Your votes could help make Berlin ‘coolest’
When Berlin Mayor Gee Williams attended a recent Maryland Mayors Conference in Annapolis, one of the last comments of the meeting came from Governor Martin O’Malley wishing Williams and Berlin well in its effort to win America’s Coolest Small Town of 2014 contest. Budget Travel Magazine sponsors the contest.
According to the mayor, he was getting positive comments from mayors from all over the state.
“I’m extremely grateful for the support we’re getting from across the state,” he said.
Williams said that people outside of Berlin are excited to help get the vote out.
The voting comes to an end midnight February 25. Voters should go to www.coolberlin.org. Voters can cast a vote once each day. However, only one Internet Protocol or IP address can be used. So if you and your colleagues are voting from the same-networked work computers with the same IP address, only one vote is registered. If you vote from home, or have your friends and relatives vote, this improves Berlin’s chances to win.
At this writing Berlin held at a narrow lead over Cazenovia, N.Y., located near Syracuse.
A great finish for Berlin benefits the entire lower shore, bringing attention and tourism our way. We happen to think Berlin is the coolest town in America. It’s nice to know that so many other Marylanders think so too. Yes, it would be nice to be in the top five. Victory is so close; we can almost see the finish line.
So we urge you to vote and then vote again and again to make that happen.
