Middletown residents on Nov. 6 will head to the polls to vote on three candidates running unopposed for Town Council seats.
Middletown’s polling location is at the Middletown Elementary School at 190 Mustang Lane, off U.S. 11. Polls will open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
Residents should vote even if the local races are uncontested, town officials said.
“It is still paramount for Middletown residents to get out and vote, not just for the state and federal elections but also for our town elections, said Middletown Mayor Charles Harbaugh. “We have three tremendous individuals running unopposed on the ballot.”
On the ballot are Councilmen Jeff Pennington and Scott Fink. Daryl Terrill is also on the ballot, seeking election to the council seat that will be left vacant when Councilman and Vice Mayor Tom Simon steps down.
Simon, who has served on the council since 2012, is leaving office after taking a new job that requires more travel.
Terrill has been on the town’s Planning Commission for two years and is its chairman.
Harbaugh said Terrill will bring experience in tourism to the Town Council.
Pennington has served on the council for five years after having been appointed to fill in for a year when a vacancy on the council occurred. He then won a four-year term in the last election.
Harbaugh said Pennington is a thoughtful person who pays attention to details and brings a historical perspective to the council.
Fink has served four years on the council.
Fink sits on the Public Safety Committee, as well as on the Human Resources and the Finance Committee.
Harbaugh said Fink is energetic and brings a business and community focus to the council.
“I really look forward to serving with these community-minded individuals,” Harbaugh said.
