Mayor Ireton Responds To Council President

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - After Friday's comments from the City Council president, the mayor is firing back.

Mayor Jim Ireton and mayoral candidate Joe Albero are speaking out after the City Council said they would stop payment to acting fire chief Rick Hoppes.

We're told his temporary extension ended on January 22nd.

"I feel for Jim that he couldn't get one of his appointees confirmed. As mayor, you try to put somebody through, but at the same time, you can't violate the law," said Albero. "If your city attorney turns around and gives you a ruling and the attorney general gives you a ruling, that's it. I think it's been out of control."

"I would imagine that Mr. Albero and Mrs. Campbell will probably get in kind donation from Council President Cohen from her performance yesterday," said Ireton. "But what we have is what Salisbury is so sick of and so tired of is someone beating down someone else because they're not getting what they want."

An emergency meeting is set for Monday at City Hall.
