CP has replied with the following to Ms. Nieberding:

I was quite surprised to receive an invitation for the mayor's Annual Holiday Gala, which interestingly, is held outside of Annapolis. My many blog readers and I would like to know the purpose of this event. While of course it is for fundraising, why does a second-term mayor feel she needs to raise political and financial capital? If she/her campaign gather thousands or tens of thousands of dollars from this event, is she planning to use it to run a campaign for office? If so, which office? Surely, she has many other options, many of which could actually include "average folks" if her goal is to simply hold a holiday party.
Thank you.

I like the part in the email that says, “general tickets are only $60 per person.“ For that, can’t they at least spell hors d’oeuvres correctly? Perhaps that is cheap for politcs these days. As if CP would spend $120 so he and his lovely wife can don formal attire and rub elbows with a bunch of Democrats at a garden center! It’s certainly more fun than doing so with Republicans in a waterfront mansion, but what’s this all about? Not only is it outside of Annapolis, but it’s outside of the price range of a huge chunk of Annapolitans, CP included.

Please send donations to this blog NOW or I will ne be able to attend this party (actually I have already been been invited to Tehran to debate with President Ahmad whatever his jihad name is, but I'll take donations anyhow).

Just one question please. Why is Ellen Moyer raising money? Why is Ellen Moyer raising money? Why is Ellen Moyer raising money? Why is Ellen Moyer raising money? Why is Ellen Moyer raising money? Why is Ellen Moyer raising money? Why would we want to support this failed administration and give our Mayor more of our money? And finally, how did CP ever get on a Friend of Ellen Moyer mailing list? That really upsets me. I gotta call my therapist…
Wait, I have an idea, let’s hold our own Peoples Holiday Party that same night. It will be a real event to celebrate community and it will be free!!! We don’t need a bunch of politicians to have their own elite shindig.
