Three More File for Council Races

BLYTHEWOOD – Three more residents have filed to run for three open seats on the Town Council. Tom Utroska of Cobblestone Park has filed for one of the four-year seats and Bob Mangone, also of Cobblestone Park, has filed for the two-year term vacated in June by Jeff Branham. Another resident from Cobblestone Park has also filed but his application was not completed at press time, according to Town Clerk Martha Weaver. She said she could not release the name until the application was completed.

Three other candidates had already filed: current Councilmen Paul Moscati and Ed Garrison, both of Lake Ashley, and Bryan Franklin of Ashley Oaks. The last day to file is Friday, Sept. 6 at noon. Candidates must file at the Town Hall, 171 Langford Road in downtown Blythewood. The Town’s general election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Citizens who want to run for one of the vacant Council seats must be registered voters within the town limits of Blythewood. The filing fee is $5. For filing information, contact Weaver at 754-0501.

Anyone wishing to vote in the election must be a registered voter in the Town by Oct. 5.
