Spy readers are kindly requested to fill our our Avalon/Spy survey of the challenges and opportunities before the end of Thursday. Please go here.
The Avalon Foundation and the Talbot Spy have announced that the two organizations will collaborate on a community Town Hall meeting of candidates running for the mayor of Easton on April 16th at 6 pm at the Avalon main theatre to discuss issues facing our community.
Spy Columnist Craig Fuller has agreed to host the evening’s program. Mr. Fuller has been a resident of Talbot County for the last seven years. Prior to his arrival, he served four years in the White House as assistant to President Reagan for Cabinet Affairs, followed by four years as chief of staff to Vice President George H.W. Bush. He later was the CEO of public affairs firms and associations in Washington, D.C., before his retirement.
Over the last week,the Avalon and the Spy has been soliciting their different constituencies’ questions for the candidates to prepare for the gathering. Those subjects will be forwarded to the participants a week before the event. We welcome your participation in the survey which can be taken here.
The program is anticipated to last 120 minutes. It will be live streamed on Mid-Shore Community Television and the Spy’s Facebook channel. Attendance at the Avalon will be on a first-come basis, and there will be no charge for admission. Donations, however, are welcomed to support the cost of this event and future community programming in the future.

If we prioritize our environment over an invasive additional sports complex, we should instead allow full drainage in a critical area at Poplar Hill and preserve an open walking area with an inviting pathway as well.
