CRABCAKE: Ward 1 Aldermanic Debate Presented by Inner West Street Business Association (September 2017)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

This one is a little bit longer. I had the opportunity to attend a Ward 1 Aldermanic Debate sponsored by the Inner West Street Business Association on August 31st. The audio was grabbed from my portable recorder, so …. not the greatest.  But here is what the three candidates for Alderman in Ward 1 have to say.

More Information:

Last month, we interviewed each candidate for Alderman and here are the links to their interviews. Larry Claussen never returned our phone calls or emails so an interview was not conducted.

Here is your link to all of the interviews!

CRABCAKES: Interviews (17) with Aldermanic Candidates for Annapolis

Below are audio interviews originally published by The Maryland Crabs Podcast (go on and subscribe) with the Aldermanic Candidates for the upcoming City of Annapolis primary election.

We reached out to all 18 candidates and all but one, Larry Claussen a Republican in Ward 1, responded. We fanned out across the City, usually meeting at a local business, and each candidate was presented with essentially the same questions in order to allow listeners to compare the candidates apples-to-apples. There was no pre-set time limit, so some are fairly brief and others are somewhat long. We have also included links to their campaign websites and social media pages where available.  You can read the questions below.

A note on recording and editing: These interviews were conducted all over the City. Some were in homes, many were in coffee shops. Many will have some background noise that we tried to mitigate as best as possible. The interviews are presented as they happened. Long pauses, coughs, passing loud cars, very loud background noise, and excessive “uhms” have been removed to keep it relatively listenable. A note on the release schedule for these podcasts. There is nothing nefarious–We started with Ward 1 and worked through Ward 8. Within each ward, the candidates are listed alphabetically by their last name.

If you missed the Mayoral Forum we hosted in June, you can catch it here.

And in the upcoming weeks, The Maryland Crabs will have hour-long interviews with all of the Mayoral candidates leading into the primary.

As usual, we will not endorse any candidate in this election; however we will be publishing an editorial about our best guesses for the results and our reasoning. Stay tuned.
