With the late addition Monday of two new city council challengers, Trudie Norman and Zenobia Todd, the ballot for Aberdeen’s November 3 municipal election has swelled to 10 candidates – 3 vying for mayor and now 7 for city council.
The race for mayor pits incumbent Mayor Michael E. Bennett against incumbent city council president Michael G. Hiob and former state delegate and county councilwoman Barbara Osborn Kreamer.
In the 7-way race for the 4 seats on the Aberdeen City Council, incumbent city council members Ruth E. Elliott, Ruth Ann Young and Ronald Kupferman face opposition from local businessman Bruce E. Garner, longtime city planning and zoning commissioner Sandra J. Landbeck, and now Trudie Norman and Zenobia Todd.
The City of Aberdeen Municipal Election will be held Tuesday, November 3, 2009 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Aberdeen Senior Center on Franklin Street.

Explain to me why completly unknown people who never attend anything, expect to win an election when they should know that they have little chance. Like the late entries for council, and esspescialy Barbara Kreamer??
Note: Not that I dont support compition or anything, or a persons right to run for office
Probably the same reasons people with no law enforcement experience think they should run for sheriff.
Joe Meadows had no law enforcement experience and he was the best Sheriff this county ever had until his hormones got in the way. He did more for the agency and county than any of his predecessors and was certainly much more effective than those who followed, including the current sheriff. If you surround yourself with the proper support staff, listen to their advice and know that you are not a one man show, it can be done and done well.
Blue, You sound like Joe Meadows!???
