Annapolis Council To Consider Ensuring Eventual Flip of Council To Republican Control.

There. Fixed the title for them.

Annapolis Council To Consider Stripping Republican Mayor-Elect’s Power

Days after a Republican was elected mayor of Annapolis, City Council members say they will revisit legislation that would strip the mayor’s office of much of its power.

[snip]

If the measure is approved, it would mean the Democratic-dominated council would be removing the powers of the first Republican mayor elected since 1997.

Yeah. I can’t possibly see how that could turn out badly for the local Democratic party in the long run.

PS: Annapolis Democrats are, of course, claiming that the timing of this is a complete coincidence.  I note this claim for the record.

    Hey Moe, where in Maryland do you live?

      Apparently the bad part. Which is probably marginally economically better then the good part aka the panhandle coal country part of MD that’s getting hammered by both O’Malley and Obama.

        The “bad part” is doing more than marginally better mostly because it suckles at the federal teat. The “good part” is being gerrymandered into irrelevance and taxed/fee’d/tolled into submission.

    I live in ol’ Naptown. To be fair, the town manager idea has been kicking around for several years. In part, because the council and the last mayor, Moyer (who is a D and was the wife of a former mayor) did not like the current, outgoing mayor, Cohen (also a D). They traded caustic Op/Ed’s in the local paper over the re-development of the city dock and historic district (been bungled for decades). That said, I didn’t think Cohen was all that bad, for a Democrat. The optics lend themselves to assuming the issue is only being resurrected because the new guy is a R. That’s not an unfair interpretation though, and many hold it. The whole thing is not going over all that well here.
