Aberdeen Donnybrook Election For Mayor Turns Into Free-For-All That Almost Guarentees Bennett Re-Election, Anti-Bennett Vote Will Be Divided Among Conservative REPUBLICAN Ruth Elliot And Reactionary/Tea Party Republican Patrick McGrady, Progressive Democrat Posey-Moss Will Probably Attract New Voters And Drain Some Of Bennett Support

September 19, 2015



The Bennett vote over the last three elections averaged 1,013 votes. His opposition (Simmons, Hiob, & McGrady) averaged 800 votes. If the opposition divides in two it cant come close to winning. Elliot has already picked up the early conservative opposition support. And McGrady’s  entry gets to pick  up his usual reactionary Tea Party opposition support. Posey-Moss , who probably had a good chance to win a council seat ,will have difficulty pulling large amounts of Bennett”s progressive and moderate support. She will probably bring in a small amount of new voters .

September 7, 2015


The Republican/Aegis reports that current Aberdeen Mayor Michael Bennett will be challenged by Councilwoman Ruth Elliot in this years town election on November 6th.   Appointed Councilman Steve Smith will seek voter approval to keep his political seat. And council members Ruth Ann Young and Sandra Landbeck are undecided about reelection.

Tea Party Republican Patrick McGrady who lost his bid for mayor four years (2011)  ago in a close race has lost his political fire  since getting married .  McGrady told the Republican Aegis “…I have no definitive plans at this point today.” McGrady also lost  in 2010  when he ran for House of Delegates  in the Maryland General  Assembly. But McGrady did say he was “dissatisfied with the current stock of candidates for mayor and city council, so I may have to run.” There is an open seat and one new challeger.

At the August meetng of the New Harford Democratic Club  it was also announced that Rev. Melvin Taylor would be a candidate for the city council.
