Incumbents Win Again

Picked Up From WGMD

Bethany Beach voters opted to return the incumbents to Town Hall. Three seats were up for grabs with 5 candidates vying for the spots on the council. Joseph Healy was the top vote getter with 588 followed by Jerry Dorfman with 541 and Carol Olmstead with 512. Challengers Tony Carmen received 282 votes and Thomas Lennon got 200 votes. The winners will be sworn in during a special organizational meeting will be held at 4pm September 20th. The council will also select a Mayor, Vice Mayor and Secretary-Treasurer.

Now isn't this the way it is. People complain about the operation of government and the lack of new ideals but they return the same people to office each year. Like they say "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."
