The Town Council will hold its next meeting at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 28 in the Leland Center Social Hall, 4301 Willow Lane.


One-term incumbent Gary Hartz was reelected to the Poolesville Town Commission last week and real estate agent Paul Edward Kuhlman won the other open seat on the five-member panel.

Hartz received 601 votes, while Kuhlman netted 383 votes. William Arthur Potts Sr. was defeated in the balloting, receiving 369 votes.

Also in the Nov. 6 election, a proposal that would have allowed the commissioners to fill vacancies on their panel was soundly defeated. Voters decided, by a margin of 524 to 236, that the town must continue to hold special elections to fill any mid-term vacancies.

Poolesville holds staggered elections for its panel of commissioners, who are unpaid. The remaining three seats will be up for election in 1992.


Three-term Mayor Stephen J. Del Giudice, elected to the Prince George's County Council last week, made political history as the first person in Maryland voted into state or county office as a write-in candidate.

Del Giudice, a Democrat, handily defeated opponents Anthony J. Cicoria, who was convicted last month of stealing money from his campaign and lying on his income tax forms, and Republican J. Lee Ball, whose candidacy had been disavowed by his party.

Unsuccessful in the primary for the District 2 council seat, Del Giudice decided less than a week before the Nov. 6 election to again seek the post through a write-in campaign. His bid was strengthened by Democratic Party support and the endorsement of Cicoria, who was unable to remove his own name from the ballot at the last minute.
