    Never much in the way of specifics to speak of...just generalizations.

    How shocking.......
    I don't even know the name of the guy running against Ben Cardin, but that's who I voted for.

    I'm boycotting Democrats. All of them.

    When it comes to county level elections - I don't vote. I have no idea who is who or what they're going to do.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt

    Well, Michael Hawkins, a candidate for Sheriff in Calvert County feeely admitted in his self written biography that he is “too black” for Calvert. That’s interesting. The perspective from a racist man with a gun and power over the Deputies would certainly create fodder.

    I've always been happy with Tim has been Sheriff. In fact, I've voted for him the last three elections. I am hearing quite a bit of negative scuttlebutt in recent weeks but I'm guessing that goes with the election season. Mostly has to do with the notion that Tim might be too far removed from the day to day operations and moral has fallen causing a lot of departures. At present, there are 26 vacancies in a department that has 120 billets.

    Wow..had not heard about that. Are most of the vacancies for deputies?...do they have that many patrol vehicles just parked too? I only know maybe three guys on the force there any more...all the rest have retired and so will the remainder of those I know, very soon.

    Your information is not correct. There are 133 budgeted positions for law enforcement and 10 deputy vacancies as of this month.
