SMITHSBURG - Smithsburg Mayor Mildred "Mickey" Myers will run unopposed in the town's general election this spring, town officials announced Tuesday.
Myers and three other candidates in the town's May election were announced during the town's monthly council meeting.
Incumbent Councilman Ralph Regan and two newcomers, Dennis "Jack" Wenthe and Thomas Chiarizia, will run in the spring election, vying for two open council seats.
Councilman William Mills said in January that he was not running in the spring election because he has purchased a home in Pennsylvania. Mills was appointed to the council in 2004.
The deadline to apply for candidacy was April 3. The general election is May 9.
"Even though there aren't that many people signed up, we hope to have a good turnout for the general election," Myers said.
