KIDL WEB GUY CALLS IT
When you see the misleading negative attack ads and mailings in these last days before the Primary don't forget, there is always more to the story. . . . Mike has always held that certain Executive (Closed to the Public) Sessions are improperly held or unnecessary, and he refuses to attend these meetings. He has missed only 1 regular meeting. Mike's voting record is being attacked in a "Friends of QAC" ad . There are legitimate reasons for every "no" vote. For example Mike has always held that the Four Seasons process and maps were flawed and the courts are now agreeing as you'll read below in the release from Citizens Alliance.
Here are some of the votes attacked and Mike's reasons for his votes. If you have questions on any of his votes email firstname.lastname@example.org or call him. We'll hit some of the major votes attacked here:
NOTE FROM KIDL WEB GUY! Please read the reply from Cassell regarding the Ellendale vote immediately following Koval's. What Cassell says... and then what he does, like night and day. Is this the kind of man we want in Centreville for four more years? I say no thank you Mr. Cassell, I say let the voters dismiss you with gratitude...

SPECIAL TO THE KENT ISLAND DEFENSE LEAGUE
The Court of Special Appeals has denied KHovnanian’s motion to vacate Judge Sause’s injunction against the Four Seasons Project.
In a one-page Order entered on September 5, 2006, the Court summarily rebuffed a 101-page filing by KHov’s lawyers seeking to overturn Judge Sause’s injunction.
The Judge had stopped all work on the project, pending resolution of appeals from his judgment that accurate Critical Area rezoning maps for the project had never been produced and that therefore no “Growth Allocation” for the project had ever been completed.
Because of the September 5 order, the appeals will now go forward with the Judge’s injunction remaining in effect.
Due to the courageous efforts of citizen plaintiffs, backed by the full resources of the Queen Anne’s Conservation Association, the Four Seasons project may well be ultimately stopped by the courts.
More immediately, the next County Commissioners will now have a clear opportunity officially to reconsider this illegitimate project (approved in 2002 by lame-duck Commissioners after they had been voted out of office in large part because of their support for Four Seasons).
The three-person majority of the current Commissioners, Cassell-Cupani-Smith, have repeatedly pushed the project forward, against the determined but out-voted opposition of Commissioners Mike Koval and Gene Ransom.
The Primary Election on September 12 gives every Kent Island voter the chance to get a fresh reconsideration of Four Seasons -- by getting rid of its relentless Commissioner champions: Cassell, Cupani, Smith.
I urge KIDL, as the original opponents of this grotesque project, to communicate to your members what is at stake on September 12.
