Salisbury City Council Member Shanie Shields

The Salisbury City Council will now be looking for a replacement for council member Terry Cohen who announced this week that she was stepping down as of this Friday due to personal reasons.

She is one of the longest serving members.

The council will now have until September 5th to replace Cohen.

Council President Jake Day told the Salisbury Daily Times that the council will look at how best to deal with the application process at its meeting next Monday on August 11th.

Council member Shanie Shields said that the council would wait to act on Cohen’s replacement until Day returns to the city from his two-week obligation to the Army.

Delmarva Public Radio’s Don Rush talked with Shields about Cohen, her time on the council and the significance of her departure.
