Upcoming elections
Crumm Mountains next election is January 2003.  Unlike most other municipalities and governing entities, Crumm Mountain holds it's city election in the beginning of the year.*  After a candidate is elected in the winter, they are inaugerated in the spring.   They have from March 4th to June 26th and then from September 8th to December 4th to pass a city budget, confirm mayoral appointees, review proposed city ordinances, provide for the maintanence of the cities infrastructure.   Sewage, water lines, electricity, etc.   Primary Day for both parties is October 29th

*Why does Crumm Mountain do this?   Just to be different I guess.
