Democrat Jim Mathias withdraws his support for a Wicomico County elected school board

Clearly Jim Mathias did not learn a thing about why Norman Conway lost his seat. Now he will have to learn the hard way - as his butt will be toast come next election. There will be no elected school board for Wicomico County.

What a joke. I can no longer support Jim. He has let everyone down. He doesn't mind getting people to vote for him but he won't allow the people of Wicomico County to vote for a school board?

What an asswipe this will give him more time to drive for his disaster company truck that he gets contracts from the government.

NOW THE BOE WANTS A 5.8 RAISE WTF

I think the key point is, what would it hurt and what do they have to hide.

One commenter made a good point the other day, something I had said quite some time ago. Be careful what you wish for.

The BOE would fund a TON of money to make sure the likes of Barrie Tilghman, Mike Dunn, Lynn Cathcart, Louise Smith, Jim Ireton and such would be elected onto that Board and Fredericksen would still control everything.

What this says though is, Jim Mathias is bought and paid for with special interests. He refused to hear the citizens of Wicomico County and I believe this is the end of his political career.

Over the next 3.6 years we will continue to expose Jim like he's never experienced before. Heck, maybe we'll stop after 2.5 years as we ALL know Jim will simply say what the public wants to hear the last year before the election. We'll just recap all his BS from here on out.

Does anyone know if there is a recall process we can invoke?

I would contribute!

He ignored my call and e-mail and my vote wasn't enough last cycle...

A recall or the next election he is eligible for can't come soon enough!

Just another career politician. If you have nothing to offer him he will not even talk to you.

JoeAlbero said...

I'll add, who in Wicomico County has seen or heard from Jim Mathias since the election. Good Lord the voters were stupid not to elect McDermott. You better pray to your lucky stars McDermott would be willing to run again.

I sent him a text yesterday around 5:00. I said, "elected, not appointed".

His answer, "I did not select the piojo Herrera..."

I don't know what that means other than "never vote for me again"!

Steve said...

Let's just start the recall now while McDermott is still free to take the Helm.

JoeAlbero said...

Should the community choose to do so, we will participate in every way possible to recall the man.

Look, I have known Jim for some 30 years and quite frankly I've seen enough.

When and if the citizens get on board, we will too. I'm not so sure it will work but I agree with the one commenter who said it will send a loud and clear message, people are absolutely fed up.

He is pandering to the left wing base.

He was the master of pandering during his time as OC mayor.

I find it interesting that now he cares about minority voices, but when he was mayor he wanted to turn Ocean City into the white collar beach of the North East. He wasn't in the pocket of the developers for more affordable housing I can tell you that.

As a matter of fact, he did as much as humanly possible to get the reasonable places to stay torn down.

He obviously cares more about Worcester County than he does Wicomico. Does Worcester County have an elected school board?

Gary Bullard. He called you a louse and he is an iron man. Google it. One effing sick elected of official. We are taking his butt down in 3 1/2 years. Are you in?

Whether or not we could have him recalled and another election,at the least, we need to build a 'big enough fire that he's sweating from the heat(flames)'

This asswipe needs to go back to Ocean City and stay there.

He just lost all of our family votes as well as a whole lot of others. Apparently he doesn't believe in democracy as this entire issue should be put to referendum and let the voters decide. We had great hope with him and now we know he's just "Another Politician." Next election can't come soon enough but a recall may be just what is needed as he obviously is not a believer in our democracy.

People before the 4 years are up he will support the elected school board so you will vote for him. Don't be fooled and never forget what a loser he is. And BTW, his wife Kathy was a fabulous person who he lived off of all of their marriage. And he put a bill in the next year after her death in her name and took his girlfriend to the signing. Ain't he a class act? Can we say trash.

Let the people vote on it. What happened to a country that is by the people and for the people?
Does Worcester County have an elected board?

Anonymous said...

I guess everyone understands that Worcester County/Ocean City wanted him out of their way so they convinced him to run for another position and they keep voting for him to keep him away from them.

Like when did he ever support an elected school board?

He's another Democrat BS artist like Liarton and Fake Day.

Mathias cares about nothing except himself. His demeanor or is an act and we will rid ourselves of the likes of him in 2018.

It's time some of the people that did cocaine with him years ago stand up.

You Wicomico wingnuts could have helped elect Mike McDermott but were too stupid to do that.

Happy Now?

I will never forgot how he pushed ahead of me as if he was someone very important at a funeral of a local businessman several years ago. I lost all respect for him from then on he certainly lost my vote the last election. Unfortunately, there were people blind sided and voted him in over McDermott. Mathias is worthless in my eyes!

All of the AM pressure squeezed out the truth.The path of least resistance is not the way Mike operates,but it appears to be Bob's MO.

Please excuse my previous comment,duh,I meant Jim.

Tay said...

He might not be running for senate next year, maybe democratic governor and jim ireton said he's other political seats, he might run for governor too or take him Mathis seat and he even said he not sure if he's running again. Go on YouTube and go to pac14 and watch the interview, it was posted today. I hope joe would post it on hear so that everyone could look at. 2018 might be another crazy year cause democrats want there seats back.

It's not his job to follow the lead of the uneducated. It's his job to do what's best for the community, and he is.

This is crap on Mathias' part. It will come back to haunt him at election time. I can't imagine how he can justify not pushing this bill forward.

Having said that, Hogan & the local Republicans have a real opportunity to get some good conservatives on the school board RIGHT NOW. There are two vacant seats. Larry Dodd resigned for the County Council & Marvin Blye moved out of State. Bob Culver better be whispering names in the Governor's ear, and the Republican Club & Central committee needs to stop whining and start recruiting ASAP.

Joe, How about if you run a list of potential names & let commenters suggest more names.
You could vet candidates right here & people can ask questions.

It's not his job to follow conways lead. We sent Norms a$$ home just like we are going to do to this jerk.

8:53 I agree with you. Democracy is always best for any community. A fair referendum vote will take care of this. After all, we still live in a democracy and the people have the right to choose so put it to a vote.

i don't think we should wait until the next election...we should work now to recall him...i'm in for sure and will happily go and get signatures

Gary said...

POS just like the rest of the liberals that swear they know best how we should,live our lives. When will people finally wake the hell up!

Anonymous said...

Seriously, between this and the PMT report that came out right AFTER the election, what is the process to start a recall campaign - and will Mike help by running against Liberal Jim again?!

lmclain said...

"....follow the lead of the uneducated." THAT is your take on this???? LOL!
Mathias follows the lead of money.
And you can't stop cheering.

I hope those who supported and voted for this POS can now see the other face of this two faced snake in the grass.

In my 56 yrs. of being a resident of Wicomico county I have never been active in politics beyond voting but now I am compelled to remove this a**wipe from office! If a recall petition is started I will volunteer to go to every door in his district to gather signatures, I am self employed and will shut down for the drive! If he comes up for re-election I will do the same to convince people NOT to vote for a self interest career politician...whatever it takes to remove him!

Well said Joe and I am going to be posting dirt I have on the loser.

Please someone start a recall on this a$$wipe. I did not vote for him I voted for McDermott and I will certainly get out there and collect signatures to get rid of him. Do not wait, 2018 is too far away, we need to be rid of this bad disease right now.

Those that ignorantly voted for this crook over McDermott need to start the petition

I smell a payoff! Wonder what sweetheart deal was made between him and the BOE? Maybe another audit may be in order?

I also voted for McDermott. Can't believe anyone in their right mind would have voted for him. Just another arrogant liberal!

What a piss poor reflection of the eastern shore. This man has no scruples and ought to be removed from office. He is nothing more than a slim ball.
