OCEAN CITY – Ocean City Council was one member short when Robert “Bobby” Barr resigned to take a seat on the Board of County Commissioners. On the same Aug. 10 evening when Ocean City officials took time to celebrate Barr’s many contributions to the city, the council also took the step of appointing a new member to serve until the November election.

The council appointed former Board of Education member David Winslow to Barr’s Fourth Ward council seat. Winslow, 69, a retired, long-time city resident, worked as a human resources executive in the hospitality industry. Winslow’s selection to the council was unanimous.

In order to maintain a seat on council, Winslow will have to run in the general election in November and, if successful, run again in the municipal election in May 2024. Barr’s unexpired term on council ends June 30, 2024.
