Residents Offer Their Thoughts on Election Day
Several Bel Air residents weighed in Tuesday on major issues that drove their votes.
Edwin Weaver, a 60-year resident of Bel Air, thinks the major issue of this election is the purchase of the old BB&T Bank building on Main Street. He said the purchase was one he is "OK" with.
For Angelo Monico, the candidates' perspective on property taxes was the issue driving his vote. Monico, who has lived in town for two decades, said Terence Hanley and Greg Adolph addressed those issues to his satisfaction.
Joe Rehrmann, a 46-year resident of Bel Air, said he always votes in the town election and for him, it's about town management and who can do that job best.
"I think traffic is the biggest issue," resident Laurie Wallis said.
She said she appreciated the candidates focusing on community issues and their desire to keep Bel Air's small town atmosphere.
Wallis said she was torn between several candidates and while she believed some of the incumbents had done a fine job, she also liked the idea of bringing fresh faces to the board.
"I went for a balance of old and new," Wallis said.
