WICOMICO COUNTY EXECUTIVE BOB CULVER’S RESPONSE TO SALISBURY MAYOR JAKE DAY’S RECENT COMMENT TO THE DAILY TIMES ON JULY 3, 2017
In Monday’s Daily Times, Mayor Jake Day made a shocking statement to the press about the new arrangement between the City and my office concerning Station 1’s territory changes. He said we are still using the same boundaries from before, which have been “used for years” – contrary to a May article where he affirms his agreement to “willingly give up part of Station 1’s territory.” Additionally, in the attached April 25 th email to our office from the City, he outlines our discussion on this issue, clearly confirming our agreement. Like you, I am confused as to why he would make such a misleading comment to the press now after everything was settled.
I am deeply disappointed in the Mayor’s apparent attempt to renege on a deal I considered to be a closed matter. Therefore, in light of this, Wicomico County has no choice but to look closer at future agreements with the City to avoid this type of miscommunication from occurring again as it only confuses our residents whom have concerns about such matters.
