Ballot Fills Out as Deadline Loooms

BLYTHEWOOD – Four candidates have filed for four seats in the upcoming Town elections set for Nov. 3.

Mayor J. Michael Ross, a Cobblestone Park resident, has filed to run for a second term as mayor.

Councilman Eddie Baughman, who lives in Lake Ashley, and Malcolm Gordge, who lives in Ashley Oaks and is Chairman of the Planning Commission, have filed to run for the two open four-year terms on Town Council. Baughman is seeking a second term. Current Councilman Bob Mangone, a Cobblestone Park resident, has not filed for a second term and told The Voice that he is not sure of his plans.

A newcomer to the community, Michelle Kiebrowski, filed for the two years left on a four-year term vacated by former Councilman Bob Massa who resigned in June. Kiebrowski, a native of Nebraska who moved to Cobblestone Park last October, said that while she has not attended any town meetings or had time to learn about the town’s issues, she is running so that all the people in the town will be well represented.

The only Council seat not up for election is held by Tom Utroska, also a resident of Cobblestone Park.

Those wishing to be on the Nov. 3 ballot must file by 5 p.m., Sept. 2. For more information about filing, call Town Clerk Melissa Coward at Town Hall, 754-0501.
