HANCOCK - On Monday, Hancock voters will select a new mayor and replace half of the four-person Town Council.
Councilman Daniel Murphy and former Hancock Police Chief James McAulay are running for mayor.
Mayor Ralph Wachter announced in November that he would not seek a third two-year term.
The mayor's job pays $800 a year and a council job pays $600 a year, Town Manager Louis Close said.
Murphy, 44, of 212 Maryland Ave., is a veterinarian who was elected to a four-year term on the council in 1993.
A resident since 1977, Murphy is a member of the Hancock Rotary, chairman of the Hancock Fire and Emergency Fund, a director and past president of the Hancock Development Corp. and a charter member and treasurer of the Hancock Historical Society.
