Cecil Times: 36th Senate: Democratic Dances with Pipkin

From Cecil Times —-

 Comparing the two Democrats who have filed to run against incumbent Republican Sen. E.J. Pipkin in the 36th District Senate race is like comparing the 1960′s Bristol Stomp to a courtly minuet, or the classic English “contra dancing” performed professionally by one of the candidates.

  Former Elkton Mayor Robert Alt gets right to the point: “I would improve communications between the local municipalities and the county with our state delegation. It’s hard to get the state to hear our voices in Annapolis with our state delegation the way it is now.” (How does that old song go: “the kids in Bristol are sharp as a pistol when they do the Bristol Stomp…”)

   Steven Mumford, of Chestertown, making his first bid for elected office, said in an interview with The Cecil Times: ”I don’t want to say anything bad about Senator Pipkin.”  (Cue the violins for a courtly rendition of Eighteenth Century ballroom dancing in a country castle…)

  1. What a funny story! I don’t dance a lot, but if I did, I’d ask for Rob Alt as my dance partner. How could any serious voter support, or “dance” with this guy from Chestertown?
    We need a serious person to run against Pipkin. Alt is that person

  2. Without question Rob Alt is the right person! Like they say in Bristol Stomp, “They dance the greatest if they do it right.. it’s the latest and the greatest sight.”

  3. Can ALT stand the heat? There will be questions about his involvement with developer Wolf, business dealings and deals between a Mayor and developer. . . . .
