Delmarva governors meeting postponed amid Northam controversy

SALISBURY, Md. –¬†Virginia’s leader finds himself in some very hot water after a racist photo emerged late Friday night on his medical school year book page.

Governor Ralph Northam has not made a public appearance since Saturday, but calls for his resignation have been overwhelming. They’ve come from people like Former Vice President Joe Biden and friends from his inner circle like Former Governor Terry McAuliffe.

Calls for resignation and turmoil that now exists in Richmond is likely the reason for the postponement of a major local event.

Salisbury University was set to host Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and Delaware Governor John Carney as part of a one-of-a-kind discussion next Monday.

But for now at least, all parties involved have hit the pause button as they wait for things to settle down.

“We wish it would have been this coming Monday, but it’s not and we have an agreement with all parties that you know when things settle down a little bit that we will set a new date and will do it again,” explains Mike Dunn, President and CEO of Greater Salisbury Committee.

The Greater Salisbury Committee will play host to the question and answer that is designed to support bipartisanship and collaboration.

A makeup date has yet to be scheduled. If or when it happens, it would be the first time all three Delmarva governors would visit the Eastern Shore.
