CLEAR SPRING -- Two candidates are running for the Clear Spring Town Council seat that will be vacated in January by Councilman Stewart Brennan.
Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said Pamela M. Sasser and Walter D. Irvin Jr. are seeking Brennan's seat.
Vice Mayor Steven L. Blickenstaff is running uncontested, Grimm said.
The election will be Nov. 3 from 2 to 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
Sasser, a customer service manager at Sovereign Bank in downtown Hagerstown, said she wants to focus on keeping taxes in check because people are suffering in today's sluggish economy.
"I see the hardship," said Sasser, who lives in Clear Spring with her husband and son. "... I'd like to continue the outstanding work that the town council has done. I'd like to be a part of that team."
