The drama is not over yet in Aberdeens city elections. The  defeat of three-term incumbent Mayor Michael Bennett to the   snarky inexperieced  29 year old Tea Party Republican Patrick McGrady was not expected . Now, surprise number two,  the fourth seat in the city council  election is declared an electoral tie. Incumbent  Stephen Smith and Tea-Party challenger Sean DeBonis  both recieved 655 votes. County election officials said Aberdeens city attorney must determine how to decide the winner. They could flip a coin, cut a deck of cards, draw straws or hold a runoff election.

Also, The Republican Aegis (The Record/AegisOnline)  printed a photo of the defeated Mayor Bennett after the election and labels it  a “stunned “look. It really just looks like he took off his glasses and is thinking. He doesnt look stunned,he looks TIRED.

Patrick “Shady” McGrady, Tea Party Republican Wing-Nut ,Wins Mayors Race In Aberdeen With 33.7% Of Vote – Taylor , Landbeck And Lindy Win Council Seats, – McGrady Without Any Council Support Can Only Mis- Lead,

The vote devided up three ways . McGrady got 33.7%. Bennett got  30.9%  Posey-Moss (21%) and Elliot (17%) got 38%.  That makes McGrady ironically  a minority-Mayor. 68% of voters did not vote for him.. I think we need a run-off election. McGrady is an extreme Republican reactionary that most voters dont want . And he didnt drag any of his KnowNothing TeaParty “team” onto the council.   It was the number one question last time. How can you govern when you dont get along with anyone. Now that question is a reality. McGrady cant govern as a one-man band. The Council will have to govern and drag McGrady around an embarrassing four years and hope his clownish immaturity doesnt degrade the image of Aberdeen as a progressive community. McGrady wont get anything done unless he co-operates with the council programs.He will be “out -gunned” and out voted with any of his crazy ideas. I have a feeling Aberdeen will become the laughing stock of Maryland. Move over Pocomoke!

RepublicanAegis/ErikaButler – Aberdeen Town Election : Councilwoman Ruth Elliot Challenges Mayor Michael Bennett

September 7, 2015

71671_484624780725_2684160_ncouncilwoman.elliott_sm.gif

The Republican/Aegis reports that current Aberdeen Mayor Michael Bennett will be challenged by Councilwoman Ruth Elliot in this years town election on November 6th.   Appointed Councilman Steve Smith will seek voter approval to keep his political seat. And council members Ruth Ann Young and Sandra Landbeck are undecided about reelection.

Tea Party Republican Patrick McGrady who lost his bid for mayor four years (2011)  ago in a close race has lost his political fire  since getting married .  McGrady told the Republican Aegis “…I have no definitive plans at this point today.” McGrady also lost  in 2010  when he ran for House of Delegates  in the Maryland General  Assembly. But McGrady did say he was “dissatisfied with the current stock of candidates for mayor and city council, so I may have to run.” There is an open seat and one new challeger.

At the August meetng of the New Harford Democratic Club  it was also announced that Rev. Melvin Taylor would be a candidate for the city council.

No one said the Ravens won by a “tiny” or “slim” margin last Sunday against the Pittsburg Steelers. They just won! But the local media emphazised how Bennett “eked out” or “edged out” a victory. Bull shit , he won. He beat a “gutter” politician. with out getting into the gutter. Mayor Bennett said it best.  “A win is a win.”And McGrady, the down and dirty politician, is in hiding  from the press, unable to explain why his cheap smear campaign  tactics didnt work.

You Can’t Win Aberdeen Elections If Your In The Tea Party

November 5, 2011

    You cant win Aberdeen elections if your in the Tea Party. As soon as you say Tea Party you loose 40 to 50% of the Aberdeen vote. The liberal-moderate common sense voters make up most of the voters in Aberdeen.  Your fighting for every one of the other 50%. It cant be done. Patrick “Shady” McGrady use to brag he was a Tea Party organizer. He attended all the Harford Campaign for Liberty rallies. During his short-run campaign for Mayor of Aberdeen he never mentions the dirty little words. Maybe everyone will forget. They wont. He doesnt mention that he’s a libertarian either. He just tells us he’s for smaller government. Aberdeen is small government, about as small as your gonna get. What does he mean he wants small government.? Grover Norquest , the libertarian tax nut spells out what the Republican libertarians want. He says “I want government small enough so I can drag it in the bathroom and drown it.” Thats what  I think McGrady wants. Our last experiment with libertarian government wasnt so long ago. What was his name?…Simpson? …Simmons?…Fred Simmons? We learned quickly after his mysterious campaigin (Who Is FredSimmon?/Who Is John Galt?) that he  was an Ayn Rand libertarian fanatic. And his grand scheme for Aberdeen was to Annex the Wetlands Golf Course and allow his libertarian paradise of overdevelopement to be built. His libertarian dream was deferred by a mass uprising in Aberdeen and a special referendum election. When that didnt quite put a stake in the heart of the libertarian “land deal” the crazy voters threw Mayor Simmons and one his political allies out of office. I forget his allies name, some grubby mysoginist who self-destucted with his black berry e-mails and other nonsense. That was 2007.  ( Bennett 54.88%-Simmons 37.65%) In 2009 the libertarian   “vampire” tried to return under the guise of Mike Hiob’s challenge to Aberdeen Mayor Bennett. Hiob was for reviving the “land deal” . Its a new ball game. The past is past. Now is now. Wetlands Annex is a  good idea now. Hiob got lots of developer money to run his campaign to take back the “libertarian dream” . Didnt he have a billboard down by the B&O? And the last week of the election  he had this expensive campaign van driving all over town with electronic campaigning messages eminating from it. It was silly .   (Bennett 52.89% – Hiob 39.71%)

      Now  McGrady , the Libertarain Tea Party candidate, wants to “restore honesty to government”. McGrady tells the AberdeenPatch journalists that he’ll have no problem being Mayor  because he has been talking to some of the conservative members of the City Council and they agree with him.  Instantly the conservative members of the City Council  e-mail the AberdeenPatch and deny they have spoke with McGrady and deny agreeing with him.  This is McGrady’s idea of “restoring honesty to government”. Lieing to the press and  the public. (Is that ethical?) He also has no experience.    I wonder why no one ever asked McGradys opinion  about the “land deal”? It doesnt really matter. Because you cant win Aberdeen elections if your in the Tea Party. Its the demographics. You might win in Bel Air or Havre de Grace. But you cant win in Aberdeen. The demographics are rigged against the Tea Party in Aberdeen.

Augusta,Georgia Tea Party Republicans Try To Help Aberdeen Tea Party Republican Patrick McGrady In His Race for Mayor By Distorting Facts About Mayor Bennett’s Visit To Augusta On Behalf of Ripken Stadium Baseball

October 19, 2011

BaltimoreSun   CityStink  The City Stink is a Libertarian Tea Party Blog in Augusta, Georgia.  Lori Davis is one of the main writers for the City Stink. Lori Davis ran for Mayor last year as a Republican Tea Party  {Registered: Republican, Claims: Independent, TeaParty:Associated Not Affilted?} candidate. She was soundly defeated garnering only 18% of the vote. Deke Copenhaver, the Democrat {Registered: Independent, Declined Challenger for U.S. Senate, Democrat}, won with 64% of the vote. Lori Davis and several other writers have been writing about Aberdeen Mayor Michael Bennetts recent visit on behalf of the Ripken Baseball Group. They have distorted the facts about Mayor Bennett and the Ripken Baseball Group. .

The City Stink Tea  Party Republicans write about the Ripken-Aberdeen stadium deal based on the “grab line” in Justin Fentons    article  in the Baltimore Sun. The first line in the story says “The minor league Ripken Stadium , which opened to accalim and sold-out games five years ago, has proved to be such a financial drain to the small town of Aberdeen that the mayor now wants to sell it”  They don’t tell you the rest of the story. They act like they didn’t read the rest of the story. The guts of the story  is not in the overly  simplified dramatic first line meant to hook you. The most important part of the story that the Tea  Party City Stink and  the Tea Party Pat McGrady ignore is the truth they wish to distort. Sun reporter Fenton states, “The True windfall was expected to be the 30 acres of adjacent land for developement, including restarunts, shopping venues and a  movie theatre . Real estate , property and amusement taxes were supposed to bring in $900,000 annually and easily cover the city’s expenses.”   “From the start the viability of the project hinged on development around the stadium only some of which came to fruition.” “The operating expenses of the stadium would never have been completely offset by the income of the stadium (Chris) Flannery said.”       l

BallParkDigest   AugustaChronicle Ball Park Digest reports that : “The problem: the city (of Aberdeen) had  unrealistic expectations of development at the ballpark site SUBSIDIZING DEBT, things like a hotel and retail/restaurant space didnt happen after the economy went south.
