At the latest Ocean View council meeting, it was announced that there will be a town-wide election (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) on Saturday, April 13, for the next District 1 member. There will also be a candidates’ night on Wednesday, March 27, at the town hall on West Avenue. I am a candidate and look forward to this discussion.
Barbara and I became permanent residents in recent years but built our home here in 2006. I have been a local volunteer with the Coast Guard Auxiliary for 14 years and am serving a third term on the Board of Control of Coast Guard Mutual Assistance, which is the relief society for the U.S. Coast Guard. Prior to retiring from Gallaudet University, I served two terms as a town council member in Maryland.
There will be subsequent letters, but for now please put March 27 and April 13 on your calendars. The last day to register to vote in Ocean View is April 1.
