CLEAR SPRING -- The Clear Spring mayor and two members of the Town Council will run unopposed in the Nov. 2 election.
Mayor Paul D. Hose Jr. and council members Carol Hovermale and Theodore Hovermale were the only candidates who filed by the deadline at 9 p.m. Monday to run in the upcoming town election, Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said.
All three seats, which carry two-year terms, are up for grabs.
The Clear Spring election will be Nov. 2 from 2 to 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
Hose said he was first elected to serve as mayor in 1984. Since then, Hose has served off and on for 24 years.
"I just figured I'd try it again," Hose said of running for another term.
Hose said one of the biggest challenges will be trying to keep things running if Washington County officials cut financial aid to municipalities.
