BOONSBORO -- Cynthia Kauffman said she hopes to keep her town council seat and help strike a fair balance between town spending and services.

Kauffman, 57, of 416 N. Main St., is one of four candidates for four council seats in Tuesday's election. She ran unsuccessfully in 2008, then was appointed to a vacant council seat last year.

Incumbents Kevin Chambers and Natalie Mose also are running for council seats along with first-time candidate Janeen Solberg.

Assistant Mayor Howard W. Long is running unopposed for re-election.

Kauffman said her father, Eugene C. Smith, served on the council from the late 1970s until 1990. He was a councilman and a treasurer.

Kauffman is the wife of Mayor Charles F. "Skip" Kauffman Jr., but said she has her own views and they don't always match her husband's.


She has served on the town's Police and Public Safety Committee and the library board.

Kauffman didn't know The Herald-Mail tried to reach her Friday for an election story, so she contacted the newspaper Saturday.

Voting will be Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Shafer Memorial Park's community center.
