A tearful April Jackson apologized for a Facebook Post last week that we Reported First. There were many individuals present at the City Council meeting to support Ms. Jackson along with others who initially came to criticize Jackson but wound up accepting her apology and forgiving her.
Time will tell if she learns from this and if she can be an effective leader. One mother of a child with Downs Syndrome met with Councilwoman Jackson privately and then asked that any recall petition be stopped.
One Salisbury resident, Jermichael Mitchell, brought up a similar incident from 2015 where Wicomico County Councilman Larry Dodd posted this on Facebook about a developmentally disabled child and the media did not report on it:
Dodd has been known to post insensitive items and occasionally makes outrageous comments. His social media pages have been cleaned up but there is likely still something out there.
