Moyer to seek re-election as alderman

Annapolis Alderman Ellen O. Moyer is expected to announce her campaign for re-election tonight at an Eastport restaurant.

Ms. Moyer, who was appointed to the Ward 8 seat in 1987, is running for her second full term.

She is joining a slate of Democratic candidates concerned about growth, including Annapolis Mayor Alfred A. Hopkins and Craig Purcell, a downtown architect who is challenging Republican Alderman John Hammond for the Ward 1 seat.

"They're all people who are concerned about land-use issues and the future of Annapolis," said Steve Carr, an environmental activist who is a political consultant for all three candidates.

Alderman Moyer's kickoff party will be held at the Wharf restaurant.

Academy appropriation clears House hurdle

A House of Representatives subcommittee approved yesterday a proposed $6.5 million appropriation to upgrade a physical training and meeting center at the Naval Academy's Ricketts Hall.

The funding, approved by the House Appropriations Military Construction Subcommittee, still must receive final approval by the House and Senate.

Congresswoman Helen Delich Bentley, R-2nd, said she requested the appropriation after the Academy's Board of Visitors, citing crowded conditions at the present facility, asked for it.

"This is the first hurdle," Rep. Bentley said in a statement. "The Senate will have its own list of priorities, but I will work to include this program in the Congress' final appropriation."
