Progressive Jake Day is a big spender of other people's money

Hi Everyone,

I have a way to get money for the homeless and give a raise to our police and hire more police in the City of Salisbury. Get out your calculators:

Let's pretend Salisbury is a biking community. Here's a rhetorical question, what % of the population makes us a biking community, our population is about 33,000 people? I was told there were hundreds of people in the bike club, not thousands (I don't believe it anyway). But let's just say, for arguments sake, we have 900 bikers in this community. That is 2.37% of the total population. The council just approved ANOTHER 3.3 million dollars to be spent on the biking community (I was there and witnessed this expenditure). With just those numbers alone, we are spending $3666 per biker. (To bring this into perspective, we have about 900 homeless in the Salisbury area). Now let's talk some real numbers. If we have 300 bicyclists in our community and we spent 8 million dollars (which is much closer to the real number) on bike lanes, which includes widening roads, etc... We are spending 26,666.67 dollars per biker. I am not including the bike races we have here where thousands of bikers from all over come into Salisbury to compete. If we did not spend money on bicyclists we would have 8,889 dollars we could spend on each homeless individual (based on a 900 person homeless population). If we cut that money in half we would have enough money to give raises to our police force, be able to hire more police, and help the homeless. Put a calculator on it.

In short; this guy is a typical progressive liberal that has no idea how to prioritize our tax money.

BTW, we need a conservative Salisbury resident to run against Muir Boda. He is not a republican and he told me, to my face, that he is voting for Jake Day for mayor. He also said if I want the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) on last years Folk Festival that I have to call the National Folk Festival to find out how our tax money was spent. He also said that no one in City Hall knew about the killing of the geese. He suggested at first they can't control the Fed and they just decided to kill them... then he changed his mind. He said a Salisbury resident must have called the USDA and complained about the geese and that's why they came down and killed them. He said that Jake and no one on the council knew anything about the geese murders until someone called and complained.

I asked him about the 13 story high rise and where people were going to park. He said that they are building a bridge from the high rise to the parking garage and they can park on the 3rd floor. I asked him how many parking spaces are up there, he said he did not know. Well, the county rents that 3rd floor parking anyway, so the answer is really zero.

Then I asked him how about the large parking lot across from where the high rise is going up (it is behind the courthouse on Rt. 13 and holds over 250 cars.) He said he can't tell me because it was discussed in a private session of the council and I was not privy to that information because the lot is being sold. I asked him who was buying the parking lot across from where the high rise is going up. Again, he said he can't tell me. That is our land people, we should know. No transparency.

Then I asked him why we are spending millions of dollars on bike lanes when we are not a bike community. He agreed we were not a bike community yet, but we will be. So I said, "so we are going to force people to ride bikes, like a 300lb man?". On rainy days when people do want to drive, there will be no parking. Aren't we going to need parking if the downtown is actually revitalized?

I also asked him why our roads and sidewalks weren't being fixed. He said 25 of the construction people were fired... not sure, but I think he said the county did it.

I never saw a person say so many lies in such a short amount of time in my life. And guess who is feeding him these lies.

Anyway, I packed my stuff up and said I will never come to another Republican Club meeting as long as I see Muir's face there. He's a mole and a liar. And I have been told he is the vice-president of the republican committee. HOLY CRAP!!!! No wonder Republicans can't get anything done in this city.

I am here to clean this crap up, and if you elect me, one of the first things I am going to do is bring a private CPA Auditing Firm in to Audit our City. Haven't the people of Salisbury had enough of the lies, corruption and deception.

Yours Truly,
Wayne King
Candidate for Mayor of the City of Salisbury

Mr. King,

I wish you all the best with what appears to be a very common sense, conservative agenda to right the sinking ship that is the city of Salisbury. I left the area over a decade ago when I noted the steady decline and collapse, so I have no dog in this hunt. Regardless, I have noted your efforts and I would suggest that the conservative readership that frequents this site (and live in the voting area of Salisbury) take time to review your planks and plans for pulling Salisbury back from the liberal edge it has been led to.

Kind Regards,

Paladin

I was at the city dog park yesterday and a WMDT reporter approached asking what I thought of the plans for a new dog park? WHAT? Deos anyone know about this?

Never forget- the folk festival is NOT just three years. The National people help out for three years, then the city is expected to keep it going...FOREVER. I have no idea what the procedure is for getting rid of the folk festival, assuming someone other than Jake become Mayor, but I'll guess it's not easy.

Yay!

Yes, Wayne, we have had enough of it, but now you see how the good ole boy system works. We can vote for you, and will, however we hope someone knows how to count correctly this time and dead people and illegals don't get counted over and over.

It’s hard to fathom that someone can actually be such an idiot. But yet he proves it time and time again. Funny how so many people complain yet keep voting for him! These things are unreal. You couldn’t make this up if you tried! Wow! Just wow!

If the comments here are reflective of the comments on his fb page, the 1% of those who don't bike but claim they want to will be trolling this post in 3, 2, 1.

There were 2 girls, one with a potty mouth who thinks everyone that is against this is an idiot. And one who claims she is for this because she wants to bike but just hasn't in the few decades she has been alive and this whole fiasco will change everything for her and she will start biking - down route 50. Funny thing is 50 has been done for how many years now and she has yet to bike...

Let's take the kids for a bike ride down route 50 or waverly drive said no parent ever.

Stupid is on full display this week.
Enjoy the show kiddies.

Fear the outsider!! That's your mantra Salisbury. That's the low info voter comments I see on Wayne King's fb page. Who is he to come here and tell us how to live says the uneducated liberal! Really? Are you truly that stupid?

Instead you have a boy mayor telling you how to live and that's ok?

Telling you, you can't have a chain link fence. Telling you he is turning your town into a "biking community" whether you agree or not. Selling public owned land for pennies on the dollar to his buddies in private deals (according to your councilman Muir Boda at a recent republican club meeting). Killing wildlife and then denying it. Taking money out of departments to use for other things than what they were intended for? (folked festival). Bankrupting businesses downtown with his chaotic construction. Segregating citizens by trying to tax some more than others, when in fact he admitted one does not use anymore services than another. Hiding higher crime stats?

Have you had any say in all this ridiculousness? Did you get to vote on how millions of your dollars are being wasted? Have you had any say whatsoever for what you are now on the hook for?

But fear the outsider?

Outsiders brought Dresser, Crown, Campbell here. Outsiders brought you success and prosperity.
What has Jake brought you?
Circles in the road, bike lanes and dead geese.
An artist complex that failed and is now section 8?
More crime.
More decay.
But he takes lots of selfies.

What exactly has this guy done other than paint rainbow crosswalks, help only 20 homeless out of hundreds and make bike lanes?

Has he brought new businesses here?
Has he factually curbed crime?
The 20 hour festival is a money pit and total failure, be happy you only have 1 more year of it but how many years is it going to take to pay off? Don't know? Why because he is hiding the figures? Wonder why.

Your uneducated comments are ... unbelievable. Some chick is on there whining because he used a stock photo. Thats her concern. Not his platform, doesn't even bother to go to the meet and greet to see what he is all about, she is whining about the stock family picture he used.

Then you have the progressive caucus trolling him with their ignorance and bliss. These are the people who are also running for political office. Acting like 8 year olds, on the competitions fb page, insulting their constituents while accusing him of doing the same. Ironic isn't it.

Toilet bowl politics. Welcome to Smallsbury. It will never change. Enjoy your useless bike lanes. The joke is on you, taxpayer. This is what your mayor points to, as his legacy. Bike lanes.

Yes, it is funded by community donations and SVN matched that donation to build it

You may be correct because in North Carolina, where it just came from, they have done their own version of the National Folk Festival.

Well I hope a traffic study was performed on waverly dr. With the study saying that traffic patterns were not going to be more dangerous now. I don't know about a bike but I think it is way to congested now and more dangerous then it was. Looks a mess as well. I am so glad that I don't live there. I hope that bikes come. But for the driver that is plenty now. Well time tell but I think it was a big ...huge wast of tax money. Specially with other important things needed. Also haven't seen a herd of bikes trying to get pased all the rd crews like the cars are.

Appears as if Salisbury is turning itself into Vadstena's sister city by punishing those who dare enter Vadstena, I mean Salisbury in a vehicle powered by a combustion engine fed by fossil fuel. Pedestrians and cyclists are now king in Salisbury. I know the advertised purpose of the new road configurations is to slow down motor vehicles so if there is a collision between vehicle and pedestrian the odds are improved that there will be no fatalities or serious injury, but what the new configuration doesn't address are the residents of the area crossing the roads at any point on the road and not in crosswalks (there are no marked crosswalks on Waverly Drive) and many people on bikes who ride against traffic or down the middle of the road. I'd be curious to know if Waverly Drive has a documented history of high incidents of collisions between motor vehicles and pedestrians. If not, why did the City direct the funds to a street with low incidents of this type of collision instead of focusing on one with such a history?

I moved to Fruitland MD in 2008. It appeared to be what I was looking for in retirement. Quiet lovely area. I was lied to by the realtor on how much I would pay in taxes, I wasn't informed about the water treatment plant, I didn't realize I would be paying City, County and State taxes (which is my bad). The builder lied about HOA dues. The builder lied about the landscaping maintenance, the builder lied about HOA rules - some owners (friends of the builder) got special treatment and didn't pay a dime in HOS fees. I felt bad sling my house to a local knowing the injustices in the community. I moved to a better Date (Florida) - the amount of savings is amazing and we have a huge bike system, great restaurants and shopping. Doesn't get much better. Did I tell you we have Republican Governor. PS Better doctors and health facilities.

There will be no changing Salisbury. These liberals tried to put lipstick on the pig but the root problems and divides here will not be solved politically as long as people look to leadership and don't themselves live lives of true change and prosperity. We have let local realtors and speculating developers build cracker communities pandering to retirees from elsewhere that are sorry they came and are stuck and do not want to support our schools and local infrastructure and have local good ole folks that still think they can work a subprime living wage job marry have a kids and buy a house like the American Mayberry dream is still alive. It's all far more complicated than flag waving name calling and running for office with promises and transparency. This too shall pass. Those of us with property savings and investments don't look for anyone foolish enough or the time on their hands to enter into the Mayoral Shit Show.

Comment Worthy of a Post

Memo to the Wicomico County Republican Central Committee and their leader Mark McIver:

Why the Hell aren't you doing your job and getting Republican Candidates and supporting them for the Salisbury City races???

Don't tell me that it is because it is a nonpartisan race?? That is bull$hit because Jake Day, Jim Ireton, Angela Blake and April Jackson are all Democrats and they are very partisan. Jack Heath and Muir Boda might as well be Democrats.

Don't tell me that you don't live in Salisbury so you don't have a say. Well let me tell you this much, the citizens of Salisbury voted for Central Committee members just like they did county council members and the county executive so you do have a say.

The citizens of Salisbury voted in the Republican Primary and elected you to represent them and they deserve better.

Mark McIver and Central Committee Members you are failing the citizens of Salisbury and Wicomico County.

The shooting that happened in Salisbury on Saturday night, where the Hell is the Press Release from the City??

Something tells me that Jake Day sent a memo to the Police and Fire Chief's that no press releases or discussion on their social media pages are to happen when shootings, stabbings and murders occur in the city limits. I just checked Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and there is no mention of this incident what so ever.

Hmmmm.... Must be an election coming up.

I just spent a few minutes on Wayne King's page and I think it's important to know that many of the trolls on there attacking Wayne and supporting Fake Jake don't even live in the city limits of Salisbury.

One of the biggest harassers is none other than the little old man, criminal thug Ron Pagano. Need we remind everyone that Little Ronnie ripped off a client for over $8,000 and lost his law license. ROTFLMAO!! What nerve of this little turd to even show his face in public.

While perusing Wayne King's campaign page I noticed that a certain person kept "Liking" the attacks on Mr. King.

Someone needs to tell John Cannon that his County Council secretary needs to keep her liberal views to her self. Wicomico County doesn't need a Troll like Lynn Sande, a big Jake Day supporter, supporting the worst mayor in Salisbury history. I've heard that she has been leaking important and confidential county information to Jake Day.
