Mr. Hartman Asks City Council To Get Rid Of Homeless Hanging Around Old Moose Lodge – Mayor Says “The Poor Will Always Be With Us.” (Patrick 14-7)December 28, 2015
Carol Bruce Complains About How Ridiculous The Mayor Is Making The Town Look With His Incompetent Handling Of The Council Seat VacancyDecember 28, 2015
Sunpaper Sports Writer Mike Preston Apologizes For Making Outlandish Raven-Steelers Prediction. Promises To Be More Objective And Rational In The FutureDecember 28, 2015
Mike Viviano/WJZ-TV : Ravens cannot pull off a win no matter what QB they use. Pittsburgh 28- Ravens 10
Mike Preston/BaltoSun: Pittsburgh 50 – Ravens 20. If they leave Big Ben in the whole game it could be 60 to 20.
Bruce Laird/BaltoColt: They’ve got three good wideouts, a running game and sometimes they have a defense. Steelers 31 – Ravens 9
(OnTheOtherHand: Baltimore’s defense [342yds] is equal to Cincy [335yds] and Cincy beat Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh 16 to 10. Pittsburgh’s offense [402yds] is best in AFC but Baltimore offense  stat-wise is just a nick less than Cincy [367yds] . Ravens should avoid a blowout at home with their chief rival. Playmakers will rise to the occasion. Ravens win 27-24 with last minute FG. …Besides Mike Preston always picks Pittsburgh to win ,even if we have Flacco. He’s bullshit….Also Ravens should wear their golden pants again. It will confuse Big Ben and he’ll throw two or three interceptions. If they can’t wear golden pants Ravens should blitz Big Ben occasionally on 1st or 3rd down to force turnovers and mistakes. Big Ben can’t take the pressure and he is prone to injury.)
Why does it take six weeks or more to resolve a council seat tie election??????? It took New Windsor, Md just two weeks!!!! Let the Aberdeen City Council vote for either Stephen Smith, the incumbent, or Sean DeBonis, the Tea Party challenger. The Council was ready to vote on December 7th (2015) but Tea Party Mayor McGrady wants to delay it two or more weeks. Why wasn’t the Council allowed to decide when they wanted to decide???? The Mayor only has one vote. The full Council should take charge of the agenda if the Mayor and City Manger are incompetent.

The last time Ravens played Seahawks in Baltimore they won 44 to 41 in OT. They were behind 41 to 24 with 7 minutes to go. Ravens could win ugly if Seahawks make more stupid mistakes.
Aberdeen Councilman Lindecamp Asks City Manager If He Asked the Attorney Generals Opinion On How To Resolve The Tie Vote. City Manager Miller Ignores The QuestionDecember 10, 2015
Aberdeen’s City Manger Dougie Miller did not investigate the New Windsor, Maryland tie election in 1999. New Windsor had no charter solution for tie votes. They sought the advise of four lawyers. They all agreed that the solution was the City Council should select one of the two tie-candidates in a council vote.
Miller cheery picks his lawyers and his information to come to a suggested resolution that benefits only the new Mayor. The suggestion does not serve the democratic process, the City Council , both candidates, or the Aberdeen voters.
Miller was asked point blank if he sought the Attorney Generals advise. He ignored the question. This serves the Mayor who also ignored the Aberdeen Board of Elections in its request to seek an independent legal opinion.
Aberdeen’s Tea Party Mayor McGrady Suggest We Solve the Election Tie With An Undemocratic Selection of His Political CronyDecember 10, 2015
Aberdeens Republican Tea Party Mayor Patrick McGrady pulled a fast political trick on the City Council at the end of the discussion on how to resolve the tie vote election. Instead of taking a vote on the three suggested solutions, McGrady just chose his suggestion with no vote. End of discussion.
McGrady’s autocratic suggestion is to nominate his crony in the election and have the Council approve. Landbecks democratic solution was to have the Mayor nominate both election-tie candidates and have the Council make the final selection.
Part of McGrady’s slick political trick is to have the Council meet and become familiar with his crony in the next few weeks and then vote for him. Landbeck was caught off guard . She suggested the Council also meet with Stephen Smith ,too. McGrady abruptly cut her off and suggested the council could deal with that in two weeks.
“Shady” McGrady strikes again! He shoved his plan into action without a vote. He ignored a vote on the other two plans. When Landbeck tried to include Stephen Smith into the plan he shut that down without a vote. And the City Manager did nothing to point out the Mayors undemocratic behavior. The City Manager just seems to be working for the Mayor, not the Council or the public interest.

RepublicanAegis – Tea Party Republican Mayor of Aberdeen Refuses Democratic Solution To Tie Election, Mayor Will Attempt To Nominate His Political Crony Sean DeBonis On Dec 21, City Manager Refuses To Answer Councilman Lindecamp Inquiry About Atty Generals OpinionDecember 9, 2015
The Aberdeen City Council will have to decide on December 21st whether they want a democratic or autocratic form of government making decisions for the next four years.The new Tea Party Republican mayor, Patrick McGrady, has chosen autocracy. Mayor McGrady refuses the common sense and democratic solution to the tie vote problem and is determined to nominate his political crony for a four year unelected term. Its up to the Council to assert there democratic powers and reject the Mayors undemocratic solution. In the mean time someone from the City Council or the Aberdeen Election Board should request an opinion from the Attorney Generals office. City Manager Doug Miller continues to indicate he doesn’t want to do his job or answer embarrassing questions . The Aberdeen Election Board requested the Mayor allow them to contact an independent legal opinion on the matter. The Mayor ignored the request.
