Salisbury Can Be Made Better By Following Jake Day Leadership


What a thankless job it is to run this website and to try to make the City  better like Jake Day, with the negative trolls that lurk on the Internet.

"Salisbury sucks" "Salisbury is a shithole" "Jake sucks""Stop kissing Mayors ass JT". These are just part of my regular comments in regards to anything that I say supportive of Jake or in regards to plans Jake is putting out there to improve our way of life. I mean why would anyone want to make the area a better place to live? I mean according to these people we should just throw our hands up and be like "the hell with it let it become Detroit"

Jake has a vision for a better Salisbury, it won't be instant but I can see where he is going with it. Fixing Downtown is the start. Making the streets look more attractive is a vital step to making it more attractive for visitors. This goes as well for the study report that came out yesterday in regards to Route 13 corridor, and his ideas to make it look better. He is spot on, there are sections of 13 that look like they are from a war torn Country. Nothing says welcome to Salisbury like run down streets and pot holes. According to the trolls however, again we should just say the hell with it.

I ask how many of you who dislike Jake have actually ever sat down and talked to the man? Trust me when I tell you this, I have more experience with politicians than you do, and Jake is one of the better I have met. We had a Mayor in Office before who was a child that threw tantrums and bullied people who didn't agree with him. We now have a Mayor that will meet you and talk to you about your concerns even if they are opposite of his. That is what makes a great leader.

How many times have I stated that I don't agree with everything he does, but you have to respect someone who will just agree to disagree with you and not take it as a personal affront. Crime is one of those things, I have repeatedly told Jake I disagree with the crime stats and that he needs give Barb Duncan her walking papers, but that doesn't take away from the vision I can see him trying to build Salisbury up to.

Jake is a smart guy and given time I really believe he can bring Salisbury into the future.

Jake is like everyone else who is greatly appreciated after he's gone.He may not even want to do a second term,but he has my vote if he does.

Pretty streets and lack of pot holes will not pay bills. The first thing that needs to happen is bringing jobs here that are not minimum wage. This town has lost so much of its income. I think wasting money on new signage, tress and flowers, is just silly. How about we bring back jobs, then you can worry about making it look pretty. How about a study on how to bring higher paying employment back to the area. Now that's a study worth paying for.

JT, Nobody is forcing you to run this website, blog or whatever you want to call it. It is yours and yours alone. You can write anything you want, you can allow or not allow any comments you want or even no comments at all. You can even take off and move to Florida if you wish.

Respect by many is a thing of the past! Liberalism is now Fascism. Vile George Soros, the devil himself, paying idiots to use violence to advance his message to destroy the United States. Liberal newspapers spewing fake news on a daily basis. Basement blogs such as Albero's being supported by businesses advertising to bully individuals! Leaders trying to do good given no respect!
In my opinion and those of many many more,there will be violence, like never seen before.

Everyone today feels like they are "entitled" to free everything....Nothing in life is free! That's why governments exist, to organize and install laws and regulate spending. Couple that with entitlement kids and no one has a chance to succeed without all kinds of criticism. Jake has a big job and just like your great blog....Neither of you will please everyone. Maybe 9:59 will move and report back on his new city???? Bye bye! Nice article JT by the way keep them coming, more appreciate them than not!!!!!

Sorry JT but Day is an ignoramus. I've been saying for years on this blog that parts of 13 remind me of the run down crime ridden area of Ritchie Hwy called Brooklyn right on the edge of Baltimore City. If he needed a study to tell him it should be improved then he without any doubts has an IQ somewhere in the imbecile range. If he does have a degree in urban planning he should be demanding his money back because he learned nothing.
It's all about jobs then everything else falls into place. When good paying jobs are plentiful then everything improves. It's not rocket science unless it seems you are Day. He's a fool wasting money on studies and tax payers should be outraged.

The complainers have probably never lived elsewhere. If they had they would not be complaining about our community.

Hey Jake don't you think the board of ed would have been a little better suited to help her but I guess that's why you are so busy

Why don't you get on here and tell the people how you helped her oh by the way did you ever mention it to the board of ed

Companies aren't going to want to open up in an area that looks bad, and its employees aren't going to want to move to an area that looks bad. Spruce it up it adds incentive.

Barb Duncan is an a$$ kisser to Jakes face and is a complete moron behind the scenes. She lets the hammer Kolb who is a complete douch run amuck while Meinschein can't even tuck in his shirt. Everyone there is miserable and there are not one but TWO employee surveys that state the low morale, distrust in the chief, and names Kolb by name as the reason. WHAT IS JAKE DOING ABOUT THAT?!?! If nothing then he's a problem. Guaranteed all their false promises will fall through. Watch Jake you're about to lose the support of your officers and the backing of the FOP. Keep it up and see how much backing you get next election.

Jake Day was endorsed by Barrie Parsons Tighlman, the worst mayor in Salisbury's history. That tells me all I need to know about Jake Day. He is a phony. He's only using the Mayor's office as a stepping stone to a higher political office. Look at his website to see he is on a total ego trip. He only cares about himself, not Salisbury.
