Questions For Q&A

Leave yor questions here for tomorrow new q&a segment in the new studio..

Gaining Ground for Wicomico

Gaining Ground for Wicomico

Week eleven of the Legislative Session began with Chamber Crossover Date on Monday where we spent all day voting on bills in House Chamber so that they could move over and be introduced in the Senate.

Our Wicomico County Delegation bill, regarding Sunday hunting, passed in the House this week and will be heard in the Senate Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee on April 4. We are hopeful that the Senate will also pass it and we’re working hard to see that it does.

We met with the Director of Maryland Environmental Service, Roy McGrath to discuss a possible apprenticeship program for the State. Roy was one of the Governor’s former Deputy Chiefs of Staff and it was great to see him receive this appointment so that our office can continue working with him in his new role.

We had the opportunity to participate in “Foster Youth in Annapolis Shadow Day”. This allowed our office the pleasure of welcoming our new friend, Allayah, from Parkside High School. She tagged along with us and saw how things operate in the office and in the Environment and Transportation Committee.
We attended the Board of Public Works meeting on Wednesday where we discussed the Henry S. Parker Athletic Complex in Salisbury, the John A. Luetkemeyer, Sr. and Thomas F. Mullen, Jr. Legacy Center at the Ward Museum of Wildlife Art, and the Arthur W. Perdue Stadium. The Governor released his supplemental budget on Friday which includes the funding for our stadium’s upgrades and we are hopeful that the funding will remain intact through the legislative process. I posted video from the hearing on my Facebook page and encourage you to watch.
On Friday students from North Salisbury Elementary visited the State House. It was a great visit that coincided with our celebration of Maryland Day. I joined Governor Hogan, Senate President Miller, and Speaker Busch in welcoming people to the lobby area before a press conference celebrating Maryland Day and the unveiling of portraits of the Lords Baltimore.
These portraits are on loan from the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore and are hanging in the State House. We have a wonderful State House that is steeped in not just Maryland history, but also American history. I invite everyone to visit.
Our 2017 Scholarship Application is now available! If you live in District 38B and are interested in applying, please send an email to Carl.Anderton@house.state.md.us. Applicants must have plans to attend college in Maryland.
As always, if you would like to contact us with an idea, issue, or concern,
please either call: 410-841-3431 or email carl.anderton@house.state.md.us.

Protect Our Schools Act 2017


The Maryland Legislature has gone rogue and decided that they prefer to fall out of compliance with the Federally mandated Every Student Succeeds Act than have schools continue to emphasize the standardized testing requirements.

The impact on Maryland public schools is a guaranteed loss of $248 million in Title 1 funding. They did not include what additional funds may be lost due to the changes they made in how low-performing schools improvement plans would be adopted and implemented. The changes to this section will certainly be deemed out of compliance and will potentially result in more Title 1 money lost.

The loss of this money may not have a major impact on the Maryland counties that surround the DC area, but I venture to guess here on the shore the impact will be measurable. 

Governor Hogan has vowed to veto this bill.

Salisbury and Wicomico Fire Drama Comes Down To One Thing :EGO

So many years have gone by and I have watched the same drama pop up over and over from one location consistently over all that time, and that is drama when it comes to firefighting in the area.

Salisbury is a nice sized City who works a hybrid system that uses both paid and volunteer firefighters to keep the citizens safe. We also have many full Volunteer fire companies in the County that respond in more remote locations so everyone has protection. The City has the best equipment around obviously being financed by the largest City on the shore, so they respond to most of the calls around the area because they are always staffed and don't have to wait for volunteers to respond to their station to go to the call.

Volunteer stations usually rely on working people to be able get off work and respond to the headquarters to make the call run, and this is obviously going to delay a response. The City has not been properly reimbursed for all the assistance they make to the County and now we are asking for those funds. This is not an attack on the great volunteers around the area, it is just simply a budgetary issue.

What we get into however is volunteer and career guys using blogs to throw insults at he other when it comes to any issues that make the public eye. It has to be the Prima donna career guys, no it's the wannabe Volunteers...and back and forth it goes and the other website just lives rent free in your mind . Feelings get hurt, people who are supposed to go into a fire together and have each others back to save a life, call each other names as anonymous commenters,

This is main reason I usually stay out of the drama because I despise the child like behavior that comes from both sides. This latest episode with the Station 1 guys is just the final straw for me. The entire incident is just a battle of egos and is just another in a long line of disagreements between paid and volunteer firefighters. I have nothing but respect for both, however it is a fact paid guys have more training than volunteers. This would lend credence to the idea that they have more knowledge than the Volunteer guys. It isn't a knock, trust me it's just simple facts with what is out there.

Volunteers should be appreciated for putting their lives on the line for free, and taking time out of their lives to rush to someones aid. Career guys should be respected for their knowledge and ability to teach others proper firefighting techniques.

The guys at Station 1 who tried to pull this latest stunt let one thing dictate their emotions...their egos. They didn't like Rick Hoppes or the way the Station was run and they didn't want to take orders from him anymore. They had no plans in place and just figured they could just use the City equipment until July and not take any orders while doing so. I mean really? Corey Polidore the "leader" of this group rode around and took photos to send to the other blogger the day of the Mayors press conference, so what does that show you? Those are actions of a child, one that is gonna show them by snapping photos of them from a  distance, so they can be made fun of.

When you have someone like that as a representative of guys who are supposed to be grown adult men, you should worry. This entire event is just another black eye on our City and our Fire Department. Instead of throwing a fit to get your way, do the proper thing and understand if you want to be a Salisbury firefighter in any capacity you have to report to the Fire Chief who is Rick Hoppes. I am sure many don't like him, and that is  fine but you still have to respect the position .

The Station one guys because of bruised egos, now are begging around trying to find someone to build them their own Fire Station and buy them their own toys to use so they can stick it to Hoppes. This takes MONEY, money County taxpayers do not have so someone can feed their ego and Polidore can make himself Emperor of their own Fire Station.

All this Drama comes down to one thing....EGO.
