Jim Ireton The End Of Ringling Brothers Mayoral Tour


Wow Jim Ireton, what can I say. I was not a supporter of Jim in the beginning of his political run and while I have had times we have been allies, for the most part Jim has been a clown.

Jim was a supporter of the Campbell/Cohen regime back in 2008 and 2009 and was hand picked to be the Mayor as they thought they could control him. Jim starts having his own thoughts and wham becomes a target of the same group that wanted him in the first place. I don't know how many times I have been to press conferences with Ireton and had him go off on Cohen and Campbell and I would just stand in the back putting my hands up saying to myself "that's what I have been saying all along ,you are just catching on???"

There have been times I admired Jim for sticking to his guns against those two, but for the most part Jim could not control himself and let his emotions make him look like a buffoon. He basically threatens the County residents to stop fire service, and even though people who knew he would never do it realized it was a ploy, it really scared people just past the City limits.

Jim continues to target the landlords in Salisbury as enemy number 1 trying to pass a last minute sweeping rent control legislation a month before being out of office.The same people who if they didn't invest in this City it would be boarded up like Detroit.

I have had times Jim would speak to me, and then times he would pretend I didn't exist. He would single me out in press conferences occasionally and in general acted like a snotty child who would thrash around in the sandbox if he wasn't getting paid enough attention or wasn't getting his way. Salisbury has been a laughing stock around Maryland thanks to Jim's performances over the years and lets be honest if he had run against anyone other than his candidate last time he wouldn't have been Mayor a second term.

We can only hope voters do not give him a chance to bring his act to District 4, which will only cause Jake Day grief and everyone knows it. Jim will think he is still Mayor and think Jake should follow his lead which isn't gonna happen. The best thing would be him being gone from the scene, but even if he manages to win, he will be relegated to an annoying gnat that can be shooshed way when needed.

For the most part your right JT. He was already unstable but the two buttocks campbell and Cohen didn't help matters playing games behind the scenes. But ALLGAYS are unstable and live for drama.

11:14 AM Just because a lesser evil is chosen over a MUCH greater evil doesn't mean that lesser evil is anybody's "boy"

Well we ALL going to see soldier boy in action soon enough. Dealing with this council and back stabbing chamber of commerce won't be fun. Plus he won't have to worry about Campbell and Cohen pulling the rug out from under him.
