Mayor of Salisbury endorses Duncan's gubernatorial bid

March 02, 2006|BY A SUN REPORTER

The gubernatorial bid of Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan was endorsed by the mayor of Salisbury this week.

The Eastern Shore city's Mayor Barrie Tilghman said she was impressed with Duncan's crime-fighting proposal, which includes state assistance for 1,000 more police officers.

"As a mayor, I greatly respect Doug's record of partnership as county executive with local communities to achieve results," Tilghman said in a statement. "I know he has what it takes to put his plan into action and deliver on his promises to make all Maryland communities safer."

Duncan is battling Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley for the Democratic nomination, and both candidates have vowed to perform better in rural areas such as the Eastern Shore than party nominee Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the former lieutenant governor, did four years ago.

Duncan has been a regular visitor to the Eastern Shore, and O'Malley was in Western Maryland this week.
