A Conversation with Easton Council President John Ford


As a result of feedback from Spy readers over the last few months, we begin today a series of interviews over the next year with Talbot County and town council presidents. By providing a platform to highlight particular issues and opportunities through these conversations, it is hoped this new format will encourage more civic engagement.

We continue our new series with a discussion with John Ford, president of the Easton Town Council.  In our first conversation, John talks about Easton’s economic development (including prospects for a downtown grocery store), zoning for Easton Point (a critical part of the Port Street projet), multiculturalism, and filling the Council vacancy of Pete Lesher, who recently won an election for the Talbot County Council, among other topics.

This video is approximately eighteen minutes in length. For more information on the Easton Town Council please go here
