  1. JT: If you haven’t seen it yet, Bob Culver has posted the entire 2020FY Proposed Budget for Wicomico COunty. I must admit, having followed Wicomico County politics, I am very impressed with the presentation. There’s a lot of information available in the Proposed Budget which I’d encourage people read.

    Below are the proposed salaries of those key individuals, department heads, etc from various departments. I will say, I am appalled at the salaries paid to the County Executive and Sheriff. I know many reading this will disagree with my opinion of the County Executive’s salary, but until that salary is adjusted (and prior to the next election) no person of merit will run for thankless job.

    Something interesting to note is Michele Ennis appears in the department staff pictures of both the Finance and Human Resources Department. I’ve been reading the comments about Bob Culver moving her into the position of Director of Finance. Maybe she’s doing both jobs.

    Director of Administration $136,063.00
    Deputy Sheriff/Chief Deputy $122,638.00
    Director Finance $120,000.00 page 57
    Airport Manager $116,733.00
    Director Corrections $114,444.00
    Council Internal Auditor $101,576.00
    Asst Director Administration $99,149.00
    Director Public Works $95,509.00
    Sheriff $95,000
    Director Human Resources $93,543.00 page 66
    Director Parks & Recreation $92,909.00
    Director Planning & Zoning $92,884.00
    Director Information Technology $91,800.00
    County Executive $85,000.00
    Director Emergency Services $87,019.00
    Elections Director $76,885.00
    Council Administrator $70,000.00
    Roads Superintendent $67,639.00
    Purchasing Agent $66,586.00
    General Services Supervisor $64,260.00
    Chief Alcohol License Inspector $57,222.00
    Maintenance Supervisor Solid Waste $54,459.00
    Council President $18,000.00

    1. Thanks for the post, Mr. Culver. Nothing wrong with your salary, but I am appalled at the salary of the council president. What a thankless job putting up with your shit.

    2. I can’t name one county employee that is worth $100,000 year, especially that little boi Weston who is still wet behind the ears. You know that low life Bob is too stupid to realize that he is getting paid much less than his department heads. What an idiot.

    3. I was told by an elected state official that the Civic Center is losing thousands of dollars every single day and it is being subsidized by the taxpayers. The Civic Center is a sinking ship and something needs to be done. As much as I despise Gary Mackes I know he ran a tight ship and they were self-sustaining. What a stupid move Bobbie!

  2. I can’t believe Bob Culver is paying Weston Young who has absolutely no experience, $100,000. WTF is wrong with Bob?? I thought he was a conservative Republican? And $120,000 for his girlfriend as the new Finance Director with no experience either. WTH is wrong with you people? Who approved that?

    2. If they assisted Culver with the budget posted on the website than it was a good approval. Culver, you did a great job. I noticed a reduction in spending in almost every department. I also applaud you. Easy to read, transparent and professional. Thank you for the original post. I would not have checked it out.

Good Job Bob, I know you cringe thinking you have to make these fake posts on JT’s blog to make you look good, but most people in this county aren’t that stupid. We know it’s you, Shitzburg, Kortnay and DUI Chrissie.

  11. 1.35 I f you noticed there was no fee shown for what they pay Wilber and staff. Now if you watched the 4/16/19 meeting you will see that Bob and council will have to both hire outside law firms to iron out the differences between them at the taxpayer dime again.But of greater latitude during the council meeting was Steve Miller in damage control mode with more taxpayer money to say the civic center now needs a intercom system and new sign to communicate with outside patrons and because we had a few older people beat on the doors after 2 hours with no explanation why the doors had not been opened we now need to add safety barriers restricting someone from driving a vehicle into the box office in front of the building. Just more typical liberal way of thinking we need to spend more of taxpayer money for mistakes myself and my deputies made.The man is like Obama. A good speaker with no substance and knowledge to oversee a multi million dollar department.

  13. It’s that time of year again! I wonder if Bob Culver plans on paying his property taxes this year before his property goes on the tax sale. Gale in Finance told me, I think it was two years ago, that Bob owed over $6,000 in property taxes that he couldn’t pay so he ordered the countywide tax sale withheld. That didn’t go over well with the municipalities. Gale is awesome, she sucks up to Bob and he is too stupid to see that she can’t stand him.

  19. B.N.Bob has approved to purchase a 4 man submarine for the landfill. This will be used to study the effects of seagull feces in the water of the surrounding ponds and waterways around the landfill. Navigation will consist of Baby Beak Chrissie Culver where he can steer the submarine since he cannot drive on the roadways. To finish off his staff will include Candy and Lambert. This will save thousands annually in pickup truck fuel costs and last but not least Whitelock to fly his drone while in the submarine and give B.B. directions so he does not run into anything.

  21. 11:08, read the charter (Director of Administration role), the code, and the newly voted charter amendments (your election ballot). Do not assume, ask questions.

    The best run governments: Legislators are legislation and Executive is operations. That makes progress. If the Executive feels he has a good team, why would Legislators worry or interfere with that? Answer why?

    Without competent reason, the answer would be an interference based on pettiness. Unreasonable pettiness upon any appointment would be a charter violation itself (supposed to be based on qualification and ability to do the job). If you do not have their resumes (only gossip), who are you to say anything?

    Basically, this nonsense is not all Culver, Council is guilty too (hopefully not causing this drama). Open your eyes so that we can move forward. They need to work together on real issues, not this BS.

    As far as employees, they always complain about the boss (no matter who) but won’t leave. Hum? Most employees are not close enough to the top to worry about anything more than their own Director or Supervisors. So, it maybe obvious where these posts are coming from.

    It is a shame because how well are you doing your job worrying about everyone else? You are not.

    Say what you want, but a fact is a fact (not this nonsense). Talk about the real facts and issues.
