Subject: FREDERICK COUNTY COUNCIL MEMBERS SHREVE AND DELAUTER REQUEST COUNCIL BUDGET DIRECTOR
Frederick County Council Members Billy Shreve and Kirby Delauter request Council Budget Director. Please see press release below for additional information.
Council Member Billy Shreve
12 East Church Street
Frederick, MD 21701
Issued by: Council Members Billy Shreve and Kirby Delauter
Frederick County Council
Email: Billy@FrederickCountyMD.gov<mailto:Billy@FrederickCountyMD.gov> and KDelauter@FrederickCountyMD.gov<mailto:KDelauter@FrederickCountyMD.gov>
Issued January 7, 2016
Wanted – Council Budget Director
Help urgently needed!!!
We are responsible for a budget approaching $600 million and need a budget director. There are seven elected Councilman, but not one of us are accountants or CPAs, and the taxpayers deserve the service they elected us to provide. That’s why I am begging you to apply.
Job description – Sorry. After 13 months in office the council has failed to create a job description. In fact we have no plan to create one, and have no plan moving forward. That’s why am sending out this press release and urgent request for assistance.
If you have any budgeting experience I would like to hear from you. We need to hire someone quickly.
In 25 words or less tell me why we should hire you as our budget director.
Along with that, include in a cover letter if you would like to be full-time, part-time, have benefits, require a retainer, or are simply a company that can provide budget assistance.
Would you like to be hourly, salary, or contracted annually? When can you start?
While you are at it … Attach your resume.
If you can have something to me by noon Tuesday, January 12, 2016 that would be great! If you need more time something by Friday, January 15, 2016 at noon is OK, but I prefer Tuesday.
Send the items to Councilman Shreve & Delauter Billy@FrederickCountyMD.gov<mailto:Billy@FrederickCountyMD.gov>, KDelauter@FrederickCountyMD.gov<mailto:KDelauter@FrederickCountyMD.gov>, Subject line: Budget Director. If needed 301-600-1034.
We are a great group of people, very passionate, and love Frederick County. Unfortunately, for some reason, we have been collectively dysfunctional regarding hiring a budget director.
Unfortunately this is not a joke and we do need to hire a budget director immediately.

Council at Large Council District 5
First of all, why wasn’t the Local Yokel included in this list? Now, our 25 word reply in rhyme:
We budget our twenty-five words
Applying to work for two turds
Who snivel and snit and act as dimwits
So at their ugly mugs we shoot birds.
Remember to respond to both of the council men! Let’s flood their inboxes!

Your email’s puerile
Your words pure bile
The BS streams a mile
A budget director you don’t need
An analyst it should be indeed
for its the Exec you hope to impede.
I cannot believe adults, let alone elected officials, sent out such a casually poorly worded email spiked with rants and unnecessary jabs for a position they have no clue about. They can’t seriously expect anyone within Frederick County to reply with a,”Gosh dangit, that sounds like an opportunity of a lifetime to be able to work with such upstanding and professional folks like Kirby and Delauter! I’ve work on my household budget for over 38 years (if you include my paper route when I was 14), so I guess I’m more than qualified, right? I can sign up as part time, full time, with benefits, and play with 600 million dollars?!…for a job that hasn’t been created or with a plan to move forward. Hand me a crayon! Where do I sign up?!”
