Over 13k in legal fees charged to Rising Sun because Mayor thinks his Powers were taken from him, judge denies preliminary injunction. Rick Braun, Robert Fisher partners in several lawsuits against the town. Check MD Judiciary Case Search Other Lawsuits against the town by developers are being affected by Mayor Fishers desire to have wells drilled on friends property Fisher from day one has been trying to stop Rising Sun connecting to Chester Water...town has no liability insurance to cover the millions of dollars should they loose lawsuit with Frapple. Everyone in Rising Sun town foots the bill by way of special taxation.
There is a petition signing in the municipal parking lot off of Queen Street (where sunfest takes place) this SATURDAY March 23 9 to 5. The petition is for Registered Voters to request a Recall Election be put on the Ballot in June. If you are not a registered voter you can register online or in person. If we can get 320 signatures we can request a recall election. People who are for or against Mayor Fisher can exercise their right to vote in June during the regular election in Rising Sun. Again we do not know Mayor Fisher personally and have nothing against him personally, many people that speak on his behalf have known him a long time, I am sure they care for him deeply judging by the lengths in which they go to support him. That being said Rising Sun is a business, this is not a game to us, people are struggling to make ends meet and cannot afford frivolous lawsuits and wasting our money. SATURDAY MARCH 23 9 to 5 Municipal Parking Lot off of Queen Street (where sunfest is held) WE NEED 320 signatures from Registered Voters to request a recall election..... in June the people will have a chance to cast their vote again! Get in the know and get involved in preserving Rising Sun! This is ridiculous!

I am not a fan of recalls but I understand their need under certain circumstances. I have a particular concern with the recall that the Board of Commissioners of Rising Sun approved a few months ago. Typically, a recall is initiated by the voters. The recall approved by the commissioners only allows a recall if an elected official is censured by the existing elected body. If we as voters wanted to recall any elected official, we have no way of doing so unless the elected official is censured first by the existing elected body. This is contrary to the many Maryland recall laws I have reviewed and I could not find any that had a censure provision in order to initiate a recall. I find it more troubling that the voters are at the mercy of the elected body if they feel that an elected official should be removed as the recall can only happen when the elected body censures an elected official. I also see potential litigation and more costs to the town as the censure of the Mayor was prior to the approval and adoption of the recall ordinance and I don't believe the recall amendment was or can be adopted retroactively.

They all need to go if you ask me. The Mayor is corrupt and the Commissioners don't know what they are doing. I am not really sure if a new Mayor and new Commissioners would be any better. To many people in this town in each others back pockets. Old names and old faces talking about running in the next election. Track records no better than what we have now, more of the same maybe worse.

Notice how the people involved are from Florida to New Hampshire to Baltimore to...
Mayor is only one really local, the rest moved here in the past 5-10 years. And they are telling us how to run the town? Got news for ya, it was BETTER 30-40 years ago, that's a FACT.
We're getting water from PA? Our $120k a year administrator is from PA? Hmmmm.

rslocal - With that way of thinking you should stop using the electricity. It is not generated in town.

What a foolish statement smearing the town administrator like he is getting a kickback from the water because he is from PA and the water is coming from PA too. Folks that think like you is the real problem with this town. I am sure you are friends with the Mayor or Sandi Didra (convicted felon) who stole from the town!

Furthermore the folks that move to the town do not have a right to help make decisions for the town? Maybe you need to buy a mountain and go live there is you do not want any change. Life moves on and towns WILL grow.

Why don't you push for proof that they are paying this? The insurance is covering it as Bob said and they are providing the law firm. That is why Jay is not doing it.
