Just hours before the deadline to file to run for a seat on Cumberland’s City Council – incumbent councilman Harold Butch Hendershot withdrew his name from consideration. Just a week after filing to seek another term on the council- a seat he has held since 1994- Hendershot withdrew his candidacy. With the decision of fellow incumbent Mary Beth Pirolozzi not to run again- that leaves the city council race for two seats wide open with a primary set for April. Tongiht at 9 p.m. is the deadline to file for council or the Allegany County Board of Education.
