Ocean City Municipal Election Is Today

Play associated audio

Mayor Rick Meehan will win his third term in office without facing an opponent. The real battle in today's election is expected to be between four of the seven candidates for city council: incumbents Joe Mitrecic, Lloyd Martin, Margaret Pillas and challenger Brent Ashley.

The mayor has publicly supported Mitrecic and Martin.

"I think it would be a surprise if there's a change in the council. I think that the incumbents have done a good job even though they've disagreed," Meehan says.

If both Ashley and Pillas win seats, many believe that a new voting majority would exist on the council, one that would likely target significant cuts in government spending and employee salaries.

Polls will be open until 7 p.m. tonight.
