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.  


There was even a  suggestion that a councilman was risking 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.
