Wicomico County Board of Education - Election and Appointment of Members
The Majority Voted For a Board of Education with Five Members Elected by District and Two Members Elected at Large
Question B : To amend the County Charter to require a special election to fill a County Council vacancy if an appointment to fill a vacancy in the Council is made more than 30 days before the filing deadline for the primary for President of the United States.
The Majority voted for the charter amendment.
Question C: To amend the County Charter to extend the time for the Council to act to confirm or reject any appointment by the County Executive of the Director of Administration, the head of a department in the executive branch, or a member of a board or commission from 30 days to 45 days from submission and to require submission at a legislative session of Council.
The Majority Voted For The Charter Amendment.
Question D: To amend the County Charter to require a special election for County Executive if a vacancy occurs within the first 12 months of a term and providing for an interim appointee before the special election. If a vacancy occurs after the first 12 months of a term, then the County Council is authorized to permanently fill the vacancy by a majority vote within 45 days after the vacancy occurred. The current Charter requires the Council to fill a County Executive vacancy by Resolution within thirty (30) days.
The Majority voted for the Charter Amendment.
Question E : To amend the County Charter to direct that the Director of Administration shall perform the duties of County Executive in the event of a temporary absence or disability of the County Executive. This Amendment would remove the County Executive's option to designate in writing some other person in the executive branch to perform the duties of County Executive in the event of a temporary absence or disability of the County Executive.
The Majority voted for the Charter Amendment
Question F : To amend the County Charter to limit the term of an appointment as an "Acting Director of Administration" or any "Acting" head of a department to a period of 90 days; and providing that the Council may extend the appointment every 90 days. The current charter limits the temporary appointment by the County Executive of an "Acting Director of Administration" or an acting head of a department only if the person does not possess all the qualifications of office as required by the charter.
The Majority Voted For The Amendment
Question G : To amend the County Charter to provide that a reorganization includes any change of functions, responsibilities, or powers of any part of the Executive Branch or a management-initiated rearrangement of reporting relationships, including terms of financial compensation, of multiple positions within or between executive departments, offices, or agencies.

Now I hope there will be clear direction on how this electing a school board will work. I also hope that the people that voted for this, will actually take the time to go vote for these people when the time comes to do so. We have to work for somethings and its time to do that. We have to put down our phones and tablets and correct the things that need to be corrected.
