Sharpsburg sets November vote



By JULIE E. GREENE / Staff Writer


SHARPSBURG - Forget Bush. Forget Gore.

Sharpsburg's got its own election this November when voters will have to decide who will now check on the town's contractors, keep an eye on the Town Pond and keep the Town Council meetings running in an orderly fashion.

The mayoral seat is up for grabs with Mayor George Kesler announcing he will not seek re-election.

Two Town Council seats are also available, that of long-standing Councilman Ralph Hammond and Councilman Hal Spielman. Hammond and Spielman both said they expect to run to retain their council seats.

Town residents have until midnight Nov. 6 to file to run for office in the Nov. 21 town election, said Election Board Supervisor Anna Louise Jamison.

Residents must be 21 years old and have lived in Sharpsburg for at least one year prior to the upcoming election to run for office, Jamison said.

The mayor makes $300 a year. Council members earn $30 a year. Both earn an additional $1 for each special meeting they attend, said Treasurer Tom McCall.

Each office is a four-year term.

The deadline to register to vote in the town election is Oct. 17, Jamison said. If you are registered to vote in Washington County, you're eligible to vote in the town election.

To register to vote in the town election or to file for candidacy, residents are asked to call Election Board Supervisor Anna Louise Jamison at 301-432-6572.
