Pocomoke City Council Members,
Recently Pocomoke City Police Lt. Martin Koerner resigned. There are rumors already being spread that Koerner never intended to stay in Pocomoke and had applied for a "federal job" before coming to Pocomoke. That rumor is simply not true.
I have known Marty Koerner for over twenty years. He had an outstanding career with the Maryland State Police, retiring as a Captain in charge of the entire Eastern Shore. I was pleased when I learned he had been hired at Pocomoke. I know that he cared for this city and he was deeply concerned about its recent crime problems. He did seek to make a difference here in Pocomoke.
Although I know many of the reasons that Lt. Koerner left your city, I strongly encourage each of you to personally meet with Marty and have him tell you why he felt he had to resign.
I know each one of you and am confident that you want the best for the City of Pocomoke. Sit down with Marty one on one and hear him out. I'm confident you will be shocked as some of his revelations.
I should note that this letter has been written without any prompting on the part of Koerner
