SALISBURY, Md.- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Friday endorsed Salisbury Mayor Jake Day for re-election. 

Hogan said in a statement Friday morning, “I have been so impressed with the tremendous progress made in Salisbury under Mayor Day’s leadership. I ran for office to change Maryland and Mayor Day ran for office to change Salisbury for the better – and I believe we both have. I take our budget very seriously, and because I believe in the responsible and consistent leadership of Mayor Day, the state has been proud to make big investments in Salisbury’s Main Street, Downtown, National Folk Festival, Wastewater Treatment Plant, and more. In light of this momentum, I am proud to endorse Jake Day for re-election as Mayor of Salisbury.”

Day responded to the news saying, “The job of getting things done for our citizens requires that all levels of government collaborate for the greater good. At every turn, Governor Hogan has been there for Salisbury. I am deeply grateful for the Governor’s support of our citizens and our city, and to have his endorsement in this election.”

Day, a Democrat was first elected to the Salisbury City Council in 2013 and was unanimously elected as its president. He was first elected mayor of Salisbury in 2015.

Day's challenger is Republican Wayne King. Voting in the non-partisan municipal election is on Nov. 5.
