Developers Speak Out Against Council Decision On Board Of Election

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - Controversy over where the Board of Elections could move took up most of the public comments period during Wicomico County Council legislative session.

Several property managers rallied behind E.S. Adkins, the company whose property the county previously rejected as an option for the board of elections, after public testimony about break-ins and crime near the site off of Route 13.

Those property managers lobbying council on Tuesday included competitors of E.S. Adkins and they asked the county to reconsider due to a lack of factual information.

"We are one of the safest places in Salisbury.  We have very low crime," said William Turner, president of E.S. Adkins. "It's an older part of town. We've spent millions of dollars to renovate our site. We have a very successful site and I'm really disturbed that the council made a decision without all the facts in front of them."

County Council will not reconsider their decision as they denied a second public hearing. No site has been chosen for the new Board of Elections.
