It’s been awhile since Tony lost his seat on the County Council, so there may be some folks who’ve forgotten about his antics. Therefore, as the self-appointed historians of Frederick’s very first county council, we are here to remind y’all why this guy can not be allowed back in that position!
Let’s first share his thoughts on Covid-19 and give thanks he wasn’t in any position empowering him to make public health decisions.
Remember the time he wanted to lease schools? Yeah, we blocked that one out as well.
What about the time he wanted to add an amendment to double the pay of the County Executive? Without consulting anyone else. We are still scratching our heads over that one.
The biggest complaint about Chmelik was his condescending manner, especially when dealing with women. Here’s a taste of that tone.
He also believed that legislation should reflect his religious beliefs.
How could we forget the time he called a “living wage” a political boondoggle passed to please the labor unions?
We will never forget the time we took Kirby’s advice to “follow the money” and found that the person who Tony championed to get the off track betting license in Frederick County also made a large contribution to Tony’s campaign!
And of course we all remember the sour grapes version of Tony when he lost the primary to Steve McKay and then insisted he be a write-in candidate because he was the only true conservative.
And no Tony post is complete without the Chmelik family Christmas photo of yonder years:
One time around with this one was quite enough! If he wins, it may encourage the others to give it another go. Stay vigilant our friends!
