Candidates look to serve community

October 10, 2006

CLEAR SPRING - Being useful to the community they live in was what prompted both candidates to file for town office in the upcoming election.

"I want to do anything that is good for the town," said Stewart Brennan, the sole candidate for the open council seat.

Brennan, 86, served on town council from 1983-86.

Born and raised in the Clear Spring area, Brennan never stopped doing things for the town even after he went out of office.

"The people who are in are doing a good job," he said. "I'll just help out."

Current Councilman Steve Blickenstaff, 43, has filed for the vice mayor position, currently held by Terry Baker, a candidate for Washington County Commissioner.


"My goal is to make improvements to the town without added cost to the taxpayers," Blickenstaff said.

He works for the Washington County Department of Permits and Inspections.

The town election is Monday, Nov. 6, at town hall from 2 to 7 p.m. Kids Vote will be at the same time.

To vote in the town election, voters must be able to prove they have lived within town limits for the past 30 days.

Absentee ballots must be returned to Town Hall by election day. For more information, call 301-842-2252.
