Municipal Election Preview: Ocean City Council Candidates Talk Qualifications, Taxes, Smoking

OCEAN CITY — The five Ocean City Council candidates vying for the four open council seats took part this week in a question-and-answer session leading up to next month’s election.

Incumbents Doug Cymek, Dennis Dare, Tony DeLuca and Mary Knight are looking to retain their seats, while challenger John Gehrig is looking to become an elected official for the first time.

Cymek was elected to office in 2008 and is seeking a third, four-year term. Dare is looking to serve his second term after being the top vote getter in the 2012 election. DeLuca was elected two years ago to serve the remaining two years of Joe Mitrecic’s council term after he was elevated to the post of county commissioner. Knight, who has served as council secretary since 2012, was first elected in 2006.

Don't care about how long you've been on council; whether you advocate OC: being an independent thinker or friggin ciggy butts

Taxes are front/center since WEST OC is exploding and what's the new strategic plan given the prior city manager was let go.

Not to mention, how many vacant business will remain going into 2017 (i.e., JRs and the old HALLS).

Hall's has reopened under another name.
The real problem (in that regard) is that 94th Street shopping center.
