Tonight on ‘One On One’: Mayor Jim Ireton

PAC 14 Preview

Mayor Jim Ireton has an energy and enthusiasm that can be overwhelming.
That comes through tonight in the first of two “One On One” interviews with Salisbury’s mayor.
In the city’s top office since 2009, Ireton is a Salisbury native who previously served on the City Council.
He’s been a teacher in Wicomico County for nearly two decades. A resident of the John Lake Neighborhood, he honed his political skills while serving on various volunteer and nonprofit committees.
Ireton has presided over a time of resurgance in the city. Crime rates have been lowered and relations with his council colleagues have been more civil of late.
In a free-wheeling discussion, we address issues including: the tax didfferential with the the county, overcrowding in some city rentals homes, steps to reduce city crime, successes in managing city finances, ideas for cracking down on adult businesses, Downtown redevelopment and the region’s economic prospects — especially in the light of Labinal’s recent movement announcement.
“One On One” premiers at 7:30 p.m. and will be shown several more times over the next week.
A second half-hour show with the mayor will premiere Feb. 12.
All PAC 14 programming is available on demand at www.PAC14.org.
