Vienna residents will go the polls Tuesday to fill three seats on the seven-member City Council. The only polling place, the Vienna Community Center, 120 Cherry St. SE, will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Three candidates, all incumbents, have filed for the at-large posts, while high school senior Alan K. Healy has notified election officials that he intends to run as a write-in candidate. All four are vying for two-year terms on the council.
The three incumbents are Donald Upchurch, who is seeking his fourth council term; Douglas A. Brook, who is seeking his second term, and Raymond Hicks, who is seeking a fifth term.
All three have said that if reelected they will continue to emphasize a strong, conservative fiscal policy, maintenance of town services and limited growth of downtown Vienna.
Healy, an 18-year-old student at Madison High School, is seeking his first public or school office. If elected, he said he would focus on the needs of his teen-aged constituency. The present council, he said, "doesn't deal a lot with teen-agers. I would like to get a place where teen-agers can go on weekends."
Healy expects to enter George Mason University in the fall, where he plans to study political science.
