New faces lining up for Frederick vote

FREDERICK — One thing is certain in the municipal election in Frederick: The Board of Trustees will have three new faces.

Cecil Davis and Karen Dunbar are not running for re-election. Trustee Mike Hattel is term-limited and will step down after serving for 12 years. Six people are vying for those three seats: Wayne Barcewski; Liberta Hattel; Tony Cary; Gerald Pfirsch; James Wollack; Louis Evezich.

Mayor Eric Doering is facing off against Glenn Berry, who was first active in Frederick politics as the vice chairman of the town’s Home-Rule Charter Commission last year.

Frederick town administrator Derek Todd said he has seen a number of trustee spots turn over quickly before, and it’s usually nothing to be concerned about. He expects the same to hold true in Frederick.

“I think that everybody is running with good intentions, and it will be interesting to meet with new people and understand their views on things,” he said.

Carbon Valley Chamber of Commerce president Steve Burton said this election may mark a shift in Frederick.

“As the town grows, I think we are seeing people with different and various talents,” he said of the trustee pool. “That changeover is good.”

He said he’s not saying that past boards have not had talented trustees. “But as the town grows and evolves, so will the board,” he said.
