OhNine OnLine for October 28


Don't forget that you can hear CP "On the Foerfront" live on 1430WNAV every weekday morning at 8:15 but if you miss the live program , you can hear it at www.1430wnav.com/onthefoerfront.mp3   Just click and listen!

Josh Cohen needs our help!  He needs more money, more money, more money...or so he asks us in his latest email blast. Well of course he needs more and more and more of our money to keep sending out more and more fancy, glossy, colorful mailers to ask us for more money. He needs more of our money so he can "fundamentally change the way business is done at City Hall. Together we can restore fiscal responsibility..." Hmmm. hmm.. hey wait a minute!!! I don't get how using all of our money to promote their agendas with fancy communications and publications will fundamentall...oh nevermind...!!!

Speaking of the plethora of Cohen mailers, consider how he is basically indicting Ellen Moyer, his one-time ally and mentor: He wants to make City Hall "More effective, transparent and accountable."
He says that "Now more than ever we need a Mayor who listens, who is accessible and engaged and who has the temperament to bring our town together."  Yeah. He's sounding a common chord among all candidates this past few months. Don't be like Ellen. Of course he was always hesitant to ever seem as if he was saying anything negative about Ellen--until his pollsters started telling him how widely she is despised by the citizens. I don't know what voters will think about seeing Classie Hoyle and Ross Arenett warm up to him and endorse him in two of those mailers. Where has Sheila Finlayson been lately? She came out early on and endorsed Cohen. My guess is they want to keep that quiet so as not to upset any of Pierre's supporters.  Hmm...Hmmm...

TONIGHT: District 30 Democrats--Wednesday, October 28 (the fourth Wednesday of the month) at Asbury United Methodist Church, 87 West Street, Annapolis. Doors open at 6 p.m.; the meeting starts promptly at 6:30 p.m.  Democratic mayoral candidate Josh Cohen will be with us for the start of the meeting, and Speaker Mike Busch and Delegate Virginia Clagett will speak.  We'll hear from the mayoral and aldermanic campaigns about the final push before the November 3 election in the City of Annapolis....and at the same time, renegade Democratic activist and rabble-rouser Chuck Weikel, in  deliberate snub of his own party, is hosting some sort of a fundraiser for candidates Kenny Kirby, Ian Pfeiffer and Mat Silverman at the same time at CastleBay Pub....while I can understand why Kirby would go, I would think the other guys would run in the opposite direction....Silverman, a county policeman, is working that night and did not even know he was being featured at the event.

Wednesday, Oct 28, 7:00 to 9:00 PM, League of Women Voters and WNAV Mayoral Debate at BayWoods Retirement Community, 7101 Bay Front Drive (off  Edgewood Rd near Port Annapolis Marina)

Are there any publicly available polls on the Mayor's race? Does anyone have any inside information?

Paul Foer said...

sure they do...and that's why they're called insiders...it costs well over 10 grand so you can imagine which candidate or candidates have it...
