WASHINGTON COUNTY - Two Washington County Commissioners said Tuesday they are considering applying for a House of Delegates seat left vacant by former Del. Robert A. McKee, who resigned last week.
Commissioners James F. Kercheval and William J. Wivell have not submitted applications for the seat and said they have not been approached by the Washington County Republican Central Committee about the position.
Wivell was elected a county commissioner in November 1998. Kercheval was elected in November 2002.
McKee, a Republican, represented Subdistrict 2A, which runs west from Cascade and Smithsburg, along the northern part of Washington County, and wraps around Hagerstown as it stretches south to Williamsport.
Political observers have mentioned former Commissioner Gregory I. Snook as a possibility to fill the seat. Snook did not return calls to his work or home Tuesday.
