You should all be happy to hear that I am going to try not to post any more comments. I am walkingRead Morea way for this hornets nest of negativity. Vic - I hope to celebrate with you at the Flanders on May 13th!

Steve......agree. Both incumbents need to go. Good post

Roads are bad! But The city so working on the roads. In order to do that you try to replaceRead Moreinfras tructure underneath first. You use cold patch to cover the work until you can mill and pave. You can only pave when it's warm. The asphalt plants close JAn through March. On top of that you get a bad winter. Then you factor in the Summer Season. Result is about 6 months to do a years worth of work.

Something should be done. So many roads are mainly patches. Seven years ago we bought a beautifulRead Moreho me in Ocean City, pay taxes in excess of 20k per year, and were sure the streets were ready for upgrading soon. We were willing to wait. How long has the 5 year plan been in effect? Still waiting for roads in the Gardens to get some much needed attention. Visitors to the area are noticing. Prospective buyers are noticing. I would think real estate would move faster if the roads were in line with housing costs. Who wants to buy a big expensive house on a road made of patches? I did because I had faith in the city government to pay more attention to the infastructure. Still waiting.

Nancy is correct. Roads in the Gardens are awful. Some haven t been repaved in over 40 years. ForRead Moret he amount of taxes I pay, I expect more than just trash pick up!

Jesus give it a REST! Since when do you buy the perps story over the cops? That's right, since youRead Morea re a liberal tree hugger, cops are automatically the bad guys. Different places, different circumstances.

Great!! Keep up the good work Ocean City Police - these actions are good and badly needed!!

As I walk along Wesley Ave., I am amazed at the speed of cars on this road with a posted 25 mphRead Morelim it. Complicating the speeding issue is what I call "power on turns." I began noticing this phenom a couple of years ago. It consists of drivers putting the pedal to the metal as they go around corners. Foot traffic is another problem. The sense of entitlement of pedestrians creates havoc especially at intersections. People will jaywalk, cross against the light, or just blindly walk into the street. We don't seem capable of managing our impulses when it comes to driving or even walking. If the police didn't "police," the town would be impossible to navigate.

I thought I read there are two more debates scheduled. If Mayor Gillian had family plans, then iRead Morehop e we would extend understanding before throwing all these stones. Mr.Sauder, I agree that it would be helpful to have the debates televised. It can be tricky for young parents or elderly people to get out to see the debates first hand. However, I am disappointed in your comments regarding the Mayor's inability to attend that other debate. From what I have heard and read about you, I had a different picture of a more openminded leader. You may have lost my vote. Please consider going right to the source of concern, before making public comments. I would have respected that kind of choice much more.

The Mayor could have rescheduled when he had a conflict, but he declined so one can only assumeRead Morethat the Mayor did not find it important enough or maybe he wants to avoid debating. I don't think Eric was "throwing stones." If this is how you choose a council person, J.K., no wonder we have a council full of the Mayor's puppets (except for Pete) The Mayor has lined up council to go along with him on everything. There are no checks and balances with this set up. People need to make informed decisions about the candidates views and community priorities, not decide they aren't voting for someone with a ridiculous reason like J.K. here. Remember, Mayor Gillian, if he had a conflict, need only reschedule and he chose not to reschedule he just blew it off completely.

Sometimes it makes me very sad to live in this kind of community...when people feel comfortableRead Morebein g nasty no matter what, our little town isn't so comfy anymore. I wonder what gives anyone the right to react to someone else's views in such a negative manner. I do not think it is ridiculous to choose a candidate who does his/her homework before making public comment. I was considering voting for Mr.Sauder based on the idea that he does not seem to have any "ties" to anyone in town. I was thinking I would make an informed choice. But, then I read his comment here and was discouraged. Ms.O'Connor, I am allowed to my opinion, regardless if you think it is ridiculous or not. I hope the best for our town.

Mayor Gillian does not like to debate. There is a really good reason for that. He is notRead Moreaccountab le for his actions in Ocean City any more than anyone else is. Mayor Gillian is a player - he plays with the developers and the realtors (a realtor is his campaign manager) he keeps them happy by selling Ocean City to them He keeps himself happy by taking very good care of the boardwalk he keeps the "in" crowd in and the "out" crowd away He is Ocean City past and he is afraid of a debate let your fine upstanding campaign manager speak for you, Mayor. How low can you go?
Kathy O'Connor April 14, 2014 at 08:38 AM
And please - vision for the future? There is no long term plan for OC. This is about getting asRead Moremu ch money in the pockets of the realtors and developers as possible. When the Mayor hires a realtor to be his campaign manager, is there really any doubt what is going on here? Gillian did not show up for a debate with Hinchman either. Realtors and developers have turned OC into a joke - with the help of Gillian and the Gillians before him. A vote for Gillian is a vote against progress. It is a vote for the developers and the realtors (like his campaign manager)

I "was" undecided until the Mayor, who professes over and over to LOVE OC, did not showRead Moreup for the first debate he was invited to. A lot of OC people he loves soooo much were there…….complete disrespect for all of them. I am for Ed Price
