Dagsboro readies to fill two council seats Dec. 2

Dagsboro voters will head to the polls next Saturday, Dec. 2, to choose who will fill two seats on the town council. Councilmen Kurt Czapp and Andy Enghe are not running for re-election, freeing their seats for newcomers. The two-year terms will begin Dec. 18, with a swearing in at that night’s council meeting.

As of Wednesday, Nov. 21, there were two official candidates: Terry Hearn and Norwood Truitt, both of whom had been fully qualified. Dagsboro Town Clerk Stacy Long said a third candidate, Benjamin Parkinson, had applied to run for a council seat but information to officially qualify him was still pending.

Voting will take place from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Dec. 2 at the Dagsboro Fire Hall. Both residents and property owners are qualified to vote.

Long said voters should bring identification to the polls, preferably a driver’s license with their current Dagsboro address on it. Non-resident property owners who have purchased property within the last month will need to bring in a copy of their deed, she warned, as the town will not have recent property transfer records available.

Residents who have recently moved to Dagsboro and do not have a driver’s license with their new address on it should be prepared with another form of proof of residence, such as a utility bill, Long said.
