Joe Mangini, the city manager of Taneytown, is reported to be one of the top candidates to be the next town manager of Crofton in Anne Arundel County.

Elected leaders making the decision say it will be tough to choose.

"The candidates are very strong," said John Maloney, vice president of the Crofton Civic Association and head of the three-member search committee. "It is a lot tougher than last time."

Names of the nine finalists have not been made public. "I don't think it's fair to anyone to say who they are," said Edwin F. Dosek, the president of the Crofton Civic Association.

The names of three of the finalists for the $38,000-a-year job were learned from sources, and each of the candidates confirmed that he or she had made the final nine.

They are Barbara Swann, community comptroller and acting town manager who has worked for Crofton for 23 years; James B. Golden, a retired military colonel who has the backing of County Council Chairman David G. Boschert; and Mr. Mangini.

Crofton could have its new town manager June 14, the next scheduled board meeting.

Mr. Dosek said he has a list of four or five finalists and plans to talk to each one before proceeding.

Mr. Dosek could either make a recommendation to the board or '' he could have each candidate come in for an interview with all 13 members of the board of directors.
