KEEDYSVILLE -- Keedysville Assistant Mayor Barry Levey is facing competition to keep his job.

Levey and Dennis Embley, of 30 N. Main St., have filed to run for the assistant mayor job in the May 1 election, Town Administrator Richard L. Bishop said in an e-mail to The Herald-Mail on Tuesday.

The deadline for candidates to file was Monday.

The assistant mayor is also a member of the Town Council.

Two other Town Council seats also are up for election: those of Richard Walton and David Brumage.

The only other person who filed to run for Town Council was David Bajuscak, of 15 Appomattox Court, Bishop said.

Phone numbers were not available for Embley or Bajuscak.

Brumage could not be reached for comment.

Levey, 50, of 9 Dogstreet Road, is the public safety systems manager for the Washington County Sheriff's Office, he said. He became acting assistant mayor in September 2006 after the assistant was elevated to replace the late Mayor Kenneth Lee Brandenburg II, according to Herald-Mail archives. Levey also has served as a town councilman.


Walton, 75, of 42 S. Main St., teaches business courses for Frostburg (Md.) State University and New School University in New York - online, said his wife, Suzanne Walton. Richard Walton could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

Candidates must be registered voters who have lived in Keedysville for at least six months immediately preceding the election. The seats have four-year terms.

The election will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Town Hall on Saturday, May 1, according to the town's Web site.
