David Rosen files for Town Council
North Duke Street resident David Rosen filed to run for Town Council earlier today. Rosen is currently a member of the Shepherdstown Planning Commission.
“I want to make sure that the town is taken care of and the town runs correctly,” said Rosen by phone on Monday morning.
Rosen says he has lived in Shepherdstown for a little over two years. Prior to that he lived in Harpers Ferry.
Rosen is also a graphic designer, photographer and part owner of the Plum jewelry store on West German Street. Rosen also maintains a semi-regularly updated blog called Creating Itchy (link in sidebar) where he writes about art and graphic design.
On his campaign, Rosen says he plans on pounding the pavement to drum up support. “I’m just going to be talking to my neighbors, it’s easy for me to get around and talk to my neighbors.
All the Town Council seats are at-large, filled by the five Town Council candidates who receive the most votes in the election.
Those interested in running for municipal elected office have until 5 p.m. this Friday to register with the town clerk.
