BOONSBORO — Incumbent Boonsboro Town Councilwoman Barbara B. Wetzel and newcomer Sean K. Haardt were victorious in the town’s municipal election Tuesday, according to election results.

Wetzel was the top vote-getter in the council race for two open seats with 229 votes, according to the returns. Haardt received 199 votes.

Council candidate Robert Mose followed with 158 votes; Harold R. Kirby, 150 votes; and William Tritapoe, 51 votes, the returns showed.

Mose is the husband of Councilwoman Natalie Mose, who decided not to run for re-election.

Mayor Charles F. “Skip” Kauffman Jr., who was unopposed, received 298 votes.

A total of 408 votes were cast of the town’s 2,160 registered voters, according to the returns. Two votes were disqualified.


Wetzel was first elected to a four-year term on the council in 2008.

Kauffman, who has been mayor for 24 years, said previously that he hoped the reason he was unopposed  was because people trust him and are satisfied with what has been accomplished in the town.

Haardt will take office June 4.
