City Council seats up for grabs in Dover municipal election

Apr 17, 2017

Voters in Dover head to the polls Tuesday for the state capital’s municipal election.

There are three contested City Council races to be decided.

In the First District, three candidates, Will Garfunkel, Matthew Lindell and Tanner Polce, are vying to replace retiring City Councilman James Hutchison. 

That district will also see a special election next month to fill the seat vacated by James Hosfelt, who won a special election last month to fill a seat on Kent County Lev Court.

In the Second District, incumbent William Hare faces a challenge from James Galvin.

And in the Third District, incumbent Fred Neil attempts to fend off two challengers seeking to unseat him.  Lance Moffa and Jane Rolfes are running against Neil.

At-Large councilman Timothy Slavin and Fourth District councilman David Anderson are running unopposed and will remain on Dover City Council for another four years.

Polls are open from 7 am until 8 pm. 

First District voters can cast their ballots at The Elks Lodge #1903 located at 200 Saulsbury Road.

The Second District's polling place is the Seventh Day Adventist Church at 647 Wyoming Ave.

Voters in the Third District should go to St. Andrew's Lutheran Church at 425 North Dupont Highway.
