In Taneytown’s municipal elections this spring, current Mayor Jim McCarron is officially running for a fourth term, while current Councilmen Bradley Wantz and Donald Frazier, as well as former Councilman Paul Chamberlain, will seek to unseat him on Election Day, May 6.
Both Wantz and Frazier would have been up for re-election to continue serving on the Taneytown City Council. But because they are running for mayor, two seats are now open on the Taneytown council, and three men — Barry Guckes, Daniel Haines and Darryl Hale — are running for those two seats.
The election will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on May 6, at the Taneytown Police Department at 120 E. Baltimore St.
