  • Incumbent Kenneth W. Stubbs won Harrington’s Ward 5 council seat in the city’s annual election on May 6.
    Stubbs earned 40 votes in the election and candidate Marie Cunningham earned 28 votes during the election. Harrington City Council seats are three-year terms.
    Stubbs, who has served as Harrington City Councilman for District 5 since 2003, said he decided to refile for his council position because he wants to serve the Harrington community.
    “I wasn’t going to run, but I’m glad I did,” Stubbs said after the election. “Sometimes it’s a thankless job, but it’s also rewarding. I’m glad I can be there to support [city employees] for three more years.”
    Stubbs said the major issues at hand for City Council are Harrington’s infrastructure, inflow and infiltration issues and the decision to raise rates, which he said is unfortunate but inevitable.
    “There’s a lot involved for a small town. I hate raising rates, but it’s a fact that taxes and services have got to increase. If a business doesn’t make money, it’ll go broke,” he said. “We worked hard to get where we’re at. It’s just something that had to happen.”
    Cunningham did not respond to the Milford Beacon’s requests for comment.
