"I believe that the loss of Second Chance would be a significant blow to a commercial area and a community that appreciates this popular establishment," Ulman said.
County Council member Calvin Ball, who represents Oakland Mills, also wrote a letter of support for Second Chance.
"We consider Second Chance Saloon the Cheers of Columbia. You're always greeted with a warm welcome and smile when connecting with neighbors, family and friends," Ball wrote. "I patronize the shops in Oakland Mills regularly and I'm confident that any loss would be a negative backlash on our community."
Bill Gray, chair of the Oakland Mills Village Board, also wrote a letter to the owners, urging them to keep Second Chance.
"If the Second Chance's lease is not renewed we know that the entire center will suffer. Surely that is not the intent of Cedar," Gray wrote. "We sincerely hope that Cedar Shopping Center reconsiders and in fact renews the lease of the Second Chance."
In a second letter to resident of Oakland Mills, Gray urged residents to write to Cedar on Second Chance's behalf.
