All Quiet in the Town of Chevy Chase

Election Board Member Costis Toregas, County Councilmember Marc Elrich, Town Councilmember David Lublin and Senator Rich Madaleno outside Chevy Chase Town Hall at the Lawton Center

Unlike in Chevy Chase Village which has seven candidates running for three seats in an election to be held this Saturday, elections were quiet this year in the Town of Chevy Chase with no one challenging the three incumbents, including yours truly. However, County Councilmembers Roger Berliner, Marc Elrich and Nancy Floreen stopped by to say hello as did Senator Rich Madaleno along with Delegates Al Carr, Ana Sol Gutierrez, and Jeff Waldstreicher.

The vote tallies came in shortly after the Town's Annual Meeting; 159 ballots were cast in the election--a low turnout since there were only three candidates for the three seats. Here are the official results:

Kathy Strom, 120 votes
David Lublin, 118 votes
Al Lang, 103 votes.
