Clear Spring holds election



CLEAR SPRING - Vice Mayor Julie Albowicz received 49 votes Monday night to hold on to her seat as vice mayor of the town of Clear Spring.

But she was just as excited to receive 13 votes in the Kids Vote balloting which was held simultaneously with the town election.

"I'm looking forward to another two years," Julie Albowicz said. "It's a lot of work but I always enjoy it."

In the only other race, incumbent Councilman Bill Albowicz, who did not file for re-election in October, received 16 write-in votes and will retain his seat for another two years.

Bill Albowicz said in early October he was feeling the pressure of an upcoming overhaul of the town's water supply, which is why he didn't file for re-election.

But Bill Albowicz, 58, who owns a liquor store in town, said he would be willing to serve again, especially because no one else filed and he received the write-in votes.

Also receiving write-in votes were Dave Irvin, 12 votes, Stewart Brennan, 11, Teddy Hovermale, 4, Gary Grove, 3, and Hartzell Rohrer, 1.

Four young people staffed the Kids Vote table during the town election, giving 14 youngsters the opportunity to participate.

In addition to the 13 votes for Julie Albowicz, the youngsters case one vote for Al Gore, nine for Bill Albowicz and one for Dave Irvin.

Sarah Blickenstaff was the yongest to vote at age 5. Nichole Hogbin, at 16, was the oldest.

The polls were open from 2 to 7 p.m. at Clear Spring Town Hall. There were 55 votes cast and four absentee ballots.
