All three incumbents on the Perryville town board are running for re-election in May and will face challenges from at least two town residents, one who is no stranger to the town electorate.

Mayor Jim Eberhardt and Commissioners Barbara Brown and Alan Fox, whose terms expire in May, have filed for candidacy and are seeking re-election.

Brian Williams and George Hornbarger have also filed for commissioner.

Hornbarger ran in the 2009 Perryville election, but lost to Commissioner Gary Tennis, who was seeking re-election, by four votes.

Perryville’s election will be May 11. The candidate filing period is March 17 to April 12.

Commissioners serve two-year terms in Perryville, as does the mayor. The terms of two other council members, Tennis and Michelle Linkey, will expire in May 2011.

Eberhardt said he plans to run for his fourth term as mayor. Brown said she plans to run for her fifth term as commissioner, but her decision is pending the status of her health come election time. Fox said he plans to seek his second term as a commissioner.

Williams, 43, of Silver King Court, has lived in Perryville his entire life and is ready to get involved with the town board.

“There are some things I don’t agree with in town, so instead of sitting on the sidelines and complaining, I am going to step up and doing something about it,” Williams said Tuesday.

Williams would not elaborate on the things he does not agree with in Perryville.

Williams has served in the Community Fire Department of Perryville for more than 24 years and also served as a paramedic for 15 years.

“I am into serving the community,” he said.

Hornbarger, 56, has worked for Cecil County as a water and wastewater operator and 911 operator, and has also been a member of the Community Fire Company of Perryville since 1987.

“There are some priorities I would like to see changed, and I would also like to see the casinos go in without a hitch, but also not cause any problems with Perryville residents,” he said.

Hornbarger, who has lived in or around Perryville since the 1950s, said the town could also use some work when it comes to employee training and safety.

Eberhardt, 65, was elected mayor of Perryville in 2004 in an uncontested race, and said he would like to see a few projects finished as mayor.

Brown, 64, was first elected in 2002, and said she is trying to get her health back to 100 percent after suffering a broken leg, ankle and foot in October, when she fell off a ladder.

Her decision to run will be based on her health come election time.

Fox, 64, was elected in 2008, and will be seeking re-election for his second term.

“I’ve enjoyed it, and I think the town is basically going in a pretty good direction,” he said, adding that the last two years have been an education process.

Fox said he is still involved with getting the wastewater plant online, and would like to see that through.

Fox said he has also started a revitalization effort to bring commercial and residential life to the old part of Perryville, also know as the downtown area.

If Fox is re-elected, he said he would like the revitalization project to be his focus.
