Debate Of The Year: Kirby Delauter and Kai Hagen

You Decide 2020


Mark your calendars and set your watches for Monday, March 9 from 6-9:00 p.m. at the Red Horse Steak House, 996 W Patrick Street, Frederick, MD 21703.

Former Commissioner Kirby Delauter faces current Councilman Kai Hagen to debate the pros and cons of Commissioner vs. Charter forms of government.

The Frederick County Conservative Club is hosting this event. Details can be found on their event page by clicking here. The FCCC is helping with a movement to repeal Charter government by getting signatures for a petition to have a removal initiative placed on the ballot this November.

Earlier this year we wrote about what former Commissioners and current Councilman thought about this effort here.

In order to educate and engage the public the FCCC has arranged for a debate and discussion between not only former County Commissioners, but also former Carroll County Commissioner Richard Rothschild who was against and helped defeat charter government in Carroll County. Also on the dais will be Montgomery County advocate Robin Ficker, Esquire.

Dinner, drinks and raffles will be offered during the evening.

Charter Repeal petitions will be available for those Frederick County citizens wishing to see this issue put up for the public’s reconsideration in November.

If able, The Tentacle will live stream the event on their Facebook page. Be patient, this will be our first attempt at a live-stream.

Cindy A. Rose began writing for the Tentacle in 2011 trying to raise awareness over things happening within Frederick County Public Schools. She began keeping a close watch on FCPS when she learned there were not enough air conditioned buses for special needs children during the hot Maryland summers. The Tentacle offered her a place to share her concerns with her community when local newspapers didn’t always. Cindy had the opportunity to buy the Tentacle from creator/owner John W. Ashbury in 2019, so she did. She believed then, as she believes now, our communities, friends and neighbors have important things to say that needs to be shared with those living around them. Large corporate news companies don’t always share in those passions and concerns. The Tentacle is a local news, commentary and community website run by citizens, for citizens. Its success depends on your participation.
