Wicomico County Council The Best We Have Ever Had


Under the leadership of Council President John Cannon our current Wicomico County Council is the best we have ever had. We have some terrific members who have been fighting for the taxpayers dollars . Joe Holloway, Matt Holloway, Mark Kilmer, Larry Dodd and Ernie Davis have done an awesome job. John Hall has been unfortunately sporadic in his commitment to doing the right thing by the taxpayers. John is a nice guy and I like him, but he has made some questionable comments and decisions lately.

I have seen many Councils come and go, but have seen none that have worked together as well as the current one, even with the worst County Executive in history.

Good time to post JT.....A$$BURROW is up to his usual bashing of the Council trying to praise DUMBASS Bob......he is still praising Culver for firing financial person and now all the budget shortfalls are being found.....Culver and A$$BURROW blame everything on the previous person......BUT, if that were true why did DUMBASS Bob stop the investigation????????? His hands were in it long before he fired anyone!!!!!! This is the way his businesses went under.....glad the Council is watching him closely....he will give the ship away!!!!!!!!

I have watched John Hall and he is very liberal. I have also watched Bob Culver in his 3 years as a County Executive and he is extremely liberal and hasn't made any cuts.

The only thing Bob has done was pissed off all 900 of the county employees by taking their birthday's away from them and invented a number that it saved taxpayers "X" amount of money. Guess what, most if not all county employees don't need anyone to replace them when they take off so it didn't save the tax payers a nickel. The Birthday off was just a small perk for a bunch of underpaid employees that cost the tax payers nothing.

He took cars away from the department heads and took one for himself from Gary Mackes. He drives it all around and even tows a boat with it. All this while burning county gas. He loves to take weekend getaways at the tax payers expense and pretends it's work related and he takes his girlfriend with him.

Instead of cutting out employees he has hired numerous ones that supported his campaign. All at tax payers expense. These include his daughter, his son, Joe A$$burrow's wife, A.Kaye Kenny, Cathy Bassett and Jaquie Granger(Thorton Crowe from A$$burrow's Hobby Blog). It should be noted that A$$burrow's wife got a pay raise after she was being treated bad by Bob and A$$burrow started ragging on him on his Hobby Blog.

Bob Culver has already paid Jacquie Granger nearly $20,000 at $1,000 a week to take pictures for him to post on his personal Facebook page. Bob Culver has also paid Joe A$$burrow several thousand dollars to advertise on his Hobby Blog. I don't know who is using who?

Bob Culver got rid of Department Heads that were doing a good job because he had personal issues with them. He replaced them with worthless people who can't do half the job that the people who got fired did.

Bob Culver now has numerous law suits against him that is costing the tax payers thousands of dollars.

We now know that Bob Culver is a RINO.
We also know that John Hall is lower than a RINO, he is pure bred Democrat.

Mr. Cannon deserves much credit for his role in blocking Bobbyboi's Station 13 scam. I hope that John is the next County Exec.

Marc Kilmer and Cannon deserve a shout out for their astute skepticism regarding the proposed gift of land north of town. It is not that the exchange has to be a win-lose or that something is always better than nothing. These 2 and maybe others understand the complexity and possible consequence of the possibilities.
It is just not that simple as Albero, Culver, Strawberry and others rush to claim.
Should the government own land? If it were not for the perceived security of taxing authority would it be wise to give up tax rev at the same time you are launching a speculative initiative on the land? Ie how would Culver feel now if he had bought the building for his restaurant that eventually failed. Who would bear the tax burden? What of the risk of consequential loss of rev and maintanence of land and improvements if this doesnt work out?These and MANY MORE QUESTIONS REMAINED UNACKNOWLEDGED BY CULVER AND HIS BAND OF NEOPHYTES @ One Executive Plaza.
Again thank you to the CC members who are willing to diligently pursue effectiveness over popularity in the exercise of office.
Perhaps loans to private/public partnerships are more appropriate and desirable.

Here's the latest example of Assboro's fake news and ignorance, in a post trashing the Council for asking pertinent questions about some land that the owner wants to gift to the County.

According to Joehole,

"You see, a developer decided he wasn't going to build a pretty large, (250 acre) housing development near the Henry Parker Ball Fields. Instead, he came to the County Executive and has offered to DONATE all 250 acres to the County. The land had been zoned for farming and changed for a housing development. So the land brings in around $12,000.00+ a year as it now sits. However, the owner of the land will be asking to bring it back to its former zoning and it will drop down to around $2,000.00 a year."

First, lets look at he errors:

1. It is not 250 acres.
2. the property tax is much more than $12,000 per year.
3. The owner could not simply have it rezoned.

Assboro portrays the property as prime development property, but it's nothing of the kind. A few years back, the owner operated it as a borrow pit and the most suitable part is now scared and full of deep "borrow pits" (holes). And it has no road frontage. Ideal for a "housing development."

After stating that it's zoned for residential development, he then says that it could become the site of a chemical plant. Is he the buffoon that wrote this, or Thornton Crowe/Jackie Granger?

Even the people who comment on his hobby blog are questioning his BS -- if it is so valuable, why does the owner want to give it away?. And the buffoon replied that he really has no idea, if you can believe that.

In fact the council has asked the Exec to explain what could the County use the property for without a huge expense to gain access from the Parker athletic complex. At the last meeting, available on pac 14, someone from Culver's office said that they have no idea, just some pipe dreams. John Cannon asked them to consider and respond at a later date. And that's what the Alberohole is bitching about.

12:04 don't know where you read "nice" guy.....maybe it popped into your mind from reading A$$BURROW'S spew.og???? The point is Culver alienated himself from people doing a good job by eliminating a benefit....that's his right as an administrator....but it doesn't mean employees have to like it!!!! Culver then has to expect the fallout of not being "liked" by those in his division. The numerous people he has hired shows his lack of judgement, and he has definitely not saved any money for the County.

3:11,

After reading your comment, I called my father-in-law, who has been a real estate agent here for many years and is familiar with this property that has been offered to the county as a gift and it's history. It's owned by a local investment group that has been trying to market it for about 25 years without success. They first thought it would be a prime industrial site due to being on the railroad line, but that did not occur, and then they had it rezoned when a local home builder (Tom Ruark -?) indicated interest. Apparently he signed a contract but could not get financing and there was a law suit. Next, they let it be used as a borrow pit for fill to use for the Route 50 bypass. He thinks they have probably gotten some appraiser to say its worth much more than it would ever sell for, and want the county to accept it so they get a huge tax writeoff. It is not a desirable site, and is not worth much.

Joe Assboro is now arguing with persons making comments about the property that Culver wants to get. It's hilarious to listen to his BS.

Bob Culver! I hope you replace the current management for the land and ball field expansion because Miller and Oland are lost. Brian Workman send him packing this guy has the personality of a snail and as lazy as one just ask Ed Russ who does all his work.

Just wait until Gary Mackes kicks Culver out of office and shows him how to build a softball complex the envy of the tri state area.

Bull F*%king Shit! You know damn well it is for sale. Anything is for sale. It's been for sale and no one wants that Shit Hole. It's nothing but wasteland now after it was used as a burrow pit for the SHA. Raymond S Smethurst JR made his money off that land and the state tax payers. Now he is going to con the tax payers again with his fake appraisal of that land being worth $1 Million dollars. This is a scam.

Why do I have a feeling this fake comment came from Culver or the property owners. Making a profit by selling that land is worth more than the tax write of they want by December 29, 2017.

This is nothing but a con game by Bob Culver just like his con game with Bennett Construction.

So, Cannon would rather get $2k a year income from it than the taxes it would generate as a developed, profit making property? Of course that doesn't make sense for the County, but if you look at Cannon's history, he's not about Wicomico County, John Cannon is all about John Cannon! He would LOVE to have his straw men scoop up that land and do the same development himself so John Cannon rakes in the profits!

Of course, leaving it up to that greedy bastion would ruin the whole business plan anyway. Bob Culver is way smarter than John Cannon will ever be.

October 6, 2017 at 12:53 PM

"Bob Culver is way smarter than John Cannon will ever be." John Cannon did't owe the County $6,000 dollars, Bob Culver did and couldn't pay his taxes. That is why there wasn't a tax sale last year.

Anonymous said...

I read a lot on here about county workers either being inept or lazy. Last night I got to see one of their problems at Henry Parker Complex. My daughter had a softball game and there was no mound to pitch from, however there was a big baseball mound right behind where our pitcher was pitching from. This is very dangerous when a fly ball is hit in the infield. Some guys did come out and remove it after the game had started but things looked very disorganized. Also the umpire wearing blue jean shorts didn't look professional at all. I know these kids aren't professionals but they deserve to be safe and have fun. If one of the parents would have hurt himself getting that mound off the field good luck Wicomico County.
