Two Candidates Enter Race for Borough Council Seats

There are three seats up for election on Conshohocken’s Borough Council and thus far the slate of candidates are known for two of the seats.  In the 4th Ward, incumbent Anita Barton (D) will be running against Angela Hendrick (R).  Ward was appointed to this seat last year when Republican Carolyn Maye resigned her seat due to a relocation.  Barton owned a craft shop in Conshy for several years and is currently employed by Macy’s.  Hendrick is the owner of Beanie Bounce Party Rental and has served as the president of the Greater Conshohocken Merchants Association.

In the 2nd Ward, incumbent Ike Griffin (D) is being challenged by Caroline Smerecki (R). Griffin works in the construction business and Smerecki is a registered nurse.

No challenger to incumbent Republican Robert Stokley in the 6th Ward has been announced, but I spoke to a local Democrat this morning who said there will be a Democratic Party candidate.

We will do an update once the campaigning starts. We may also do a “Meet the Candidates” night, but last time like three people attended (besides party loyalists), so we are going to have to think about investing the time to put that together.
