Hagerstown Suns endorse candidates

November 04, 2002

The Hagerstown Suns has endorsed five candidates for Washington County Commissioner.

The minor league baseball team has endorsed Jim Brown, J. Herbert Hardin, Bert Iseminger, Jim Kercheval and Paul Swartz.

Those candidates have demonstrated support for using hotel-motel tax money to build a new ballpark, General Manager Kurt Landis said.

In August, team owner Andrew Rayburn said he wasn't monitoring the candidates' positions on the stadium.

But in an e-mail Friday, Landis said people have been calling the team's office to ask whom to support in the election.

Rayburn has said that without a new stadium he might move the team.
