Sunday in an op-ed in the Frederick News-Post
, former delegate and county commissioner Charles Jenkins (no relation to Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins) waxed poetic at great length about how his former colleague Jan Gardner was a shoo-in to be the first Frederick County Executive next year.
I guess they can cancel the election, for a former delegate hath spoken...
One of the ironies, though, of Jenkins trying to orchestrate Gardner's coronation, however, is this nugget from 2007
when Gardner accused Jenkins of violating his oath of office because she disagreed with an immigration proposal he brought before the County Commission.
While it is humorous that Charles Jenkins thinks that he is politically relevant, it's important to remember that this is a guy who went to Annapolis and serve as a willing accomplice to Martin O'Malley's agenda. The 2010 primary election showed how far Charles Jenkins is to the left of mainstream Frederick County voters.
If I were Commissioner Jan Gardner, I'd be pretty concerned about my political viability if a has-been like Charles Jenkins is leading my parade...
