With more than 100 rounds of council votes, the council remained tied on two candidates.
Pasadena; Councilman John J. Grasso, of Glen Burnie; and Councilman Richard B. "Dick" Ladd, of Broadneck, voted for former state Sen. Michael J. Wagner.
Democrats Jamie Benoit, of Crownsville; Chris Trumbauer, of Annapolis; and Republican Jerry Walker, of Gambrills, supported Marine Reservist Peter Smith.
After a four-and-a-half hour meeting, during which the council listened to five-minute opening statements from each of the 10 candidates and questioned them on various topics, the council elected to resume voting at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
Ten candidates applied for the seat to replace Jones, a Democrat, who began serving five months in federal prison on a single charge of failure of file a tax return.
