SALISBURY, Md.- Newly-elected council members were sworn in Monday night in Salisbury. Jake Day was appointed president and Laura Mitchell appointed vice president.  

Now with Day officially joining the council, the voting dynamic is expected to change in Mayor Jim Ireton's favor.  This could mean that some of his proposals may finally get an opportunity to be implemented.

Some people who spoke with WBOC said change is very much needed in the community and improving the economy should be the prime focus.

Dawn Moyer of Salisbury said, "Hopefully the small town politics will be on the back burner and we'll get something done."  

Reggie Cornish, also of Salisbury, said, "There needs to be some changes, as there are a lot of people out here looking for jobs, but can't find work."

The council is excited to get to work and drive businesses to Salisbury.
