You’ll have to forgive us for our hiatus, but believe us when we say that we haven’t checked out completely. It’s just that our new county council has been cooperating and treating each other like adults! WHAT A REFRESHING CHANGE! ICYMI, The Frederick News Post ran an article about this very subject. Read it here when you get a chance, and look below for a little taste to see why your Lady Yokels were laughing on the floor:
“Things were just so personal from day one on the last council,” Donald said. “Really, if you go back and listen to the speeches people gave where we were sworn in, it got combative really quickly. And this time we’ve just tried to really keep the personal out of it.”
The infighting prompted a critical piece from The Washington Post in January 2015, less than two months into the first council.
“It actually has been a surprise,” Keegan-Ayer said. “I look at what’s going on elsewhere at the state and the national level … and I’m like OK, Frederick County is like this little hub of bliss. I don’t know how long it’s going to last, but for as long as it’s here, I’m going to enjoy it, because it’s a big change from what we had before.”
Now that is the understatement of the year! We don’t know if we will ever get over those four years!
Anyhoo, the agenda for this evening looks a little like this:
Doesn’t look like anything really controversial tonight, but if you feel the need pick your favorite summer cocktail and sip away. No need to destroy your liver this time around!
