Hagerstown City Councilwoman Susan Saum-Wicklein and her husband have filed an injunction to stop a pending foreclosure on their downtown jewelry store.
NationsBank filed the foreclosure notice on May 1, saying Saum-Wicklein and her husband, Michael Wicklein, were $23,535 behind on a $71,700 loan. The arrears includes penalty and interest, according to the foreclosure notice.
Saum Wicklein said the bank is in error and that she's never missed a payment on the 1991 business loan.
The injunction, along with a deposit of $10,603, were filed in Washington County Circuit Court May 9.
"I can't allow a big-city bank and a big-city lawyer to push us around like this,'' Saum-Wicklein said Tuesday.
The foreclosure battle is being fought just days before the May 20 city election in which Saum-Wicklein is seeking a third term.
