City unions back council candidates
Three of the city employees' four labor unions endorsed candidates for City Council Friday in five of Annapolis' eight wards.
The Annapolis Public Employees Council, which represents public works, transportation, utilities, fire and clerical workers, has endorsed three Democratic incumbents -- Sam Gilmer in Ward 3, Carl Snowden in Ward 5 and Ellen Moyer in Ward 8.
The group also endorsed incumbent Dean Johnson, a political independent, in Ward 2 and Rick Staisloff, a Democratic newcomer, in Ward 7.
Last week, the group endorsed former Mayor Dennis Callahan who is running as an independent for his old job. Mr. Callahan was mayor from 1985 to 1989.
