In preparation for the 2018 municipal election, the Town of Frederick will be hosting Running in the Right Direction at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday December 6 at Town Hall (401 Locust St.). Running in the Right Direction is an informational meeting where candidates can learn more about what is expected of an elected official as well as campaigning guidelines and deadlines.

Three trustee positions on the Board of Trustees will be up for election on April 3, 2018. Each of the positions will serve a four-year term. These trustee positions are currently held by Rafer Burnham, Donna Hudziak, and Fred Skates. Rafer Burnham is term-limited after eight consecutive years in office.

Qualifications for the positions include:
•Must be 18 years of age
•Must be a registered elector in the Town of Frederick
•Must have resided in the Town of Frederick for a period of at least 12 consecutive months, except that, in the case of annexation, any person who has resided in the annexed territory for the time prescribed meets the residency requirement.

Anyone who meets these qualifications can pick up a nomination packet from the Town Clerk at Town Hall (401 Locust St.) beginning January 2, 2018. Packets must be returned no later than 5:00 p.m. on January 22, 2018.

“We encourage anyone interested in joining us on the Board of Trustees to attend Running in the Right Direction,” said Mayor Tony Carey. “It is a huge responsibility to represent the interests of the community you live in, but it is also an exciting and rewarding experience that I hope potential candidates will come learn more about.”
