Residents new and old are reminded that Washington Grove is a self-governing municipality dependent on volunteers to serve as Mayor and Town Councilors. Candidates for Mayor must be Town residents of at least two years. Candidates for Town Council must have resided in Town for at least one year. The Mayor serves a one year-term, Town Councilors three-year terms
Election Day will be Saturday, May 9 next year. Nominations for office will be open until early April and require the signature of two qualified voters and the consent of the nominee. As you enjoy the Holidays and perhaps some time to think, please consider seeking office as a way to contribute. DEMOCRACY DIES IN DARKNESS, they say, and the rules are made by those who show up.
