Just a few moments after Ireton announced his victory in downtown Salisbury, he spoke with WBOC about his future and future of the city council. Ireton said it was important to continue to focus on the development of downtown Salisbury, bringing more jobs to the city, and continuing to lower the crime rate. But Ireton also said he may be in another election in the near future.
"It's incredible to have won four elections in the last 16 years," Ireton said. "I have traveled all across Maryland telling everyone about the good things that happen in Salisbury. So at this point, we are going to be taking a look at the 1st District congressional race to find out whether there is an opportunity there."
Ireton said he would make a definitive decision on whether to enter that race in the near future.
