Voters in the Washington County towns of Damascus and Glade Spring will choose their respective mayors and town council members on Election Day on Tuesday.
Town mayor and council positions are open in both communities, according to sample ballots. Incumbent mayors in both towns are running against challengers.
In the race for three Town Council seats in Glade Spring, no incumbents are seeking re-election, but two of the three running for three council seats in Damascus are incumbents.
Damascus Mayor Jack R. McCrady Jr. is seeking another term. He’s been the town’s mayor since 2010.
McCrady faces challengers Kathleen M. “Katie” Lamb and Matthew Embry Bradshaw. All three own businesses in Damascus, often referred to as “Trail Town USA.”
With three open seats on Damascus Town Council on Tuesday’s ballot, all three contenders are guaranteed seats. Town council members Susan R. Seymore and M. Mitchel Greer are seeking re-election while newcomer Sean O. Albro will take the third seat.
Tony S. Rector, the incumbent mayor in Glade Spring, is seeking another term. He’s been in office since 2014 and previously served as mayor.
Rector faces challenger C. Leighann Lloyd, who works part time at the Historical Society of Washington County.
The race for Glade Spring Town Council is contested, with five people seeking three open seats. The five people on the ballot include Freddie M. Jones, Jeffrey M. Crawford, Kimberly M. Sweat, Monte R. Ward and Steven R. White.
