Romper Room Anyone?

Julia Glanz
Salisbury City Administrator
By Thornton Crowe

Has City Hall become a who's who edition of Teen Beat Magazine? At this point, we don't know but its sure looking that way, isn't it?

Well, it's nice to see City Administrator Julia Glanz is putting her contacts to work for us. She's now appointed two 10-year-olds to City government under the guise of Deputy City Administrators. Neither looks like they're old enough to have a driver licenses, let alone sit on a barstool next our Boy Mayor and his little buddies.

This is what happens when you put chickadees in charge of the hen house; you get a bunch of kiddies running around doing nonsense instead of having true change agents working to make Salisbury a better place to live for all its residents.

Alison Pulcher
Alison Pulcher looks like she hasn't run a comb through her hair since about 2000 and is a stranger to the make-up counter at Macy's. Meanwhile, Andy Kitzrow looks like he just got into long pants about three days ago and doesn't even shave but once a week. These are leaders for a city? They're a sideshow clown car joke which has become the moniker for the whole Jake Day Administration?

Just how did these two wow them at the interview? Bring cupcakes and designer, free-range fed cow milk or dance to the latest Katy Perry tune?

Holy Batman Capers, I'd hope we'd be able to do a bit better than this!

While I'm sure these two youngsters are nice people, nice doesn't get changes done to the city that benefit folks of all ages. Instead you can expect more free smoke detector/hot dog raids and other such insidious balderdash that amounts to Third Fridays 24/7.

Hence, this will not bring JOBS back to Salisbury -- which everything from jobs creates all the things we love like entertainment choices, solid infrastructure and wide variety in housing options.

Andy Kitzrow
Instead, we get the hood with cupcakes at the helm. And what will this get us? Absolutely nothing. Actually, no, I'm wrong, it will get us worse than we've experienced in the past.

Sorry, kids, but it's looking more and more like this whole Julia Glanz experiment is a just a big fat bust. Clearly, she's not qualified to do the job she's in, much less hire competent, qualified people for other local government positions.

Was she really our only option to replace her predecessor? A hipster from Long Island? Really? Do you think she knows anything about Salisbury from her vast 8 years living here? The only thing she's good at is 'sucking up' in all the right places. Other than that, she's a dismal disaster of a nightmare in her current position as we can attest given her recent hires.

Doesn't Salisbury deserve better than this three-ring circus of lunacy? Don't you want to leave something for your kids besides a dilapidate shack with zero market value in one of our illustrious Smallsbury slums?

It's your call, folks... but hey, I'm just a man asking questions...

andy kid rock should have never left rec and parks. he had it made like all of the other supervisors there do. He's a legend in his own mind which is also comparable to the other supervisors there.

Are the two newly-appointed deputy city administrators bar buddies of the city administrator? This would say a lot about the selection process.

Paladin said...

Dear readers,

Upon reviewing this, and the selected applicants, I was astonished to see that a colleague with a double masters and more than two decades of experience was not granted so much as an interview. To me this shows a clear agenda, and one not vested in the best interests of he citizens of Salisbury. In my opinion, Mr. Day is not effective, and his subordinates will prove to be otherwise as well.

Regards,


Paladin

Neither one of these little ones has the time on this earth to have any experience needed to do the jobs they were hired. It's just a reality. Toughen up, snowflakes. This proves millennials don't let their friends start at the bottom and work their way up anymore, which is bad for them and bad for us!

Anonymous said...

Amen, Paladin. I know many with masters degrees looking for gigs and none got interviews from the city for these positions. NONE. Julia probably doesn't want anyone working under her who has more degrees and experience than she. Its a sign of a bad manager. People who hire people dumber than they are usually get dummied down in the process. She's proven she wants to be head rooster in the house. Even made her wife take her last name not the other way around or better yet a hyphen.

Isn't that the gal who married a girl on the Plaza? She can hire people? God help us. We'll be sh**ting 🌈 s before we know it.

Better than Romper Room because these millennials don't get that joks, it should be Jake's Magical Mystery Tour or Jake's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

The only reason Alison got the job is because she was Jakes campaign manager.

I guess that is a criteria for extreme vetting in Jakes book.

Did anyone see the post where Jake supports the Paris Agreement. Even though he knows nothing about it.

Mayor Jacob R. Day is proud to stand with nearly 300 mayors from across the nation in support of the Paris Agreement. With certifications as a Sustainable Maryland city, a Sustainable Growth community, and a Maryland Energy Smart community, Salisbury is dedicated to the protection and preservation of our environment and natural resources, and Mayor Day’s commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement acts as a formal reaffirmation of this dedication.

"The problem is that we're just not adding people at the same rate that we're adding jobs," Day said.


WHAT?

12:59 Ifvwhat you are saying is true then every resident in Salisbury should be calling the Mayors office right now. These people serve YOU the city taxpayers! And it was up to them to hire the BEDT candidate for the job to serve you. Not the best friend of the Mayor.

Cronyism over competence and qualified candidates. This is absolutely disgusting and the dynamic duo Day/Glanz should be ashamed of themselves. They could've picked millennials with a bit more qualifications than this but chose to go with buddies.

Age and experience....except in Royalty instances....have been your typical leadership go to individuals...always have and always will be. You can't learn those skills any other way. Fresh and new ideals are always welcomed...but there's no doubt these two have neither.

There's nothing wrong with hiring young people for jobs but not starting at the level these two are stating. It's a slap in the face to all the people who've worked the love jobs (for free) and paid their dues working as underlings fetching coffee and donuts for Devil Wears Prada like bosses. These two don't even look like they're out of high school much less college. Apprenticeships is not hiring at the top levels, then where does one advance to? Thank God these critters will be out of their jobs once we elect a new mayor. SMGDH

You'd think these two would give pictures for print to show them at their best, not some impromptu image from Facebook. Only think missing is a Natty Bo can and a blunt. Who is the PR person for the city? They should've required these two have professional pictures taken before broadcasting their mugs everywhere. Good Lord.

The city doesn't have money to pay Dudek to do pictures probably.

For lack of a better phrase April and sorry but I've forgotten the African American man's name on the council but they really need to either poop or get off the pot. Salisbury has done nothing ever that benefits the minority communities.
They will be quick to say the proposed affordable housing but that's not a benefit. There are enough rentals. Salisbury is critically high in rentals now. Home ownership should be the goal and the only goal.
They should be demanding an investigation into this.

Any benefit of the doubt I had given the boy mayor evaporated today. Mayor Day you are clearly out of your depth. You have taken an office desperate for integrity and honor after your lunatic predecessor and done NOTHING to raise the bar. I am profoundly disappointed in your tenure. Resign.

No doubt there would 100 times this many comments here if the mayor was a republican pulling this kind of crap. It's really sad how the people are here. They're so complacent until the stuff is already done, then they're all up in arms ready to take Omaha Beach alone with their musket.

TC is only saying the same thing we all thought when we saw the ridiculous announcement but he's not politically correct. He's not afraid to say what we don't dare say. What's wrong with it? I agree with him. Glad he's got the set to do it.

The only reason to give an $70-$80k a year job to person with no degree other than a high school diploma, and very little job experience other than helping out on a political campaign (which my daughter in high school also did, by the way), is because she's a friend of Jake Day. No doubt, she was guaranteed this job before the announcement was even written. Sorry to all those qualified, experienced, and degree-holding individuals who wasted their time applying when they never had a chance.

Wasn't there money unaccounted for during Day's campaign? Why hire his campaign manager then??? Hmmmmm......

How in the hell does managing a Facebook page make her qualified to manage a city???? My guess is these two were the only joker's even interviewed.

The individuals appointed do not have the soft and hard skill sets to do these jobs - work experience like this is acquired over a significant period of time - unfortunately, these individuals have not earned the positions - youth has its advantages, but experience is not one of them

Google youngest CEO's and you will see plenty of similar looking people worth millions. You can't judge people solely on looks because they don't wear the same ray ban prescription glasses and button down shirts like every business person in the 50-60-70's. Old people just don't understand how companies make billions of dollars with game rooms, nap stations, massage therapists and free gourmet chefs making whatever the employees want to eat.

Don't know what you guys are complaining about. They look like the kind of people who would represent this area. A lot more white trash here than anything else so they do represent the area just fine. As for Jake's big plans to make this some metro hub, with people like this working for him, he's smoking dope. Gay men are notoriously well dressed and take pride in the way they look. These two country bumpkins would never appeal to the metrosexual and homosexual males because they look like hicks.

9:54 AM - While she was working for Sby Housing she was, I believe, somehow connected to the planning of the Sby Parking Lot Festival.

I believe, she was an MC for opening events.

Not sure how Sby Housing is connected to a city event, when in fact, Sby Housing is a non profit.

Plain and simple, besides running his campaign, she might somehow be related, but it is clear there is a long standing connection between them somehow, either family or daddy.

Joe you really should do a rebuttal to the Daily Litter Liners story promoting their hatred on this one.
