kirbyIn a nearly two hour meeting last night, the Annapolis Board of Elections decided to dismiss the challenges levied against sitting Alderman Kenny Kirby’s candidacy clearing the way for the Alderman to seek a second term in office.

Several challenges were presented to the Board of Elections including his residency and his failure to abide by rules surrounding the filing of campaign finance reports.

The Board convened in public session last night at 7:00pm and then went into an private session to discuss the matter with the City Attorney. They re-convened a public session where the public was allowed to testify on the matter.  Kirby was represented by local attorney Eric Lipsetts who also represented the Alderman when he was found to be living illegally in a HACA property last year.

Kirby will run unopposed in the primary next month and will face Independent Steven Conn in the general election in November.
