Heated Race Could Mean More Ocean City Voters On Tuesday

Historically, whenever the mayor of Ocean City runs uncontested for re-election, voter turnout is anemic at best, but tomorrow's election could be a bit different.

The battle for the three open council seats has gotten quite heated in the last few weeks, as one candidate was arrested for a DUI, while another had his residency questioned, and a sitting member of the council made an unprecedented written endorsement of a non-incumbent candidate and a public slam on the mayor and two of the other candidates running for re-election.

There are seven candidates, but analysts say it will be a four-way race between incumbents Joe Mitrecic, Lloyd Martin, Margaret Pillas and newcomer Brent Ashley.
