Dear Santa,

I am writing this letter to you because some of us are not sure that the mayor and aldermen are listening to us in Frederick. So, here is a wish list for you for this Christmas/holiday season. I want to get it in early.

1. Please open the bridge at the Monocacy by Thanksgiving as we cannot get a date from the administration and they will not respond to The Frederick News-Post’s inquiries.

2. Please fund a new pay scale for the city police department in the next budget cycle for recruitment and retention. It is needed!

3. Please, please assign a downtown unit specifically to Carroll Creek, Market Street and the parks. Not just parts of the areas, but all areas.

4. Please add blue safety light phones in some of those areas as the community college has done.

5. Please get smokers to not throw their cigarette butts on the ground. It is out of control.

6. Please sprinkle some economic magic dust on the Golden Mile and the old Frederick Towne Mall property.

7. Is a grocery store or major convenience store still possible for downtown, or are you tired of that request?

8. Please make us a pet-friendly city with responsible pet owners like other cities. Pet owners spend huge amounts of money.

9. Please do what you can for the Frederick Keys as it was such a fight and controversy to get them — we would hate to lose them.

10. Please put a power-washing program back in place through the FCAA and a weed removal program to freshen up and spruce up Carroll Creek and downtown.

11. Please help the mayor and Board of Aldermen with a new public information officer, as no one is sure what exactly happened to the current one,

12. Please make sure Mike Spurrier, former director of the Frederick Community Action Agency, has a wonderful Christmas. He deserves it, as he works late hours if allowed.

13. Please bring back Christmas to the city with the horse-drawn carriage rides during the holiday season, as people don’t want to drive to Mount Airy for these rides. The Lambert family is ready and needs your help.

14. Last, please look over those that can’t help themselves and those that need a hand up as we all need another chance when life falls apart for us.

Frederick is the best place to live and is rated to be by various publications, so everyone wants to keep it that way.

Thank you, Santa. Do what you can, and please scoop up the poop from the reindeer.

Blaine Young is a disgrace to Frederick City and Frederick County. He has done horrible things to really good people and they all are still here and vote. He is as dirty as they get! More of his horrible past secrets will come out if he runs. Stay tuned!

Dear Blaine,

I am sorry to inform you that your past behaviors and actions have placed you on Santa's Naughty list for life.

And maybe a new Tech Park with no tech. Can you imagine Blaine as mayor, it would be like the Christmas movie It's a Wonderful Life. Instead of Potterville we could be living in Blaineville.

"15. A new prostitution establishment in downtown Frederick, so I don't have to drive all the way to Anne Arundel County where the cops pretend to be hookers, and ruin everything."

Speak for yourself...at the polls and at the appropriate time, please and thank you.

And Santa, please deliver Blaine Young to Frederick as its next mayor.

NO NO NO

What did Frederick, Illinois ever do to deserve that?

public-redux

Maybe it's time for someone to break the news that Santa isn't real.

gabrielshorn2013

But...but...isn't that the story from "Miracle on 34th Street"?

public-redux

You know, I’ve never seen that movie.

Alice Jones

Buh liane must be thinking of another run. That ship sailed. Go stain another state.

Blaine missed a big wish..defeating of his father Ron and his Step, Step Mother Karen in 2021.

He is one of God’s children. Please keep your meanness to yourself.

Are you sure, Kelly? Did you ask God? We all know that it is not God's will that Blaine should be Mayor of Frederick.

sofanna

God's children are expected to act like it.

Blaine and Jennifer - ghosts of city politics past: How about your opinions on the downtown hotel/conference center?

neilyoungfan25

You sure have been popping up a lot lately, Blaine! Does this mean anything?? Do tell us, Santa??

KellyAlzan

Come one now, you’re better than that

gabrielshorn2013

A laudable wish list Blaine. Let's hope Santa answers and some of them come true.

Frayou

Sounds like someone is prepping as candidate for mayor. Look out Frederick City residents.

KellyAlzan

Notice this letter sounds like a Democrat? LOL

richardlyons

He was one before flipping.

KellyAlzan

I know. And Frederick city is a dem city. But as long as O’Connor keeps upsetting the people, ba’lane has the job in the bag, even as a repub.

richardlyons

We'll see but I cannot see that scenario playing out.

KellyAlzan

Don’t worry ba’lane. O’Connor is your best advocate, just as you were jan’s Best advocate.

Let me fix this letter for you, Mr. Young:

Dear Santa,

Please keep me from ever running for a political office anywhere in the state of Maryland.

Love the list, but would add do some paving in town to fix road conditions and hire a traffic engineer who understands flow and congestion.

Thewheelone

Vying for a campaign chair position, Bunny?[lol][beam]

BunnyLou

Haters in here are going to hate. Wait I thought you bunch were the tolerant ones.

richardlyons

Always the joker Bunny!
