That's not what was reported in the paper. It stated that " Stein has dropped the case against the City of St. Mary's"

On the bright side before he convinces the St. Mary's council to dig themselves into a bigger hole; I hear the Attorney Generals office has issued a opinion.

You only hit the top of the iceberg...there's a lot more in play there...but at least you hit the mark this time.
Best point: at-large representation. Until and unless this is fixed, St. Marys will always be a "suburb" of Osprey Cove.
What, pray tell, does "Go All Elvis" mean?

I do like a good peanut butter and banana sandwich with a cold glass of milk from time to time.

Ignorant.
In the city's attempt to expand it sucked the businesses from downtown. There is really no reason to go downtown. If you did, what would you do?

Right on!!! It's kinda funny when you think about it. The downtown GOB's got in an annexation war with Kingsland in the eighties.
In a panic they annexed every plot of land they could to keep kingsland from growing bigger than St Marys. In the process they made downtown St Marys irrelevant. No matter how much tax payer revenue they steal and spend on the downtown mill houses it does not help.

So every halloween they have to enjoy their scare crows alone.

What's even funnier is the famous article in, what was it, Money Magazine(?) that said we were a great small town to live in.

Sorry, Jerry, but the damned Yankees did not just "spend their money and leave." They came, stayed, and made Osprey Cove the new center of political power - and they still don't spend any money (other than tax money) downtown!

Remember the old Walmart shopping center. The bank downtown moved there. No more downtown banking. The realtors also helped by pushing new homes vs old. Then the mill closed. One thing after another. There was nothing downtown to attract people.

They tried in vain to keep the post office downtown. They somehow convinced the BOE to build the most expensive elementary school in the world downtown. But the old farts downtown are so old to have kids so they have to bus in students. They spent a fortune to keep the city hall downtown, but that don't work because most people just ignore the government. That however is a mistake for property owners in St Marys.

It is time the outlanders in the sub-divisions start taking control of their government in St Marys or the downtowners will keep living off tax revenue generated by the homeowners in the outlying sub-divisions.

In short ... The city government is crooked and the St. Marys people are ignorant and that explains why the city government is crooked.

Bingo I think we have a winner! Jim Stein thought he was the only one that knew that. I'm waiting to see how he convinces the people of St. Mary's that he misappropriated "their" money for "their" best interest. Of course in a folksy language that only his believers understand. LMFAO

The paper got it wrong. They have suspended the case until June 22. After that date, the HA will issue another resolution to the Council to reflect support for the HA and its need to give "wider services".

Yes, the AGs office gave an opinion, but that is not going to stop the HA from violating the current law.

The best thing to do at this point to get the Authority in front of a judge and show they are incontempt of the law. When that happens, that may well get rid of the HA and their actions. The gutless council will not do this, it will have to be citizens to do this. From what I understand, there is a case brewing.

The wheels of litigation move slow. The council could change dramaticly after our next election. It will take another anti-Trader type of campaign to accomplish this.... but it's possible.

No. But at least the elected people would be in control of it and we can vote their butts out. Currently, we cannot vote out the incestuous Hospital Authority and their "friends".

We have to pick one battle at a time.

Don't think her history will allow her to seek the position of Mayor. Don't get me wrong she is a good person. But I believe we can do better. But I'm certain the GOBs would be thrilled to have their comedian as the city leader.
That is all we need
