SALISBURY — In her final State of the City address, Salisbury Mayor
Barrie Parsons Tilghman warned residents of what she sees as a great
danger to the city: malicious bloggers.
Tilghman said in her address Thursday that over the last five years, the
presence of a small group of suspicious, mean-spirited people focused on
the negative has grown, endangering the city's vitality.
Tilghman says some people are avoiding serving their city because it's
not worth chancing the scorn of bloggers. But Tilghman says they need to
stand up for the city.
Tilghman's final day in office is April 19, but she says she plans to
remain active in the city. She says she plans to give a less formal
farewell address before leaving office.
