City of Crisfield Elects New Mayor

Posted:

 CRISFIELD, Md.- Former council member Kimberly Lawson defeated five other candidates to become the next mayor of Crisfield Wednesday night.  He received 216 votes.  In a public forum Monday, Lawson said the way to get more people coming to Crisfield is to increase business opportunities.  

Lawson will replace two-term Mayor Percy J. Purnell who decided to retire from city politics, and run for the District 38A seat in the House of Delegates.

Three seats were also up for grabs on the Crisfield City Council.  The winners are Charlotte Scott with 284 votes, Paul Eric Emely with 262 votes, and current council member Mark Konapelsky gets to keep his seat with 214 votes.
