Mike Pantelides…Rested and Ready! (E-135)

It’s been almost a year and a half since he left the Mayor’s Office, but Mike Pantelides is back with The Maryland Crabs and he has a lot to say about the last election, his term as mayor, and the current city administration. Is he going to run for office again in the city or does he have designs on higher office? John and Tim tactlessly badger him about his future plans.

100 Days With Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley (E-83)

Mayor Gavin Buckley was elected in November 2017 and took office on December 4th. Today marks his 101st day in office and yesterday we sat down with the Mayor for an hour-long conversation to talk about the first one hundred days–how he thinks he is doing…how is is doing..and what is on the horizon.

Citizens wanted change. That was obvious at the polls. They got it with Gavin Buckley. If nothing else, the man is full of ideas, from a “Senior Prom” on the roof of a garage, to a three day music festival, to developing City Dock into a boutique hotel. We talk about capital projects and the looming fiscal issues that he will face.

And…he’s still not giving up on the convention center!

Take a listen and let us know what you think!

Annapolis Mayor-Elect Gavin Buckley’s First Interview (E-65)

Just about 16 hours after the polls closed, Annapolis Mayor-Elect Gavin Buckley spoke with the Maryland Crabs about his campaign, his win, and his expectations for the next four years.

What does he think of City employees? How does he feel about historic preservation? What type of administration can we expect from the Aussie?  And did we really almost lose the campaign for him?

Coming up….former County Executive John R. Leopold, Baltimore County Executive and Gubernatorial Candidate Kevin Kamenetz,  Maryland State Delegate Nic Kipke (if he will ever return my email), Heather Mizeur, Delegate Herb McMillan, outgoing Mayor Michael Pantelides, and a few more surprises!

Sit back, relax and enjoy this extra long episode.

Primary Election Night at the Blackwall Hitch with Special Guests (E-57)

The Maryland Crabs took over the Wine Room at the Blackwall Hitch in the heart of Eastport during Primary Election Night to wait out the results along with wide-ranging cast of political players and observers to wait out the results. While noshing on the distractingly ridiculous creations by Chef Jonathan Seningen, our charming hostess and stage manager for the evening, Lea Hurt, ushered in a veritable who’s-who in the world of Annapolis politics…

  • Aldermanic candidate David Frankel
  • The Annapolis Podcast Host and County Council candidate, Scott MacMullan
  • MH Media President, Michael Hughes
  • John Booth
  • And probably a few others that we forgot—sorry!

And we would like to especially thank Dr. Dan Nataf from AACC who not only hung in with us for the nearly five hours of roundtable discussion and analysis, but offered keen and clinical insight in to the political process and strategies that brought us to this point tonight with game-changing upsets and surprises.
