Salisbury City Elections District 1 - April Jackson

We endorse April Jackson for Salisbury City Council District 1.

Certainly we recognize Shanie Shields has served admirably over the years representing District 1. However, we believe now is the time for change and the right person is April Jackson.

Sarah Halcott has been very involved in Downtown Salisbury, specifically as one of the founding partners of 1st Saturday. She was the driving force behind the recent Urban Chicken Legislation. We believe she needs a couple of years serving on a board or committee to gain some additional experience. Sarah would also be a little out of her element as this is a Minority-Majority District and we recommend she get involved in organizations such as the NAACP.

April is very active in the lives our youth on a daily basis and she truly understands the needs of her District. She is not a newcomer to Salisbury politics as she ran for City Council in 2013. We believe she will bring a fresh perspective to the council table and is the right choice to represent District 1.
