Salisbury Decides Future of City in Today's Vote
It’s Election Day in Salisbury.
Topping the list is that of the race for Mayor where incumbent Jim Ireton is facing off against Delmarva blogger Joe Albero.
In the money race Ireton comes out ahead with a commanding lead of over $10-thousand to $71-hundred for Albero.
At one time, Albero had been supportive of Ireton.
Meanwhile, in District 2 two term incumbent Council Vice President Debbie Campbell is being challenged by urban planner Jake Day…who overwhelmed her in the primary with over 800 votes around 300.
Day has complimented Ireton on some of his initiatives they are both holding their election parties at the same restaurant the River’s Edge at the Holiday Inn.
Campbell has been part of a working majority on the council that has included Council President Terry Cohen and council member Time Spies which has been at odd with Ireton.
Finally, there is District 1 where incumbent Shanie Shields faces two challengers Cynthia Polk and April Jackson who both got 53 votes in the primary.
All of these terms will only be for only two years when the city ends its staggered election cycles.
At that time they will all be running for a four year term.
