Mayor Michael O'Connor has finished interviewing all of the applicants for the committee, and an announcement on its makeup and meeting schedule will be announced soon, city spokesman Allen Etzler wrote in an email Wednesday.

I believe districts is a good idea because then the citizens of a district know exactly to to contact when they have an issue. It will also require those who want to represent a district to get out and meet the citizens of that district.


Big no on disricts. And big no for people with conflicts of interest serving.


When are they going to resume collecting the leaves?

Alder people please try representing the tax payers instead of playing meeting room. tag!


I don't know what they have to say

It makes no difference anyway

Whatever it is, I'm against it

No matter what it is or who commenced it

I'm against it

Your proposition may be good

But let's have one thing understood:

Whatever it is, I'm against it

And even when you've changed it or condensed it

I'm against it



Districts in the city is a bad idea. Members shouldn't even be elected based on party affiliation.


Still waiting on Katie Nash to resign.


Where do you live?


Agree. Katie Nash should resign.


Katie Nash please resign now and save the Frederick community the public embarrassment. The election is over and more ethical complaints are coming. Do the right thing - resign.
