A Viewer Writes: John Cannon's Motives?

Looking for some clarification. With everything going on currently between the City and the County Council, I am beginning to wonder where John Cannon's true support lies. Does he have the best interests of the County residents in mind or is he simply trying to line his pockets by keeping Jake Day happy? It seems he is always at odds with Executive Culver instead of trying to work with him. It's obvious that he is only looking for votes to replace Culver and is constantly allowing Jake Day and the City to dictate what the county does. He was elected to establish what is best for the COUNTY not the CITY OF SALISBURY. It's common knowledge that John Cannon has several rental properties located within city limits. Does this create a bias when it comes to him being on the county council?

In addition, I am not trying to beat a dead horse, but he recently sent a letter to Executive Culver in regards to the new Fire Station 13. Does anyone else find it fishy that he would request the home and work addresses of those members to determine whether or not they will be able to respond to an emergency when it happens. Is this standard practice or a standard request from all county fire stations? Just think it is a little bit far reaching especially when the council has already been provided with a membership list for this new station. In addition to that, why does he still continue to fight this new station when its on record the failing response times for SFD? THIS WOULD MAKE A HUGE BENEFIT TO THE COUNTY RESIDENCE AND ALSO TO SFD DUE TO LIMITING THE AREA THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR but that would go against Jake's agenda so that wouldn't be a good idea.

Can anyone shed any light on why Mr. Cannon seems to support the City more that the County he was elected to represent?

John Cannon is not only a traitor to the Republican party but one of the County as well! He is pimping politics instead of doing his GD job! Both Jake and John are two peas of an inert pod which need to be removed from office come their re-elections and this time, don't look back. When he was unceremoniously outed the first time, this should've been a clue to him to amscray but he didn't get the message. Cannon along with Day are working hard to destroy this area so they and their buddies can profit big off the backs of hardworking taxpayers. You continue to support this Toxic Twin brigade then you are chumps (to quote Malcolm X). They don't deserve your votes any more than they deserve any position within our government - and that includes street cleaners!

Who else is onto John Cannon at this point? If you don't get his truth by now, you never will. He's a slumlord for God's sake. Wake up people. If you think he wants you to prosper, you are sorely mistaken. He's a pimp dressed like a yuppie.

I am willing to bet he will be running for Mayor sometime in the future.

1039 Mayor? Really? John Cannon is too power drunk to run for mayor. His sights are much higher than a mere $25K a year gig. He's probably fixing to run for governor or some other elected position he's not qualified to do but thinks he is. He's such a joke you forget to laugh.

Anonymous said...

10:41 AM Oh my dear child, you have no idea how it works and he cant go from county council to governor and he is getting to old to climb the political ladder, so the best he can do to control his environment is mayor. And if he is successful and has the backers he can hold on to that for quite awhile.

Anonymous said...

Anyone that's lived in the City or County knows that Cannon's position almost always reflects what best for HIM!

Once upon a time I supported John for office including financially. NEVER AGAIN! His true colors have emerged and his actions are those of a self-serving, arrogant, entitled blow-hard. He does NOTHING to help the County. I completely agree that he is "in it" for himself and no one else. He is undermining Culver, but ironically is making himself look ineffective and obstructionist. I am not thrilled with Culver, but he is head and shoulders above Cannon. BOTH of them need to STAND UP to Day and the City and protect this County! Election is coming and both need to go unless they show some courage to stand for the citizens of the COUNTY!

I would be interested in the address also. If the volunteers live to far away they may not be able to respond in a timely manner. If this is the case then they will have to pull duty hours which I believe the chief of Salisbury asked new incoming members to do. If they are going to pull duty hours then what is the point of starting a new station or fixing that which is not broke. A problem I see is the addresses are looked at I don't know that response times from home to station can be figured being no one knows where the station is going to be.

Anonymous said...

The group of volunteers that decided to leave the station one firehouse, had serious problems with failing response times. It is not fair, to not make that known also.

Cannon cant stand up to Day. Cannon has too many city rentals. Things could get expensive for him if he went against Day.

The pulling duty hours was not the issue . Some more bs far from the truth. Do you ask other stations for there addresses no .

Anonymous said...

There addresses are there personal life which who cares as long as the fire truck responds

Anonymous said...

I've asked that station as a concerned citizen and about 80 percent of there members live with in 1 to 4 miles .

Anonymous said...

There response times were in the 80 percentile. Call central do the math . The fire chief adjusted the numbers to 4 mins as a scratch .

They were the best responding station in the city as vollys

Cannon is slimy and slick. He needs to go. For a county person elected by the people not willing to stand behind the firefighters of this county needs to be canned. He thinks he can Trump culver to not likely jonny

You have to understand, John Cannon is an owned man. He has no accomplishments of his own unlike his brother and sister. He took over Daddy's business and continues to tread off that accomplishment instead of continuing on in TV which he should've done. John was a great cameraman and probably could've been a great filmmaker if he had the wherewithall to get out of Salisbury. It's easy to be the big fish in a tiny pond and John didn't go out into the real world to stake his own claim! Instead, he stuck around because the Bury was safe. Now he wants to wreck the very place that gave him a peacefully prosperous existence all these decades.

Disappointed in Cannon. All I can do is shake my head. He used to be a fun person, now he's just a shark in loafers. John, what the f happened to you, dude?

1241 he got old and disgruntled from staying in daBury and he's drunk on power. Power f's a lot of folks up bad. John is no exception. I miss hanging out with him too but what can you do?

Anonymous said...

There is not one fire station that is 100% with response time.
Just trying to make a point that a certain group should not be called out for not being perfect on their response time, which probably is due to a high volume of calls going on. ALL fire stations have had that problem at one time. That is the truth.

Read the latest letter from the Wicomico County Council (signed by President John Cannon) to Executive Culver and see where the problem lies. IMO Culver is overstepping his boundaries. Of course when you have the head of SBYNews not divulging the whole story, or the letter many are left in the dark. Without all the facts it is easy to see why you all are trashing Cannon;

I Threw Up My Lemonade When I Read Your Stupid Asinine Comment said...

226 why don't you READ the CHARTER, then your opinion you'll see is in error. Bob Culver is within his scope and is doing his job. The agreement phase where Johnny can come in and run his mouth isn't even there yet but John-boy jumped shark like a hysterical ninny after his big forensic audit went bust when evidence was presented to prove the nothingburger it really was. Apparently, you're a low-informed voter who doesn't educate yourself on simple crap you can find online by reading the Charter Johnny is supposed to be following along with everyone else in the county. Quit being such a schmuck and go inform yourself.

at least culver is trying to do good things for wicomico county. more than cannon can say. all he ever does is sit around writing up letters and leaking sh&& to the press. as for doing anything of substance for the county, you're looking at the wrong guy as your big hero 226

Nobody can convince me that Cannon hasn't gone by way of plastic. He's a faker. 226 you sound like ignorant.

Why don't they pull the stupid agreement . It's pointless who give the city power in the county area. What a bunch of skulls .

Pull that agreement with the city and this problem is over . The other county stations can move in some .

Pull the agreement and pay the county stations more money.

The problem lies with the city and SFD. Day is overstepping AND basically siding with SFD to stay in favor with his buddies, not for the better of the fire and EMS service. Day was over his head on day one, the only reason he is mayor is there was no one running against him that was qualified. Fact is Station 1 response time was way better than Station 2 vollies who scratch all the time. But you don't hear about that as it doesn't fit the SFD agenda in this matter as SFD feels station 2 is backing them. Station 2 has at least twice tried to break away, but they didn't have their sh** together to do so. It is time for the county to handle county and city handle city. Quit dealing with the city they are only looking for money from the county as they can't handle their finances. And get rid of that fool Hoppes while you're at it. Cannon needs to go to as he's sucking up to the city for favors for his rentals instead of working for the residents.

Do you all realize that the city is in Wicomico county? City residents pay county taxes. They should have a say in what goes on in the county. If you don't want them to, stop taxing them.

Who wouldn't be an old disgruntled F*** if you had to live the life he does. He oversees an empire if dilapidated pieced together welfare houses. His father did the bare minimum fixing their properties for decades and now Cannon's only hope is to keep a position on county council to make his shady deals to keep everyone off his ass

Cannon definitely needs to go as well as the majority of those affiliated with both county and city councils and government. They've merely used this platform as some sort of popularity forum, an ego boost, a sense of feeling some kind of relevance, importance

John Cannon was recently at the Willards Town Council meeting. So what is up with that? He seems to be showing up at odd places trying to get his name out there. NAACP meetings and parades. You know he is up to something.

Is he trying to run for County Executive or State Delegate(again) or Congress? It's more than wanting to be a council member.

John Cannon also takes side with Boi Mare Jake Day and wants to remove the General Winder marker and move it down to Westside where General Winder actually lived. Cannon needs to go.

I have to agree with you 100%. You know it's funny when a hick from podunk Somerset County beats John Cannon in the race for State Delegate.

Now back to him winning the at Large race in Wicomico County. Look at his competition? Muir Boda and Laura Mitchell. LMAO

I have a feeling that John Cannon is either going to run for the House of Delegates and try to unseat Chris Adams or run for County Executive and try to unseat Bob Culver.

I talked to Marc Kilmer about replacing him as the Council President and Kilmer told me he was happy with Cannon as President and was going to work to keep him in that position. So Marc Kilmer is guilty of supporting John Cannon.

John never has good or noble intentions. He can be rotten to the core when he wants to be. He can also be charming when he wants to be, too. Just wish the charming would come out more than the jerk.
