Havre de Grace election has three candidates so far

Either a lot of people in Havre de Grace are waiting until the last minute, or the city's residents will have slim pickings in the election for new city council members and a mayor this spring.

So far, only three people have filed to run in the race, two for council and one for mayor.

No one has yet challenged Mayor Wayne Dougherty in his bid for the top elected office in Havre de Grace.

Besides the mayor's seat, those of Barbara Wagner, John Correri and Randoph Craig are up for election this year.

Meanwhile, Thomas Barnes, of Eugene Drive, filed to run on March 6, city hall confirmed Wednesday.

The election will take place May 7, and Barnes would be joining Dougherty and Fred Cullum, a longtime city councilman who lost in the election last year, on the ballot.

Last year, the election got seven candidates for three council seats, and two newcomers, Joe Smith and David Glenn, beat out Jim Miller and Fred Cullum for a seat on the dais.

Residents older than 25 years of age have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to file to run. It costs $100 to file to run for mayor and $50 to run for city council.
