June 14th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Although the filing deadline isn’t until February and the primary not until June, the first candidate for public office locally is now on the books as local businessman George Merling has filed to run for mayor of Cumberland. Merling, a longtime business owner in the area, currently is a partner in the proposed medical marijuana dispensary that would be located at his building- the former Moose Lodge on Beall Street. He was in the news back in 2013 when he butted heads with city and state officials over a proposal to open a recreational park along South Johnson Street.
