FED­ER­ALS­BURG — Fed­er­als­burg’s mayor and two coun­cilmem­bers took their oaths of of­fice be­fore be­gin­ning their next terms at the town’s meet­ing, Monday, Oct. 2.

Mayor Chuck Plan­ner and coun­cilmem­bers David Morean and Scott Phillips were all re-elected in the town’s elec­tion Sept. 26.

Plan­ner ran un­op­posed for his sec­ond two-year term as mayor, gar­ner­ing 117 votes.

Morean and Phillips re­ceived 79 and 70 votes re­spec­tively, best­ing chal­lengers An­gel Greene’s 44 votes and Roberta But­ler’s 33 votes.

Morean and Phillips will serve four years on the coun­cil. It will be Morean’s sec­ond term. Phillips served once be­fore, from 2003-07. He was ap­pointed to fill a va­cancy in 2015, then ran for and was elected to his sec­ond full term.

Plan­ner read the oath he al­ready took Sept. 28 at the Caro­line County Cir­cuit Court­house, when he was sworn in by Clerk of the Cir­cuit Court Dale Min­ner.

Plan­ner then swore in Morean and Phillips.

All three thanked vot­ers for tak­ing the time dur­ing the elec­tion to cast bal­lots.

“I’d like to thank the com­mu­nity for the vote of con­fi­dence,” Plan­ner said.

“I thank ev­ery­one for the sup­port,” Morean said. “Let’s see if we can’t take some more steps for­ward.”

Phillips also rec­og­nized But­ler and Greene for run­ning for coun­cil.

“I’d like to thank the other two can­di­dates, for putting them­selves out there for the town as well,” Phillips said.

Del. Johnny Mautz, R-37B, at­tended the swear­ing-in.

The coun­cil also elected Morean to serve as pres­i­dent pro tem­pore, and ap­proved sev­eral town-ap­pointed po­si­tions: Town Man­ager Shirley Greene, Clerk-Trea­surer Kristy Mar­shall, Po­lice Chief Don­ald Nagel, Pub­lic Works Di­rec­tor Steve Dy­ott, At­tor­ney Brynja Booth, Build­ing In­spec­tor and Codes En­force­ment Of­fi­cer John Gar­lick and Main Street and Grants Man­ager Ge­orge “Happy” Mayer.
