Wicomico County Council Returns To Drawing Board For District 2 Seat

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO COUNTY, Md. - The community grew frustrated on Tuesday morning after the county council could not move forward with a District 2 candidate because of a split vote. 

After four qualified candidates were presented to the council by the Republican Central Committee to fill Marc Kilmer's vacant seat, a 3-3 vote will put the council back at the drawing board.

Council President John Cannon said a residency concern for one of the candidates was presented at 5 p.m. on Monday night.  That concern affected the vote. 

"What is so interesting is that those four individuals had been vetted and at the council meeting prior, all of the questions with regards to residency, being nonpartisan, their concerns for Wicomico County as a whole, was asked of the candidates and they aptly responded," Donnie Waters said. 

Cannon said the Republican Central Committee will have to return with more recommendations, but it is unclear if the same candidates could be put before the council again. 

A District 2 council member needs to be decided in a special session before July 30 or else the council will go with six members until the next election.
