County Government: What a Treasure!

1 Nov

1. Did you see the story about Barbara Miller-Williams sending her county legislature staff out to do personal errands for her? Did you see that she didn’t deny it, but instead suggested that those workers were doing it – apparently without remuneration – on their own time?! Did you see that she treats legislative staff like a personal bank of servants? Did you see the accusation of sexism and colorism? What nobility we have running County Government! No wonder she gets along so swimmingly with the Duke of Cobblestone Lane.

2. Tom Precious picks up again on the real central issue in this year’s County Executive race. No, silly – it’s not roads or clinics or schools or regionalism or planning or Medicaid or mandates. It’s fundraising! Poloncarz has raised $10,000 per day over the past couple of weeks, which means his campaign is gaining momentum, while Collins remains largely self-funded.  Also don’t forget that the Democrats’ get out the vote effort is less dependent on spending money that the Republicans’.

    When she was our Ellicott district councilperson… she came to a block club meeting to hear our concerns about a needle exchange program.  She looked at our predominately white faces, and the first thing she said was, “Oh my…”  She self consciously touched her hat, and then said, “look this isn’t an east side west side, black white issue.”  Racism alive and good.

    Also, at the time, Brian Davis was her protege, and look where that went.  Um-hmmmmm….

    Barbara Miller Williams is IMHO a pig.  How she “ascended” to county government is beyond me….

    1) Re BMW : According to the convicted felon/bank robber/deadbeat dad the accuser was very unpleasant, so it’s not true.

    2) Man, Precious really broke down every donation, and beat the ‘ol “union” dead horse. I don’t really read the News much – have they done this to Collins donations as well?

    I’m still wondering what the choreographer of Fame was doing working in a legislative office in the first place.

    how do you know when a candidate just got bad polling numbers? He attacks meaningless issues, accuses the oponent of starting ww3 . Fundraising with rich folks means just a few people vote. Candidates that matter have many people vote.

    BMW is very lazy now, and always and she blames everyone else for her failings such as failure to understand anything complicated.

    This allegation against BMW is shocking, I tell you; shocking.
