Buckley: There will be no ferris wheel on City Dock

Local businessman and candidate for Mayor, Gavin Buckley has been feeling some heat over a statement made on The Maryland Crabs Podcast in March where he was discussing the need to get more people to enjoy downtown. During the conversation, Buckley suggested a ferris wheel. Listen to the episode here.

There was confusion if he was serious or not and with good reason–if nothing else, Buckley is a man of ideas; which may not be a bad thing for Annapolis.

Mayor Pantelides felt he was serious and sent a mailer out and created a website along with a video to rebuff the idea.

Buckley has put the confusion to rest with a Facebook post to his campaign’s page last night. There will be no ferris wheel at City Dock.
