Election set to replace Annapolis alderman

October 30, 2007|By a Sun reporter

A special election has been scheduled in Annapolis for the alderman's seat vacated by Michael Christman, Mayor Ellen O. Moyer said yesterday.

The primary election in Ward 2 will be held Nov. 27, with the special general election Dec. 19.

The winner will fill the final two years of Christman's term. The Republican, one of only two on the eight-member city council, was elected in 2005 but officially resigned last week, noting frequent travel for his job. His wife also recently accepted a job in Australia.

His ward includes the neighborhoods of Admiral Heights, Wardour, West Annapolis and the public housing communities around Clay Street.

Two candidates have stepped forward seeking to replace him: Debbie Rosen McKerrow, a Democrat who narrowly lost to Christman two years ago, and Karen Jennings of the Green Party. GOP Alderman David H. Cordle Sr. has said his party is looking at potential candidates.
