Budget 101,

Are you addressing me when you say "let's dial it down a bit"? If so, please point out where I attacked other entities.

Then you continue on to make unfounded accusations "crony/buddy guy as superintendent as far as $ and contracts..."

I am not a Roberts paid commenter. I just want people to stick to the facts and stop making unfounded accusations.

Columbia, MD
Mr Cecilian, Would you please explain who Hodge is manipulating and how he is benifiting from his position. Thank you "

I did not say that. It was a quote from Ballz to da Wallz. Here it is again..."I had to confirm that she was not in the pocket of Hodge since he is a self serving manipulator!"
I guess Ballz can explain as you nicely asked.
Ballz...the floor is yours.

Hodge has a problem with public safety and commitment to any project that does not benefit him and his property!

The problem with Hodge is he has got no one to work with. He is the only one that gets into the budget by line item. He brings things up for discussion and the others just look at each other. They don't know the budget.

I don't think Moore is in Hodge's pocket, but I do know Moore recognizes the need for the budget process to change, and it has to start with the commissioners laying out a long term strategy.

I don't think Lockhart and Tome can do that, or they would have by now.

Why did Lockhart change his mind and decide to run at the last minute?

He thinks he is doing a good job because he's making his employees mad. Is that leadership? How about identifying some long term goals and empower your employees to achieve them.

I like Hodge and he is definitely a numbers guy, but he goes to the extreme sometimes. A little radical in his thinking.
Lockhart, from what I hear, put himself in the race after his friend decided not to run. His friend supposedly got caught cheating and decided it wasn't a good time to run...but low and behold now he is running for delegate.
What have I missed? How has he made his employees mad?

he said it. It was in the paper and he said it last week at the forum. He said, "I think if teachers, special interest groups, county employees, firefighters and sheriff's deputies are all mad at me, then I'm probably doing my job"

mostly good people. But you left out a very important candidate: Bill Manlove for dist 36 delegate, running against Smigiel. If you are tired of Smigiel playing 'king' of Cecil County, when he can't even win a majority vote in Cecil County, vote for Manlove.

Hmmm, I have not seen Hodge's picture on any of Moore's campaign literature but I do see Mullin, Zeauskas, Dawson, Dunn, Taylor's picture with the fat boys...aka Smigiel and Pipken aka Smipken...Taylor for treasurer...that's a joke. Zeauskas can't control his own spending, just ask his attorney Smigiel who resently represented him in court for unpaid bills...now that's someone we want running the county. OH Mullin, is that the same commissioner who gave the fat boys meeting minutes from a closed commissioner meeting without the knowledge of the other commissioners that had confidential personnel information. Mullin is untrustworthy. if you want the fat boys running this county then you know who to vote for.

Now, now, Ballz, let's not judge brains by hair color. Your previous posts indicated she told you she was working for or 'hired' by Hodge. OK. So show us the money. It would have to be reported on Hodge's campaign money report. So she should be able to prove it was a job not a political soulmate thing. Show us the money! I don't ever recall hearing anything about her as a paid employee of his during the election two years ago.

Well, I'm a little on the chubby side, too, so don't pick on the fat guys for that. But you left out one of the gang that can't shoot straignt that can't pay his bills either: Mike Dunn, employee of Mike Smigiel.

It is in the court records that he has a judgment and court costs totaling over $20,000 for unpaid bills, looks like credit card debts he didn't pay. They even got a court ordered garnishee of his state salary, which is paid by Smigiel to Dunn.

So sure let's give our tax money to guys who can't even manager their own wallets. Stupid is as stupid votes...

ANOTHER political mailer today from EJ Pipkin, endorsing "his" candidates for various political offices. EJ - we get it...you're promoting these people. But what you don't get is we're not impressed. The candidates you're endorsing are unqualified and have shallow resumes for office. Their "promises" lack the understanding of the office(s) they're running for and of the maturity of life experiences. Save your money on these mailings, EJ - we're smarter than you give us credit for.

Oh good grief,

I 100% agree. I kind of feel sorry for these young idealists who are being misled and manipulated by the puppet masters. What is most concerning is their attempt to hijack the Republican Central Committee.

The Smipkin slate needs to be stopped. Get them out of the republican party and most importantly the RCC.

I take back my comment above about feeling sorry for these young idealists. They are ignorant. The letters in the Whig today by Dunn, Zeauskis and Patterson are evidence to that fact. They've been fighting for less taxes and smaller government for years? With what results? Smaller government? They've formed this web of PACs and shadow organizations, hiding and commingling funds. Where is their independence? Why can't they run as individuals, rather than banding together like a wild pack of dogs. And Dunn is leading the pack. He's taking the high road? Give me a break. I am sick of hearing the rhetoric from this group " "lower taxes, less government spending and more private sector jobs." How? With leadership like this? Blah, blah, blah....this is not a game and the RCC is not a social club.

The Republican party has enjoyed a good reputation in Cecil County for many years. Don't let these bozos and their bus driver Smipkin destroy it. Stop the bogus Fiscal Conservative slate of Chris Zeauskas, Mike Dawson, Carrie Taylor, Jay Jacobs, Ted Patterson, Brad Carillo, James Hutchinson, Jim Mullin and Joe Tropp.

Dunn "humbly asks for your consideration and vote..." Consideration? given, vote? no way!

(I'm still waiting for one of these morons to knock on my door.)
