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
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.
