SALISBURY, MD – At last Friday’s Third Friday event in downtown Salisbury, a “bookmark” was being passed out (see photo at left). Taking yet another hint from his idol, Barack Obama, is Salisbury mayor Jim Ireton running for re-election?
There is no authority line on the “bookmark” and we were unable to identify the person handing out the material on Third Friday. Therefore, it’s not possible to say conclusively that this is an opening salvo from a re-election campaign. However, given the recent buzz about a possible mayoral run by SbyNEWS publisher Joe Albero, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Ireton hitting the campaign trail much earlier than is normal for a city election.
