Millsboro’s acting mayor faces challenger in election Saturday

Millsboro residents will go to the polls Saturday to vote for a District 1 councilmember.

Incumbent Tim Hodges, the acting mayor, faces challenger Kimberley Kaan. Following the election, in July, the councilmembers will vote on a new mayor, according to Town Manager Jamie Burke.

Councilman Jim Thoroughgood’s District 2 seat was also up for reelection but was uncontested.

Millsboro residents aged 18 and up can vote from 1 to 7 p.m. at the Millsboro Town Center at 322 Wilson Highway.

Both Hodges and Kaan were sent an identical questionnaire. Their answers are listed below unedited. 

Tim Hodges

Age and occupation: 57, business owner.

What qualifies you for this position? After college, I had a short but successful career in the rapidly growing computer industry before moving to Millsboro. Since then, I have used my engineering education in the construction industry to provide homes and businesses in the area.

Council has accomplished much while I have had the honor to serve.  With a council of seven members, I have been able to use my business management skills to help provide fiscally responsible leadership for the town.  I have helped continue the leadership of past councils, where Millsboro created our Police Department and water and sewer systems in the 1960s.
