Cape Gazette Cot00 will, take seat on Milton council Two candidates declare for two open seats By Nick Roth The field for the Milton mu- nicipal election is set, and the on- ly race in March will be for the seat with the gavel. Only two candidates filed to run for two open seats on town council. John Collier and Michael Cot6 will assume their seats at the April meeting, pend- ing a background check by the Board of Elections. They will re- place Councilman Norman Lester and Vice Mayor Leah Betts, who each chose not to run for another term. Cot6 was the final candidate to throw his hat in the ring. Cot6 worked as an accountant for a Fortune 500 company; he said he was motivated to run for council when he heard Lester likely would not seek another term. "I haven't been in CPA practice as long as Norman, but ... I think it's important for somebody in that body to have that back- ground," he said. Cot6 serves on the finance committee and Cannery Village ad hoc committee. He moved to Mil- ton about a year-and-a- half ago from Pottsville, Pa., home of the Michael Cot6 Yuengling brewery. As a resident of Cannery Village, Cot6 still lives next to a brewery: Dog- fish Head is his current neighbor. Cot6, 64, is retired, but said he can still do work if it arrives through normal channels. "I only need the computer, a phone and access to an airport," he said. When he joins council in April, Cot6 said, one of his main focuses will be to continue the work started by Lester to clean up the town's books and imple- ment better accounting practices and controls. "I probably have a better un- derstanding of what Norman has been trying to do," he said. "I Grinches Continued from page 14 "It's really sad with everything that's going on," he said. "It's dis- heartening that kids are doing this during Christmas." Delaware State Police did not have further information on the vandalism. Citrano said vandals targeted one other neighbor in a neighborhood full of decorated homes, leading him to believe the perpetrators are connected to a nearby summer home. Citra- no said he and his neighbor have complained about loud parties at the summer home in the past; the damage appears to be retri- bution for the complaints. "I even tried leaving the lights on all night, thinking that would deter them," Citrano said. "Things were busted up despite that." Citrano was prepared this time, though. He installed new peppermint lights, replacing the ones stolen along the driveway, and quickly filled the gap of lights left empty along the road- way. "I hope these last this time," he said. fBEGINNER'S WATERCOLOR STARTING in January at Fleur-de-Lis Studio in Lewes NO DRA WING OR PMNTING SKILLS REQUIRED Wednesday Evening Classes Start January 16th, 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm Thursday Morning Classes start January 17th 9:30 am - 12:00 pm Join Elizabeth Collard as she teaches these 8-week comprehensive courses and IARN ALL TIlE BASICS: various watercolor techniques, all aboul special materials and how to use them. color theory, design, compositional elements, and everything else you need to know to be able to paint watercolors successfully.

NEWS think they've made some good progress in finding some sources of difficulties and implementing some systems and controls to improve the process. I think there's still more to do" He said he'd also like to try to improve the budget process. "I think the budget process the FRIDAY, JANUARY 4 - MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013 17 last two years has been more contentious than it should be," he said. In his corporate life, Cot6 was in charge of consolidating the budgets for the different divi- sions of his company. Cot6 bought his home in Can- nery Village in 2008 and serves as the only property owner on the board of dire'ctors of the Can- nery Village Community Associ- ation.
