For Washington County Commissioner

For Washington County Commissioner

July 13, 2006

Mike Spinnler, a Democrat, has filed for a seat on the Washington County Board of Commissioners.

Spinnler, 47, is president of the Cumberland Valley Athletic Club and the director of the annual JFK 50 Mile ultramarathon.

"I really believe, on the local level, it's time for me to do a little something for this county," Spinnler said.

He and his wife, Maria, live in Hagerstown with their children, Willie, 9, and Jimmy, 7.

Spinnler moved to Washington County in 1974 and graduated from North Hagerstown High School in 1976. He is a member of St. Ann's Catholic Church and volunteers at St. Mary Catholic School.

He was an athlete at Hagerstown Community College and is an active booster there, he said.

Spinnler said he would like a county that provides a safe and fun environment for children and seniors. Spinnler said he would like the county to increase its recreational activities, and events and arts programs that are "family-friendly and drug- and alcohol-free."

Spinnler believes he can help the county by pushing for tax relief for seniors and students just out of college.

The younger population is in debt with student loans almost as soon as they graduate from college, and seniors no longer can keep up with the county's rising cost of living, he said.
