~Pocomoke Election Winners~

Maybe the weather had alot to do with the turnout at the polls yesterday in Pocomoke for the election but enough voted to show their support for Bruce Morrison and Don Malloy!

Bruce Morrison won the election with a total of 505 votes.  Lynn Duffy ended the election with  97.

In the race for Councilman in District 3, Don Malloy received a total of  67  votes.  Bobby Brittingham received 47 votes.

No word on how many absentee votes there were, if any.  More information will probably come to us later today.

Congratulations to Mayor elect Bruce Morrison and Councilman elect Donald Malloy.

And to Bobby Brittingham and Lynn Duffy:  I would just like to say that the ideas each of you have for making Pocomoke a better place are wonderful ideas.  It is my truest hope that even though you were defeated you will continue to use those same ideas so that somewhere they may be put to good use if needed.   You may not have a seat on the council or be the next Mayor but you still have voices and ideas that can be presented.

Good luck to both of you.  

And if either of want to send a message to the people of Pocomoke send it to me and I'll get it posted for you.

Congratulations Bruce and Don!

Don Malloy Files To Run For Council Seat In Pocomoke

POCOMOKE CITY -- With the filing of Don Malloy for a council seat, both offices up for grabs in Pocomoke's April 5 election have a candidate. Malloy, who had served previously on the Council from 1965-1968, filed to fill the third district seat. That seat is now up for election as Bruce Morrison, the present occupant, has filed for mayor.

Malloy said that he had been asked by a number of friends and acqaintances to put his name in for the post. He doesn't see any problems with the direction of the town but would like to see Pocomoke continue to improve, he said in an interview.

A member of the Pocomoke Volunteer Fire Company for more than 40 years, he was also active in the ambulance service. He served on the board of the historic Mar-Va Theater during a number of the years the landmark was brought back to life. He is a member of the Pocomoke Elks Lodge where he is a past exalted ruler.

One project he points to with pride is helping with the construction of the Nature Trail from Cypress Park to the edge of the Winter Quarters Golf Course.

To be eligible to run for mayor, a person must be a resident of Pocomoke City for at least one year prior to the election, a registered voter and at least 25 years old. To be eligible to run for the open council seat, a person must be a registered voter and a resident of the Third District.

The deadline for filing is Friday, Feb. 4, at Pocomoke City Hall.

The deadline for registering to vote in the election is March 4. To be eligible to register, a person must be at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, a resident of Maryland for the past six months and must have been a resident of Pocomoke City for at least 30 days just prior to the election.

Anyone who does not know his or her district of residence can find it at City Hall.
