City’s Hurricane Irene Transaction With Councilman Questioned

OCEAN CITY --A city councilman denied this week any abuse of power when he served more than $3,300 in meals to emergency responders during Hurricane Irene a year ago.

Earlier this month, this publication received a letter alleging Hall’s Restaurant conducted business during Hurricane Irene when all other operators did not have the benefit of making money. The letter contains allegations that at least are partially true.

To determine the validity of the charges, specifically whether Hall’s Restaurant completed a business transaction with the city during Hurricane Irene, this newspaper filed a Freedom of Information Act request and obtained city receipts and credit card transactions confirming the charge.

Is there a similarity between Joe Biden and Joe Hall? Some say that Joe Biden is like an uncle that shows up drunk for Christmas dinner that nobody understands his jokes. Hmmmm.....
