CLEAR SPRING - Fifty-nine voters showed up at the polls Monday to choose two candidates in Clear Spring's town election.
Julie Albowicz received 26 write-in votes for vice mayor, a position she currently holds but wasn't on the ballot for in the Monday election. The only name on the ballot for that seat was that of her late husband, Bill Albowicz, who died on Oct. 26.
Newcomer Terry Baker took the only vacant council seat, garnering 38 votes, said Town Clerk Juanita Grimm shortly after the polls at Town Hall closed at 7 p.m.
Bill Albowicz's name had to remain on the ballots because it was on the four absentee ballots that were distributed before his death, Grimm said.
