Attorney General, mayor to lead engagement initiative

Mayor Jim Ireton invites the public to participate in a candid discussion of violence in our community Thursday at 7:30 p.m., at Salisbury Fire Headquarters on Cypress Street.

Maryland’s Attorney General, Brian Frosh will join the Mayor and representatives from several local outreach groups to offer insight into the ongoing efforts across our community, state, and nation to end violent crime.

“Throughout the country a debate rages about the issues that have, again, come front and center for Salisbury,” Ireton said. “Much of the debate and discourse is less than productive. The goal of this engagement is to address root causes, and to give the community a chance to weigh in and become aware of resources that are currently available.”

Speakers will include:

  • Mary Ashanti, Wicomico County Chapter, NAACP
  • Cindy Shifler, Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drugs Prevention Coordinator, Wicomico County Health Department
  • Michele Ennis-Benn, Director, Tri-Community Mediation
  • Captain Kevin M. King, Administrative Captain / Asst. Facility Administrator, Poplar Hill Pre-Release Unit
  • Michele Hughes, Executive Director, Life Crisis Center of Wicomico County
  • Thelonius Williams, Office of the Mayor
