Taylor elected to Dover City Council

DOVER – Ralph L. Taylor, a former Dover policeman and a member of the Capital School District Board of Education, became the newest member of Dover’s City Council when he was elected to represent constituents of the Second District following the city of Dover’s 2019 Municipal Election on Tuesday.

Mr. Taylor garnered 148 votes, beating out runner-up Albert W. “Bill” Holmes Jr. in a four-candidate scramble for the Second District council seat that was left open when former City Councilman Brian Lewis was elected as Kent County Sheriff last November. Mr. Holmes received 81

Anthony Egipciaco Jr. captured 16 votes while Faye D. White received four.

Voters made their selections between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Tuesday at the Dover First Seventh-day Adventist Church at 647 Wyoming Avenue in Dover.

No opponents filed before the deadline to run against Mayor Robin R. Christiansen, Matt Lindell (First District), Scott Cole (Third District) or Roy Sudler Jr. (Fourth District), allowing all of them to keep their positions in the city’s government for four more years.
