A Conversation with St. Michaels Commissioners President William Boos


As a result of feedback from Spy readers over the last few months, we begin today a series of interviews over the next year with Talbot County and town council presidents. By providing a platform to highlight particular issues and opportunities through these conversations, it is hoped this new format will encourage more civic engagement.

We start this new series with a discussion with William Boos, president of the Town of St Michaels Commissioners. While the Spy and Bill talked of many subjects related to St Michaels during our first interview, it was the Spy’s editorial choice to highlight Bill’s comments about the town’s plans, and some serious misunderstandings, on its intention to build a new town hall in the foreseeable future at Fremont and Canton Streets.

This video is approximately six minutes in length. For more information about the Town of St. Michaels please go here.


Letters to Editor

  1. After 19 years I am leaving St. Michaels. For more than a dozen years, I attended every commissioner meeting and tried to be an informed and participating resident. I worked hard for projects of interest to me but no longer feel in sync. The commissioners are losing a great opportunity by not putting the new town office at the Boundary Lane site. We are an historic town and are supposed to value the historic architecture and importance of streetscape. Though outside the historic district, that corner had a particularly fine residence that was a gateway property used commercially and would have also provided an excellent welcome center. The town tore it down. I renovated historic houses in Old Town Alexandria, VA, for a living and understand the challenges of deterioration, mold, and inconvenience, but loss of our evolving history and its architecture diminishes the town. Ann Hymes St. Michaels
