Bath mayor wants to see better election turnout

April 07, 2005|by TRISH RUDDER

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Town of Bath Mayor Susan Webster said Wednesday she has filed for re-election.

Webster said she wants all Bath Town Council members to get people out to vote on June 14.

"We have something to prove this time. There are good and wonderful people in this town," she said.

In the last election, only 13 people in town voted and the state law requirement is 20. A petition to dissolve the town was filed by 22 residents, but it was struck down by the Morgan County Commission because the town's Berkeley Springs Water Works had a $2.8 million debt.

The mayor, town recorder and five council members are up re-election. Candidates must be 18 years old and have been a resident at least 30 days. The last day to file is April 16. Forms are available at Town Hall, 103 Wilkes St., in Berkeley Springs.

In order to vote, town residents must reside within the town limits for at least 30 days before election day.

Councilman Dave Hall said early voting is available starting 20 days before June 14. People can register to vote at the Morgan County Court House, and voting will take place at Town Hall.
