The Mayor Of Aberdeen Should Nominate Stephen Smith For Council Seat Four. He Should StopThe Partisan Political Game He Is Playing With The Tie-Vote Resolution

January 25, 2016

    The Mayor of Aberdeen should stop his partisan political games and nominate Stephen Smith for the City Council seat four. The Council is suppose to be resolving the election tie-vote between Sean DeBonis and Stephen Smith. The voters chose these two candidates. Each received 655 votes.  The Mayor already nominated DeBonis and the Council rejected him.  The only other candidate the voters qualified for the tie-vote was Stephen Smith. He should thus be nominated by the Mayor and let the Council decide.. The resolution of the tie-vote is not suppose to be an opportunity for the Mayor to grab illegitimate power.

The resolution of the tie-vote is suppose to between DeBonis and Smith. They are the two  candidates that the voters qualified for the fourth seat. The Mayor’s second suggested nominee Jason Kolligs is not qualified for the fourth seat. He came in 8th place.. Not fourth. The Mayor should stop the political game playing with Aberdeen democracy. He should follow the law and the will of the voters.

Aberdeen voters count!

 

 

 

Break The Tie-Vote Democraticly—-Nominate Stephen Smith For Council Seat Four

January 21, 2016

 

 

The Aberdeen City government has been hacked by the new Mayor…Patrick McGrady…a card carrying Tea Party Republican.  The Voters voted. DeBonis And Smith tied with 655 votes each for council seat four.   The Council was suppose to break the tie-vote  between Democrat Smith and Tea Party Republican DeBonis. The Council was given a chance  to support DeBonis, a McGrady crony . The Council rejected him.  Now the Council  has  not been given a chance to vote on the other tie-vote candidate— Steve Smith …because the Mayor is a partisan political hack.  Instead, the Mayor says he will nominate another Tea Party Republican crony that lost by coming in eighth. The Mayor  doesn’t have the RIGHT to thwart the will of the voters. He has hacked the democratic process.

The Mayor should follow the law and the will of the voters. Break the tie-vote. Nominate Smith and stop frustrating the  democratic process!

[New Windsor, Md had a tie vote in 1999 (May 2nd) . Like Aberdeen they had no charter references to tie vote resolution. They quickly had legal advice from four lawyers that said the matter should be handled as a “vacancy”. The Council voted to resolve the matter eight days later (May 20). Three votes went to the incumbent Paul Garver, one vote went the challenger, Sam Pierce. Problem solved. They followed the law and respected the will of the voters.They chose between the two tied candidates)
