Cove Road Issue Getting Worse

SAM. I. AM. has learned that the County has cut down brush on wetlands in an attempt to create more space for parking. The MDE is looking into the situation.

County officials have directly ignored property owners near the beach and are disregarding their concerns. The arrogance that is being displayed by public officials is unacceptable and we will be exposing this issue more in the coming weeks.

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!

>Disappointment and the Red Tide

>As a large financial Contributor to Frank Kratovil’s campaign, disappointment does not express the mood the Wizard has been in lately. The Red Tide has cast a blue shadow over the Wizard’s heart.

Andy Harris was a horrible candidate for the Republican Party and people must have had to hold their noses from the stench when they voted for him. How can those people sleep at night after sending an egotistical idiot like that to Washington? They might as well have sent Albero to Congress.

At least Uncle Norm got through and is controlling the purse strings. Just give us our Highway User funds back so Pollitt can fix the damn roads and quit whining about the Revenue Cap.

Six Republicans on the Wicomico County Council resembled a nightmare the Wizard had this past summer, maybe it was vision. Worst of all Stevie Prettyman got re-elected, Tramp Stamp and all on the old hag. If the Wizard had realized that, he would have seen to it the Boat Building Pirate from Nanticoke had the funds to crush her. Maybe Gail Bartkovich will have a wild sex party celebration over Holidays after this big victory.

Even worse than Tramp Stamp Stevie (TSS from now on) getting re-elected is the Lower Shore Slime Ball slithering in to Annapolis, yes folks Mayor and Deputy Mike McDermott is your new Delegate for 38B. Congratulations you bunch of dumb ass idiots.

As far as the Governor’s race, well the Wizard couldn’t bring himself to vote for O’Malley or Ehrlich and did it ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ style voting and ended up going Green shouting “Run Ralph Run” (nostalgia from Nader presidential runs for you young folks).

Since the Wizard spent the election season working hard on Frank Kratovil’s campaign, which is why he was not posting on the blogosphere, he will now spend his time calling out stupidity where he sees it. Look out Albero, G.A., Ireton, Harris, McDermott, TSS, Mathias, Colburn, Seth Mitchell, Joe Collins, Salisbury City Council (minus Comegys who is a great guy and benefactor of my contributions) and the rest of the idiots that think they know it all. Albero’s wrath is nothing compared to the Wizard’s……. you have been warned.

>Oh Snap… Missed Rick Pollitt On PAC-14

>Rick Pollitt was on One-on-One with the Great Phil Tilghman last night. We here at Delmarva Views like Phil Tilghman and his show. He certainly ranks in greatness with Mike Dunn, Marvin Long, Jim Rapp, and Tony Sarbanes. Give John Cannon and Bill McCain a couple of more years and they have the potential to reach that level of greatness.

Back to Rick Pollitt. I assume a conversation with Pollitt will most certainly need some cheese as it will probably drift in the direction of everything that is wrong with the Revenue Cap. Again Rick, the Revenue Cap is there to keep the government under control. It is doing everything we wanted it to do and we will fight to keep it there.

>The Future of Local Politics

>Certainly 2010 and 2011 will be interesting when it comes to local politics. Who runs and who wins. Who supports whom will be interesting as well. There are many questions surrounding the upcoming election season.

  • What will Mike Dunn decide to do?
  • Will Barrie run for County Council or a State seat?
  • Will Muir Boda run for County Council or wait for 2011 and run for City Council again?
  • Will Stevie Prettyman get re-elecetd?
  • Will John Cannon challenge Rick Pollitt?
  • Will Charles Jannace take another shot at the top County spot?
  • Will GA Harrison put or shut up and run for County Council?
  • Is Mike Lewis still electable, if not who will challenge him?
  • Can the revenue cap get repealed or are County Voters smart enough to not fall for fear mongering?
  • Is Brad Gillis a likely candidate for City Council or will his father make a return to Salisbury Politics?
  • Is Bryan Brushmiller electable or will the Republican Party not support him after his breakdown and quick drop out from the 2009 City Council race?
  • Can a schizophrenic blogger from Delmar have any impact on the County election with his so called millions of visitors?

Many more questions and names will of course come up and the pot is definitely going to get stirred up.

>The New Library – Looking to the Future

>Forward looking individuals is what we need in leadership now. The proposal from the Friends of the Library are people just like that, those that look to the future. Swapping the parking lot on the corner of 13 & 50 with the existing Library Building is good deal for the city. It is a perfect solution for building a much needed new library.

The current Library is located in the old Armory building. It has been retrofitted and remodeled however they have out grown this building. The main concern for a Library is the consideration of the weight of all the books and care in setting the standards for construction are paramount. Building a modern Library from the ground up is the best solution.

As we look to create an environment in the Downtown Corridor, a new state of the art Library will continue to draw thousands of people to the Salisbury. Input from the citizens and business community is necessary in this process and we encourage everyone to get involved in the process.

>WICOMICO: Budget sails to passage today

>Trimming the budget to what was available is the right thing to do. Continually whining and crying about the revenue cap is not going to change the fact that you cannot spend money you don’t have.

Here is the Daily Times article that will provide more details on Wednesday.
SALISBURY — The Wicomico County Council today adopted a $124.6 million budget for next year that avoids employee furloughs, but defers payments to employee retirement funds.

There were a lot of things on the table that a year ago, I’d never had thought we’d support,” County Executive Richard M. Pollitt Jr. told council members after they unanimously voted in favor of the budget, with no discussion.

Starting July 1, the property tax rate will drop to about 76 cents per $100 of assessed property. This year’s rate fell by five-and-a-half cents, due to charter restrictions under the revenue cap.
