Three council members keep seats in Boonsboro

May 12, 2010|By DAN DEARTH

Three Boonsboro council members and the assistant mayor were re-elected to serve new terms Tuesday during the town election.

Assistant Mayor Howard Long, who ran unopposed, collected 273 votes, Town Clerk Barbara Rodenhiser said.

Securing the four council seats that were up for grabs were newcomer Janeen Solberg and incumbents Kevin Chambers, Cynthia Kauffman and Natalie Mose. Rodenhiser said five write-in candidates also appeared on the ballot for council.

Kauffman had 217 votes, Chambers had 185 votes, Solberg had 174 votes and Mose had 170 votes, Rodenhiser said.

Write-in candidates Harry "Bo" Quinn received four votes, Ray Hoffman and Dennis Reese each collected two votes, and Jennifer Sarnecki and Joan Sweigert had one vote apiece.

All of the winning candidates will serve four-year terms except Mose, Rodenhiser said.

Mose, who had the lowest vote total among the four winners, will serve a two-year term to adjust the town's election cycle, which was disrupted some time ago by the resignation of a former council member.


Rodenhiser said 324 of the town's 2,073 eligible voters cast ballots.

The winning candidates will be sworn-in next month, Rodenhiser said.
