Grasping at straws

In hopefully his last hurrah in Salisbury City Politics, Mayor Ireton is essentially accusing evil landlords of buying an election. The shallow and often out of her element Daily Times Reporter, Liz Holland, perfectly aided Mayor Ireton in her article in today's paper.

The people that Mayor Ireton so haphazardly paints as buying influence and essentially corrupting city politics, specifically the ones that contributed to Roger Mazzullo's campaign, are some of the most invested people in our city. Not just invested business wise, but they are some of the most committed philanthropists in our area.

Robert and Virginia Malone, she is known as Ginny to many, are wonderful people. Is he a landlord? Yes. Is she a realtor? Yes. However, Ginny Malone has done some incredible work for local charities and people in need over the years. She does not flaunt her good works for all to see, she quietly does her work and anyone who has ever worked with her can tell you she and Robert are very generous individuals and very good people.

Michael and Stacy Weisner. Michael is a realtor, commercial property owner and landlord. He is a very committed and good Democrat. His wife Stacy has committed thousands of hours of volunteer work to our comminity over the years and has been big part of the recent successes at the Salisbury Zoo. Like Ginny, she has committed so much time and resources to many causes in our city and county.

Lynne Bratten, is a landlord. She was a Guidance Counselor for many years. She is currently the Chairperson of the Housing Board of Adjustments and Appeals and was appointed by Mayor Ireton to the board. She is involved in many worthwhile causes including recently designing and sewing all the costumes for the upcoming Addam's Family Ancestors play being put on by the Community Players. 

I guess the Mayor does not want these types people having any influence, with whatever $250 will get you, in the city they have invested in through owning property, providing housing for people and being an intregal part of effective charity work in our area. Instead, he continues to use his position as Mayor to score cheap political points by taking broad swipes at a generalized group of people. 

Sorry mayor. Play time is over and it is time for the adults to sit at the table and get to work. Professionalism, respect for others and the ability to work with all people is a must. You have proven over the years you are not capable of doing that. 

You had an opportunity to serve on the city council once and you could not handle it, you walked off the job. Why would the people of District 4 trust you with that again?

The bottom line is some of these same people invested in Jim Ireton's previous elections and they obviously no longer support Jim Ireton. Jim was a mean, arrogant, back stabbing elected official and it is time for a new face and I can assure you there are many people looking for New Blood and we hope and pray that it will be Roger Mazzulo.

Lots of hate on the mayor here. The guy won two elections for mayor. So either the people running their mouths can't vote, don't vote. Everyone loved Jumbo now nothat so much uh. You all love Day now but I'm sure you won't. Not until you ALL vote him in as mayor twice too.
