Who's Next?

With Gary Mackes upcoming retirement and Rick Pollitt eliminating the Public Information Officer position on the Eve of Culver's swearing in, the question now is - Who's next?

A post we put up a month ago may be worth looking at again. Others may announce their retirement or there will be announcements that they are not getting reappointed.

One seat that appears to not be safe is Director of Public Works Lee Beauchamp, which initially appeared to be safe and is now in Culver's crosshairs.

Much of these announcements will like be in early January. Though contrary to what people say about him, Culver has a heart and will likely wait until after Christmas to make announcements.

One side note on the elimination of the PIO position - Pollitt did that in order for Tamara Lee-Brooks to easier qualify for unemployment. If she had been terminated under the scrutiny of the email scandal she would likely have had to fight for it and may not have received it.

Salisbury PD set to Increase Number of Women on Force

LES News has learned that the Salisbury Police Department has hired at least 6 women for the upcoming Police Academy that starts in January. The January class will see those recruits in uniform and in training by June of 2015.

In a time when there is call for more diversity in Law Enforcement, SPD is taking action and hiring qualified candidates. There is always a need for minorities and women in Law Enforcement, however they can only hire them if people from those backgrounds apply.

We applaud SPD for being proactive and taking steps to diversify their ranks.

How Time Flies 6 Year Anniversary

Time really flies these days with this marking the 6th year of my site.

Do I enjoy it as much now as years in the past? It depends. I don't enjoy the politic side of things as they always get petty and personal . I do enjoy helping people by getting information about what's happening around them.

This has been a good year with my joining forces with WGMD and has seen a great many big stories.

In 2015 I'm making a commitment to put less of my personal feelings into my posts and just report and let you decide. If I feel the need to vent I will make it an editorial

With my contributors helping me out by taking the politics on ,it enables unbiased coverage and if you have noticed much more variety of comments.

I want to thank each and every one of you for visiting my site and making me the most followed local blog on Facebook

I have had many personal things happening that have taken time away from this, but family always will come before this .

I do really thank you again for coming here for your news and look forward to providing even better stuff in 2015

New School Board Appointees Need to be Fiscally Responsible

Sometime next year Governor-Elect Larry Hogan will be appointing individuals to the Wicomico County Board of Education. We truly need individuals who make it a priority to ensure our not only that our students are safely educated but that we good of the buildings they are educated.

For years the BOE has allowed students to go to schools that are in deplorable condition. They always hold off on repairs and remodeling current schools and instead fight to spend tens of millions dollars on brand new schools. Their irresponsible actions continue to drive the debt of the county and the state.

Certainly it is time for an elected school board but in the meantime Govern Hogan will need to appoint individuals who represent the fiscal conservative desires of the voters in Wicomico County. Here are a few names that we think should be considered:

Julie Brewington
Dr. Mark Edney
Shawn Jester
John Palmer
Muir Boda
Ann Suthowski
Dr. Greg Belcher
Bob Laun

Many of these individuals have been on record as supporting fiscal responsibility within the board of education and would most certainly remove the "Yes Man" mentality from the board.
