Controversy At Crisfield Elks

A big rift has opened up in Crisfield involving the local elks chapter. It seems that the Grand Lodge would like to suspend Erik Emily for 3 years for his arrest for solicitation of prostitution charge that he is on probation for. Some local members are upset by this decision as they were about to make Erik the head of the local chapter. Should someone that has put a black eye on the City with his behavior and arrest be allowed to continue as part of the elks?

Mike McDermott Another Example Of Poor Decision Making

In an effort to show you some poor decisions that Mike McDermott has made to show why he should not be making decisions in Annapolis, I want to share a a story from a Mother who had dealings with him as a Deputy.

The Lady had a Daughter by a Deputy Buddy of McDermott, but due to Marital problems they divorced and the Daughter had nothing to do with her Father. The new Husband of the Lady legally adopted her Daughter and was the only Father the Girl wanted.

Well it seems that one day according to the Mother, at Stephen Decatur High School McDermott shows up goes to the girls classroom and tells her her Father needs to see her. The girl thinking the man she considered her Father was in trouble gathered her stuff up and started to follow Deputy McDermott out of the School.

The birth Father had tried to come get her before which had prompted the girls Mother to alert the School that he had no legal rights according to the Courts to be there. That day Ms McHenry happened to be in the Office and saw McDermott escorting her out of the School and knowing of the issues immediately stopped McDermott from leaving the School with her.

The Mother was called and was mortified to find that McDermott without finding out all the information about the circumstances had decided to help his buddy out at the Sheriff's Department by coming to the School to get her .

Ask yourself is this the kind of person you want as a State Senator? one that can't even use good judgement to find out all the particulars before doing something like that?

The Problem With Billy McDermott

Let me state very clearly I believe Billy McDermott is a good person. The problem with Billy McDermott is very simple, an extreme lack of good judgement. I am not even talking about the criminal and civil problems that have arisen of his campaign treasurer Christine Braughler that came to light last week in the OC Today, even though you have to take note. I am talking about the fact that Billy simply cannot run on his own merits. At every event he is tied hand in hand hip to hip with Mike McDirtbag. The fact that he cannot just stand on his own record speaks volumes of his immaturity.

The Office of States Attorney is not supposed to be tied at the hip with the Sheriff's Department, that is a fact. What does it say when Billy shown above kneeling is out placing signs for the guy running for Sheriff?. Can you truly trust a guy who is out putting.out signs for a guy running for Sheriff, to fully separate the two offices as is required by law? Billy has also not been an attorney for very long , and while I'm not questioning his abilities , Billy is clearly not suited for a leadership position. The fact that he also attacked his opponent with no facts or proof that she was behind the article showed very poor thinking skills.
As stated anyone can look at Case search and placing that article on his opponent is just immature.

Matt Maciarello, Dan Powell two former State's Attorney's never tied themselves to a "running mate" They ran on their own record and qualities. The reality is Billy is a good guy, but his choices and decision to attach himself to someone else for an election clearly show he is not a leader.

It is for this that clearly Kris Heiser is the logical choice for the Office Of State's Attorney

Worcester County Sheriff Reggie Mason Blasts Mike McDirtbag For His Lies

I hear a certain candidate for Sheriff (Mike M) is running me down about our school coverage and what all he can do to solve the world problems .Yes , with sickness , injuries and one deputy taking a school position in another county because they gave him a vehicle, left us shorthanded. This past year, we did have a shortage of school deputies and yes I take the blame. When I met with Dr. Wilson right after Sandyhook, I ask that a deputy be placed in all schools in our county. Some of my command staff an deputies remembers that (MM) did not want deputies in schools, sure changed his mind now. On the third try, our commissioners agreed to fill only the public schools. They would not do the private schools and made the school deputies only part-time employees. Today, retirees do not want to do this type of work. We have had to take from other divisions to cover our schools, I should had done it sooner. Since the opening day of school, I have spent mornings and afternoons checking our schools and will continue , until I leave. I have tried to stay out of some of this election mess, however the certain few that want to bash me, been there and have had it done to me before, it hurts my family, so I have had about enough . ThIs Marine can take it , not perfect like some people want you to think they are. Not only do we make checks on our deputies in the schools, but our nursery schools are also checked by all of us and our private schools. The longest serving Sheriff of our county, Sheriff Charles T. Martin (16 yrs) and a great sheriff , and I have come out in support of Matt Crisafulli. He is not a know it all, like some think they are. Many promises have been made to a few here about who will be given rank, Matt has not promised anyone I know of, that is his decision. I have talked with both about not campaigning while working, no complaints about Matt, however not a day goes by about (MM) and I have tried to be nice to him, but now I take all gloves off hurting my family. A complaint on Matt, he had a sign out in front of a telephone pole called in by State Hiway, the next day off ,he moved it behind the pole. All signs must be placed behind the poles, so if you see this, contact State Hiway. I can be a nice guy and enough is enough. You have a problem with me, call, do not hurt my family on facebook with all your garbage talk. I have nothing bad to say about Scott Bernal , however I do with George Truitt, another wonder boy, that will solve the world's problems. I would love to have two deputies in all of our schools, however our county commissioners would flip out. Recently I had a meeting with them on school security,it was a good meeting. I want to thank all police agencies in our county Ocean City PD, Ocean Pines PD, Berlin PD, Snow Hill PD, Pocomoke PD, DNR Police and The Maryland State Police for all the resources that they have provided, thanks guys. Lou Taylor and Steve Price , you guys have been outstanding to work with , to make our schools more safe . Thanks to all in The Worcester County Sheriff's Office that have really put forth a great effort in making all safe. I have nine months left in office, I will do all I can and I do regret not getting those two school 's fully staffed. Currently we have two in training , once they complete all training , they will assigned to our schools. Semper Fi !
