Shepherdstown is facing many crucial decision points in the near future, especially around issues such as growth and development, parking solutions, and downtown business health. A strong and diverse Town Council is necessary. Consider if this is the time for you to take your turn at the helm.
The June 3rd, 2014 Shepherdstown election will be conducted to fill the seats of Mayor, Recorder and five Council Members, all of which are two year terms. Candidates must file a notarized Certificate of Announcement and turn it in to Town Hall between March 3 and March 14, 2014. Candidates must fulfill the eligibility requirements for voter registration and be a resident of the Corporation of Shepherdstown.
Town Council members attend a monthly meeting to consider public input and vote on decisions, and must also participate in at least two town committees. Meetings are generally held in the evenings and readily accommodate a working person’s schedule.
Instructions for filing candidacy and the full election schedule can be found at the town’s website: www.shepherdstown.us You are also invited to contact the town clerk at 304-876-2398 for more information.
