April C. Ishak succeeds husband, new Judge Paul Ishak, as Havre de Grace city attorney

Havre de Grace's mayor and city council welcomed a new city attorney this week and bid farewell to the old one, while keeping everything in the family, so to speak.

During Tuesday night's city council meeting, April Caso Ishak was appointed city attorney to succeed her husband, Paul, who was appointed last month to a judgeship on the Harford County Circuit Court. The new judge was sworn in during a private ceremony Wednesday.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce our next city attorney, April Ishak," Mayor Bill Martin said, in making public his decision on Paul Ishak's replacement.
