Who is Wayne King?

As a child I had the best of both worlds. I grew up in Huntington, NY on Long Island. Very similar demographics as Salisbury. Huntington's population is 35,000 people, where Salisbury is about 33,000. In the summers I spent time in the country at my Dad's lake where we had campgrounds. It is in Catawissa, PA and is called LAKE GLORY.

As adulthood approached I really got into athletics. Baseball and golf were my primary sports. I also got introduced to business for my first time. After High School I went to West Virginia University where I studied business administration. Unfortunately, when I was 20 years old my father asked me if I would quit school and come work for him so I could learn the business. My father knew his health was failing. I obliged my father and quit college and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Tackling the hardest stuff with transparency, honesty, prioritizing what needs to be done.

College can teach you in theory how to run a business, but you never learn more than by running your own business. Five years later my father had a major stroke, so I took over the business, took on a partner, and I expanded into different fields of my trade. My business sold horticultural products wholesale and retail. The business also added an E-commerce website. While owning this business for 20 years I was introduced to the swamp at various town halls on more than one occasion.

Six years ago I sold my business, I needed a change after running the business for 20 years and being around it my whole life. In the interim between selling the business and moving to Salisbury I did outside sales selling contracting for Home Depot and Lowes. Four years ago I moved to Salisbury.

I am 51 years old and I am a Conservative Republican.
