Comment Worthy A Post On Joe Morris

Just a correction that Joe Morris is the current volunteer deputy fire chief and past fire chief. As a point of information the Delmar volunteer fire department membership voted to stay out of this matter due to the good working relationship them and SFD have depending on one another for help. Morris however is president of the Wicomico county chiefs association and is adamantly going against his fire departments wishes by supporting station 13. Morris has the help of Marty Skarson an assistant chief with Delmar volunteer fire department who happens to be the vise president of the Wicomico county chiefs association. Interestingly both live in the state of Delaware yet seem to be dictating the outcome of a Salisbury Maryland situation.

Did Joe Morris cast a yes vote to give this bogus group a territory? Or no?

Leaders at war over fire services future

As disagreement continues about a fire service area for the newly formed Station 13, Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver is standing firmly in favor, against a frustrated Mayor and County Council president. Culver, who reportedly instructed the county’s Emergency Services Department to continue mapping out territory for Station 13 — generally the area near the Salisbury Bypass — has been essentially summoned to Tuesday’s County Council meeting to explain his actions.

“The council can’t understand why he’s taking the direction he is,” County Council President John Cannon told the Salisbury Independent. Culver couldn’t be reached for comment.

Last month, Salisbury Mayor Jake Day and City Council members formally rejected forming a new fire service area and the County Council questioned the need. Last week, an email from Culver’s office sent by County Administrator Wayne Strausburg stated endorsement of the matter would be canceled.

This week, Delmar Mayor Karen Hughes Wells expressed her frustration with the ongoing battle, posting on Facebook and exchanging comments with dozens of people, including Day. “The city and the county entered into an agreement, signed sealed and delivered and there was no area carved out for an additional station. Agreement can only be changed with the blessings of the city, the county and the County Fire Chief’s Association. Now, the county wants to change with no regard for said agreement? Am I correct on this?” Wells wrote.

“I’ve sat back and watched for far too long. I asked questions in the beginning, but was hopeful that the fire service agreement between the county and city would make this a non-issue. Unfortunately, it has not, because the county apparently doesn’t want to honor that agreement,” she wrote.

Day replied that the matter will soon be handed over to judges. “They will fix the embarrassing political behavior of one man,” Day wrote, likely referring to Culver.
“I mean what in the world is he thinking?” Hughes wrote and Day responded, “I think he’s thinking that there has to be a political upside to this.”

“There’s no other explanation for threatening the lives and property of your constituents over their objection, pretending like a handful of people who couldn’t do their jobs ought to suddenly be trusted to do a job, breach a contract, violate unanimously adopted resolutions by city and county councils, counter the county’s adopted budget, and just act like an all-around fool in public.”

2:24,

I understand there were only 2 "vendors" at the pre-bid conference that was held about 10 days ago. Both were from elsewhere than Wicomico County.

Morris knows better than what he's doing. His father was a good man that worked well with Salisbury. For some reason he is hell bent to screw Salisbury. With the help of Skarson and Beach who hate anything Salisbury. Skarson was meeting secretly with Culver long before this mess happened. They all know that the Station 13 posse was as bad as it gets in response and performance. Yet they fully support them to further The Good Ole Boy concept. Chief Jones of Delmar voted against the wishes of their membership and supported the Renegades.

Joe is a very good chief officer excellent at what he does volunteering however he should have never supported 13 the way he has. Everyone makes bad decisions lets hope he realizes he made a BIG one this time and perhaps change his mind and the chiefs association vote.

In the latest pro Station 13 on the A-holes blog he trumpets that the chiefs say that Day lied, but does not mention that in the same sentence they say that Culver lied.

Marty was in almost all the meeting for the FSA as the WCFCA rep, so they knew what was what all the time. And like someone said he a Bob spoke often behind the scenes.
