Stephens City picks new mayor

STEPHENS CITY -- Longtime Town Councilwoman Joy B. Shull was elected the next mayor of Stephens City on Tuesday, according to complete but unofficial election results.

Just 38 out of 1,021 registered town voters cast ballots in this year's election, according to unofficial figures from Frederick County Registrar Rick Miller. That's up from 25 voters participating in 2008, he said.

Shull was the only candidate on the ballot for mayor of Stephens City and won with 32 votes. There were no write-in votes cast for the mayor's race.

Three Town Council seats also were up for election.

Incumbents Linden A. "Butch" Fravel and James H. Harter will keep their seats, according to the unofficial results. Thirty-five people voted for Fravel and 33 voted for Harter.

Town Planning Commission member Martha W. Dilg also was elected to the Town Council with 32 votes, the results show.

Current Town Council member Michael P. Grim did not run for re-election. There was one write-in vote cast for the Town Council race.

Shull's Town Council term expires in 2012. The panel postponed its regular meeting Tuesday and will meet tonight. Town Manager Mike Kehoe said recently a replacement for Shull's vacated council seat will be discussed at the meeting.
