Jeff Six resigns position on Union Bridge council

December 29, 1992|By Traci A. Johnson | Traci A. Johnson,Staff Writer

For nearly six years he was part of the five-person Union Bridge Town Council.

But five minus Six will equal one council seat that needs to be filled.

Jeff Six, a heavy-machine operator for Lehigh Portland Cement Co., said goodbye to his position during last night's monthly council meeting because he is moving out of town.

"I'd like to finish out my term, but my house is just about finished, and I expect to move in around the end of January," said Mr. Six, 35, who was elected in May 1987.

"I've made some friends here, and lost a few, but I have really enjoyed myself here," he said.

Mr. Six moved to Union Bridge 16 years ago from Harney, with his wife, Linda, who grew up near Taneytown.

He is the Worshipful Master at Masonic Lodge Plymouth 143 in Union Bridge and also volunteers with the town's fire company.

In his capacity on the council, he was the chairman of the streets committee and served on the committee overseeing the building of the new town hall on Locust Street.

His new home is on Route 194 between his mother-in-law's home outside Taneytown and his parents' home in Keymar.

"I really like Union Bridge, but we really wanted to live in the country," said Mr. Six, whose daughter, Stacy, 13, attends New Windsor Middle School. "I wouldn't mind helping out the new person they choose to replace me, to get them oriented.

"I just hope they have as much fun and make as many friends as I did here."

The mayor and council will look into appointing a replacement for Mr. Six by the next council meeting, scheduled for Jan. 25.

Mr. Six said he expects to remain active with the lodge, the fire company and the town hall committee, which received 14 bids from contractors interested in doing the work.

During last night's meeting, council members looked over the design proposals of the one-story building to be attached to the town's historic Pump House.
