Salisbury Residents Head to Polls to Vote for Mayor & Council

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md. - Incumbent Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton walked the streets of Salisbury Monday to persuade all the undecided voters for the upcoming election. Ireton's opponent Joe Albero was out doing the same.

Ireton says economic development is a constant vision in moving the city forward. "What developers and new businesses want is they want to be able to lower their costs a little bit because their profit margin is much lower than 10 years ago during the huge economic boom. I think we're poised to take care of that. We are the place that has the water and sewer which is what businesses and new housing developments want--all those things we just have to capitalize on it."

Albero says he's all for economic development as well.  He says fulfilling mayoral duties "full-time" and his background in business will make a difference. "You have to have a business background to understand how to invite people here. For 16 years we've had mayors that waited for businesses to fall in their lap. I'm saying the opposite we need to go out aggressively and get the businesses brought here."

Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 2.

District One polling location is Fire Station 16 on Cypress Street.

District Two polling locations are Harvest Baptist Church on South Boulevard and Wicomico Presbyterian Church on Broad Street.
