Anti-Humor Activists Handed Major Set-Back as Levity Returns to Wildwood City Hall; We have the audio.

June 1, 2019

Trash delivery, creek erosion, loss of a city administrator, and the censure of a council member are all serious issues that the Wildwood City Council has dealt with recently.  At times it can seem grim.  But nothing is as grim as not having a sense of humor or seeking to scandalize those who do.


As WWM readers may recall, before the April municipal elections there was an oppressive coalition of knee-jerk, contrarian council members whose anti-mayor rhetoric had reached such humorless levels that even levity became controversial.  


Kelley Woerther, Wife of Councilman Tim Woerther and ethics complaint enthusiast, was the most vocal about the transgressive nature of unscripted laughter when she suggested that Councilman Taylor had risked censure with unauthorized jocularity


But as Mark Twain one observed "against the assault of laughter nothing can stand", and April saw a sound electoral defeat of candidates who were backed by the obstructionist Woerther-Kennedy-Shea coalition. As a result, residents have been noticing a difference.  Several residents have observed that not only are the meeting less rancorous, "but people can actually laugh again."


As evidence, Wildwood Matters offers the following clip of a witty exchange that just months prior would have brought talk of scandal and repercussion.
