Two longtime school board members became the first candidates to file for the three seats in this fall's Board of Education election.
Gary W. Bauer, 55, a pump operator with the Baltimore City Fire Department, and C. Scott Stone, 51, a systems and program analyst with Goucher College, filed for re-election yesterday with the Carroll County elections board. Bauer has served two four-year terms, while Stone is finishing his 10th year on the board.
School board President Susan W. Krebs, 42, whose term ends in December, said yesterday that she does not intend to seek a second term.
Krebs said she plans to file next week to run for the newly created South Carroll seat in the Maryland House of Delegates. She said her decision to run for delegate also hinges on whether the new seat - representing District 9B - remains intact when the Maryland Court of Appeals redraws the state redistricting map.
Krebs, a Republican who lives in Eldersburg, had said in previous interviews that she did not plan to seek another term on the school board or seek higher office.
Democrat Kenneth Holniker, a 73-year-old attorney who has lived in Berrett for more than 30 years, was the first to file for the new delegate position. Republican Michael Zimmer, a 37-year-old lawyer who has lived in Eldersburg for 12 years, also has filed for the seat.
Redrawn election lines created the new district in South Carroll, the county's most populous area, but Maryland's highest court struck down the new legislative map Tuesday and said it planned to redraw the district boundaries itself.
The filing deadline for school board seats is July 1. The deadline for delegates is July 8. The primary election is Sept. 10. The general election is Nov. 5.
