Three incumbents hold serve in Dagsboro election

DAGSBORO – Dagsboro’s 2019 municipal election Saturday brought no changing of the guard.

Multi-term incumbents held serve by sizeable margins as Theresa Ulrich, Patrick Miller and Brian Baull turned back challenger James Thompson in retaining their seats on the town’s five-member governing body.

Ms. Ulrich led the way with 42 votes, followed by Mr. Miller with 41 and Mr. Baull with 39. Mr. Thompson garnered six votes.

Council terms in Dagsboro are two years.

Town Administrator Cindi Brought said only 45 of the town’s approximate 700 registered voters cast ballots at the Dagsboro Volunteer Fire Department in the four-hour election. It was one of the lowest voter turnouts in recent memory.

Mr. Baull, who has served as mayor three years, and Ms. Ulrich are both in their sixth year on town council. Mr. Miller joined the council in 2015.

Mr. Thompson previously election sought election to council in 2018, falling short against incumbents Norwood Truitt and William Chandler III.
