COWARD! PSC Spokesperson Refuse To Speak

BREAKING NEWS: Cab Rate Rollback Denied!

SPOKESperson, refuses to speak to media

So much for transparency in government. When called on live radio today, Maryland Public Service Commission spokesperson LaWanda Edwards hung up the phone after a reporter asked her a question. In a move that was both rude and shocking, the person whose job it is to talk to the media, decided, without explanation, that she would not.

Reporter, activist and talk show host Larry Wallace, aka Larry "The Celebrity" cab driver had just finished identifying himself and advised Edwards she was on the radio. Edwards then asked him for the purpose of his call. After stating he wanted to ask a few questions about the controversial taxi meter rate decrease (see Taxi drivers protest), without a word, Edwards was gone.

This issue is of great concern. At a time of growing distrust and suspicion of government, spokespeople refusing to talk to the media raises serious red flags. What do they get paid to do? If they are unable to do their jobs, why are they being paid a good salary with money from the taxpayers? Behavior like this is not acceptable, and should not be tolerated, from ANY civil servant, taxpayer paid, government employee.

As the executive producer for the radio show, Taxi Talk on WOLB 1010 AM, I am demanding an explanation and a response from the officials of the Public Service Commission. Civil servants are supposed to serve, but we now live in an era, where apparently, the only one served are themselves.

Shame on LaWanda Edwards for her cold, callous, uncaring and rude treatment, on live radio, of a member of the media.

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.
