Match The Court Record: An Eye On Annapolis Quiz

With all the hoopla about the Annapolis candidates, we thought it might be fun to have a little quiz. Here is a list of candidates (and the office they are seeking) and a list of court records. Just match the candidate to the court record.  Cosmopolitan has nothing on us! Answers are after the jump!

Name Office Court Infraction
1 Arnett Alderman-8 A Landlord dispute–settled
2 Bowling Alderman-3 B Nothing found
3 Cohen Mayor C Contractual suit for $1009 in 5/2008 dismissed by court
4 Conley Alderman-5 D Contractual suit for $3907 in 8/2009 dismissed by court
5 Cordle Mayor E Never paid judgment for $401.32 by Woodward & Lorthrop
6 Finlayson Alderman-4 F Home foreclosure
7 Fox Mayor G Speeding. 84 in a 55
8 Hoyle Alderman-3 H Failure to pay child support
9 Israel Alderman-1
10 Kirby Alderman-7
11 Monteith Alderman-7
12 Paone Alderman-2
13 Pfeiffer Alderman-7
14 Silverman Alderman-5
15 Stiverson Alderman-7
16 Toews Alderman-8

Methodology: We simply scanned the MD Court Records looking for the candidate as a defendant and selected one (if any) of the results to list. So, if a candidate has a long list, only one is represented here. We also suspect that it is a good thing this was not done prior to the primary.

But, what does this say about the people we seek to elect to lead and govern our city?  I wonder how this quiz would turn out if run on the current administration and alderman…probably not so good!

And the answers:

  • Arnett – B
  • Bowling – B
  • Cohen – B
  • Conley – F
  • Cordle – B
  • Finlayson – E
  • Fox – A
  • Hoyle – D
  • Israel – B
  • Kirby – H
  • Monteith – B
  • Paone – C
  • Pfeiffer – G
  • Silverman – B
  • Stiverson – B
  • Toews – B
