Mohar, a serviceman for Columbia Gas, said he would serve as a "voice of the every-day guy." He said he decided to run for council because he disagrees with some of the things it has spent money on and feels he could help the city save money.

"That's my goal," he said. "Instead of hiring someone to tell us if we need another parking garage or not, I think we could probably do that in-house." He said he feels the current council sometimes lacks respect for the residents it serves. For example, he said allowing construction to remain unfinished on Jonathan Street is unfair to the residents who live on it.

Mohar said his goal as a council member would be to make residents more aware of what goes on in city government. If something can't be done, he would explain to the residents why that is.

Mohar graduated from high school in Pennsylvania and attended a year and a half of college. He has lived in Hagerstown for 23 years and worked for Columbia Gas for 22 of them.

"I visit about 20 different homes a day and I think I get a lot of input just in my daily work," he said.
