Hampstead residents enter race NORTH -- Manchester * Hampstead * Lineboro

Two Hampstead residents, Greg Jugo and Scott Laderer, declared themselves candidates for the May 11 Town Council race yesterday.

Mr. Jugo manages a Roy Rogers restaurant in downtown Baltimore.

He said he decided to run because "I feel like everybody should pitch in and do something."

Mr. Jugo said, "A lot of it has to do with my dad," the late Frank Jugo, who ran unsuccessfully for the Baltimore City Council in the 1960s and was very interested in politics.

The main issue facing Hampstead, Mr. Jugo said, is growth: "We're going to need some growth, but at the same time we need to keep the community sound."

He emphasized the need to get money for a Hampstead bypass from the state legislature or, if that fails, from impact fees or taxes on new businesses that come to town.

Mr. Jugo coaches soccer for 5- to 8-year-olds. He is organizing two golf tournaments at Oakmont Green to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Mr. Jugo, 36, and his wife, Concetta, have daughters ages 8 and 6. The family has lived in Roberts Field since 1988.

Mr. Laderer, a resident of Hampstead for five years, said he is running for the Town Council because he thinks newer developments in Hampstead, particularly Roberts Field and Small Crossings, need more representation on the council.

"It just seems that our concerns aren't addressed that seriously by the current council members," he said, citing the controversy over a crosswalk at North Woods Trail and Boxwood Drive as an example.

He said growth and its related challenges will be the biggest issue facing Hampstead in coming years.

Mr. Laderer, 30, is vice president of the Fields Homeowners' Association and chairman of its architectural committee. He has never run for office before.

He is a systems analyst doing contract work at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Columbia.

Mr. Laderer and his wife, Maureen, have sons ages 5 and 1.
