HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Hagerstown Mayor Robert Bruchey could face two challengers in municipal elections this year.

The Herald-Mail reported Friday that printing press operator Brian Caron filed by Wednesday’s deadline to oppose Bruchey in the April 3 Republican primary.

The winner of that race will face Democrat David Gysberts on Nov. 6. Gysberts is a city planning commission member who works as a counselor in Montgomery County public schools. He lost to Bruchey by 16 percentage points in the last
election.

Bruchey served as mayor from 1997 to 2001 but lost two successive re-election bids. The City Council reappointed him in 2006 after then-Mayor Richard Trump resigned. Bruchey then won re-election to the post.
