 p.m. Park and Flea Lease Agreement with Urban Salisbury – Pam Oland
6:35 p.m. Constituent Handicap Parking Request – Pam Oland
6:45 p.m. CDBG Revised Action Plan Consensus Request – Terry Cohen/Council

  • SAM I AM is going on record that these idiots have no clue what they are doing. “Let’s tell the Church Street and other minority areas in the city to go to hell because only Camden matters.” – alleged CNA bylaws.

6:55 p.m. Continuing discussion on Council Rules of Order – Council

  • Renamed Boss Cohen’s rules of order….


Moron Warning!

7:25 p.m. General discussion/upcoming agendas

  • Tim wants to know if Brenda Colgrove needs to be present when he visits Debbie’s house.

7:30 p.m. Adjourn

Moron Warning

Moron Warning!

The Moron Index

The events from this week have prompted us to issue a Moron Warning on Tim Spies. This individual is closely approaching official Moronic Status with his attack on the Adams, having head so far up Debbie Campbell’s ass that Bob Taylor is getting uncomfortable and G. A. Harrison is getting jealous. What about Bill Campbell you ask, well his relaxation techniques from the products he purchases on Maryland Ave, according to sources close the situation, have him cool with sharing, free love and all, you know.

Tim Spies Getting Off To A Good Start….

Tim Spies

Sarah Lake struck out again with horrible reporting and using Jim Ireton as a witness about people making faces is hypocrisy at it’s best. A more credible witness, who wishes to remain anonymous, has informed SAM. I. AM. that Mr. Ireton’s assessment of the situation is a bit off.

The following is a synopsis of the incident from a several witnesses that were in attendance: In regards to anyone able to observe if someone was making faces at someone, let’s take a look at the placement of people who were in attendance at the meeting. Ireton was seated in the Council President’s chair, and yes would have had a general view of the entire room, however he was focused on the task at hand. Tim Spies was seated off to the left and would have had a limited view of the council room to his right, specifically the window side of the room.

Kris Adams was seated somewhere in the middle of the room, slightly to Tim’s right and he may have been able to see her. Kris Adams’ daughter, according to witnesses who were sitting near her, claim she was sitting on the back row in the corner of the room, slightly out Tim Spies’ view. It would have been difficult for Tim to catch her facial expressions.

Fumdumbed, a commenter on the DT article stated, “I was present at the City Council re-organization meeting and to be fair, this isn’t what I recall happening. I was speaking with a friend of mine and we happened to be standing near this exchange between Mr. Spies and the Adams’. As I recall, Ms. Adams shook Mr. Spies hand and I was admittedly in shock when I heard him ask Ms. Adams if her daughter suffered from a medical condition (a neurological disorder that I will not restate as it might offend certain individuals) to which Ms Adams responded by introducing Tim to her daughter. They (Tim and Adams’ daughter) shook hands but I found both parties behavior odd in that the handshake continued for the duration of their conversation. At this point, I believe Tim asked the daughter the same question on the basis that she was making odd faces at him. I guess Ms. Adams thought that this was threatening? Idk…but it’s not exactly what I would consider ‘News’ ”

OCJules stated in the comments section, ” What kind of arrogance does it take for a public servant to lash out at any tax paying citizen like this? How disgusting….. and then for the Mayor to make a public statement attacking entire family of Salisbury. God help us!”

Jim Ireton

Ireton claims he witnessed the incident.  “The Adams’ family has a history of aggressive behavior with elected officials,” he said in a written statement. “I watched the family heckle and make faces at Councilman Spies. This behavior is par for the course.”

From the Mayor who makes faces at and rolls his eyes at Council Members and sighs in disgust when they talk, is very hypocritical. Ireton has been observed threatening, wagging his finger and yelling Kris Adams, Louise Smith and others. He has a history of being aggressive to citizens and business owners.

Where the $$$ Comes From – Only Swartz Is On It

Apparently Michael Swartz is the only one willing and truly analytical enough to properly handle the City Council Campaign Financials. However, Swartz did win the award for Political Quote of the Week:

“And a note to Tim Spies: this time when you cite my information, print the whole thing.”

In the classic Swartz style, few have the ability in the blogging world to properly put words together that make sense. Swartz gets across his feelings and his sense of humor in only the way he can do it.

So to Swartz, HERE, HERE!

Joe’s On Top, Tim’s On Bottom (From the Other Salisbury News)

Tim Spies earned the title of Master Chief Petty Officer during his time in the Navy. I wonder if we could give him the same title for his time in Salisbury too? Because that is what Tim Spies is- petty. Think we are being harsh? We don’t think so. Truth be told, we could call him a lot worse. Two nights ago at the Camden Neighborhood Association Forum, Tim Spies looked into the PAC 14 camera and promised the people of Salisbury that he (and his running-mate Terry Cohen) were ready to put all of the old issues behind them in favor of teamwork and professionalism. At the same time, only ten feet away from Tim, laying innocently on the table with all of the other candidates information, was an unsuspecting orange flyer.

What was on that flyer, you ask? Only the most vicious smear campaign to enter any church since the inquisition. Thats right people- there in God’s House, Spies was disseminating the names and addresses of his opponents campaign contributors to the public with explicit orders to have those random people tracked down and humiliated for having the audacity to support Boda and Dryden, instead of him.

>Will Louise Smith run for re-election?

>Of the likely candidates already being mentioned to run for Salisbury City Council, the question remains on whether Louise Smith will run for re-election. Rumors abound that Louise would not do very well and likely get embarrased – mainly by the lack of support.

The current stalemate between Louise and Mayor Jim Ireton has gotten tiresome and has been very embarrassing for the city. Many people view her as just as much of the problem as Ireton.

It is likely Terry Cohen will run to keep her seat. She may find that she falls into the same category as Louise and with businesses not very happy with her, she may discover that she will come in dead last.

Those that are highly likely to run are Tim Spies and Muir Boda. In fact one local business already has one of Boda’s signs in their window. Both are actively involved in many different causes and have been seen chumming around together.

Interesting names have popped up as possibly running such as Rick Insley, jr., P.J. Hannon, and a few others.
