Marschner is a professor of music, drama and the humanities at Hagerstown Community College.

He earned a master's degree in modern humanities from Frostburg State University and a bachelor's degree in music composition from Shepherd University.

Marschner said he doesn't want to be negative, but several council members have agendas that distract them from looking at the city as a whole.

Although effort needs to be put into developing downtown so residents don't have to live in a community with a "rotting center," the city cannot overlook residents who earn a less-than-modest income, Marschner said.

Marschner also said he favors bringing high-paying jobs to the city.

"I see potential growth," he said. "I think we can do a better job to build partnerships between the public and private sectors."
