At last nights County Council Meeting a large volume of citizens were making comments that seemed to be somewhat repetitive but more importantly very lengthy. Mr. Cannon at one point stated that he's like it if people could keep their comments down to two minutes each.
He went on to say, (I'm paraphrasing) WE'D LIKE TO GET OUT OF HERE TONIGHT AT A SAFE HOUR.
I commend Mr. Cannon for making such a statement as we have experienced SIX major crimes in Salisbury and Wicomico County in the past 24 hours prior to this meeting.
Many have contacted me recently stating they saw Mayor Jim Ireton on the news stating crime was down. Ireton was telling people not to believe what others are saying. I believe he said something of the sort, just look around.
Well Jim, maybe YOU should open your eyes and look around. YOU have silenced the crime in and around Salisbury while all law enforcement have not been publishing crime on a daily basis.
Council President John Cannon sent out a clear message last night, Salisbury and Wicomico County are not safe. That speaks volumes coming from the County Council.
