Havre de Grace incumbents re-elected


Three Havre de Grace Council incumbents retained their seats in Tuesday's city election.

Philip G. Angelini Jr., Joseph W. Kochenderfer and Anna M. Long were the top vote-getters for the three available council seats. They had been challenged by political newcomer Edward DiMauro II.

Long, 66, received 564 votes to win her fifth two-year term. She was followed by Kochenderfer with 483 votes and Angelini with 441.

Kochenderfer, 57, will enter his second term; Angelini, 50, will enter his fifth term.

DiMauro, a 24-year-old restaurant owner seeking his first public office, received 411 votes.

The three incumbents said before the election that seeking new sources of revenue for the city would be their top priority in the next term.

The incumbents said in their campaigns that the city should consider annexing land to provide for development and more property for taxation; increasing fees for public services; and reducing some government programs to avoid a fiscal crisis.

The city's proposed 1992-93 budget is $3.2 million, a 3.1 percent increase over the present budget.

The proposed budget, scheduled for council consideration May 18, has about $50,000 less in county and state funding than the current budget.
