The Maryland Crabs: Incompetence, Annoyance, and Overreach (E-6)

mdcrabs_250x250In this episode , John and Tim crab about Annapolis bureaucracy and power plays.

It looks like HACA has mismanaged a huge sum of money. Again. Is it incompetence or malfeasance? Is someone going to actually call them out on it?

No one likes paying for parking, which is why Tim moves his car five times a day. How is SP+ doing as the new kid on the (parking-restricted) block?

Downtown Annapolis is beautiful, to be sure. But are the folks who are in charge of keeping it that way overstepping their authority? The Historic Preservation Commission goes head-to-head with downtown restauranteur and mayoral candidate, Gavin Buckley.

The Maryland Crabs: Crime in Annapolis, A Different Point of View (E3)

mdcrabs_250x250Last week, we rambled on about the increase in crime in Annapolis, Maryland. If you missed the episode, give it a listen and this one will make more sense.

In this episode of The Maryland Crabs, John and Tim sit down to talk to Robert Eades who is a community activist, a product of public housing in Annapolis, and has some solid ideas on how to get control of the crime problem in the City. He is a fixture at City Hall where they only give him 3 minutes to speak. We gave him an hour!

We hear about rival drug dealers from other cities making Annapolis their home base, the slow decimation of any social programs that enabled people to move up from public housing, to the best way the police can easily make the biggest difference.

In this episode, Eades names names and pulls no punches.

Our discussion of this will continue next week when we speak with a resident that is not in public housing, but lives on the fringe of it and attempts to raise a family while dodging bullets.
