SALISBURY, Md.- Incumbent Mayor Jim Ireton was given four more years in office Tuesday after Salisbury voters chose him over opponent Joe Albero by more than a 2-1 margin. Ireton garnered 1,692 votes to Albero's 784.  

After the results were released on Tuesday night, WBOC caught up with both candidates. Ireton was more than happy with the final tally.

"Salisbury spoke tonight, and they want progress over pontification and backbone over blogger," he said.

As for local blogger Albero, he felt by running for office he has put Ireton on the right track to what the city needs.

"Recognizing jobs and industry needs to come to Salisbury in order for us to grow, without it truly impacting the taxpayers," Albero said.

In the city council race, incumbent Shanie Shields was re-elected in District 1, while newcomer Jacob Day defeated incumbent Deborah Campbell in District 2 in Salisbury.
