Mayor McGrady is a political mook. He and his illegitimate political council appointee Steve Goodin played fast and lose with the economic development of Aberdeen by voting against a $1 million state grant to support Frito Lays $60 mill expansion. The same mooky McGrady wondered out loud 6 weeks ago why the Lidl grocery corp didn’t bring their hq and distribution center to Aberdeen when they decided to put a retail outlet in town. Its simple. Cecil County’s deal was a $360K State loan, a $16,000 conditional loan and a $20,000 worker training grant by Cecil’s OED. At the time Lidl made there decision, Aberdeen City was involved in a crazy five month long struggle to have a council run-off vote to resolve the tie-vote council seat. And the result was not a proper democratic process but instead it was a rigged corrupt run-off procedure that ended up putting one of McGrady’s Tea Party cronies in office who had nothing to do with the tie-vote.
If Lidl was watching this political fiasco that ended in political corruption, what would they think? A Mad Hatter Tea Party Mayor who couldn’t do a proper democratic runoff in ten days. And to top it off, the Tea Party Mayor was a rightwing-nut political mook who doesn’t think govt should give corps economic incentives. The crony-crooked Mayor of Aberdeen ‘doesn’t like socalled “economic cronyism”.. The retailers are watching the political stability of Aberdeen city government and if there not laughing then they must be shaking their heads in bewilderment..
