Today at 5 p.m. was the deadline to file to run for commissioner in Dewey Beach.
Only four candidates filed to run for the three soon-to-be-open commissioner seats. Commissioners Paul Bauer and Dale Cooke along with Mayor TJ Redefer will be challenged by newcomer Philip Rowe.
Rowe faces some tough competition running against the three incumbents.
Comm. Cooke said he is running independently of any other candidate while Mayor Redefer and Comm. Bauer are running as a team.
Here are the candidate bios/fliers:
Election day in Dewey Beach is Saturday, September 21, 2019. Please see the town’s website for info on absentee voting.
The Dewey Beach Civic League is hosting the annual candidate forum on Saturday, August 31, at 5 p.m. at the Dewey Beach Lions Club.
