Labor council backs DeJuliis, 5 others

September 04, 1994|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,Sun Staff Writer

The Metropolitan Baltimore Council AFL-CIO Unions, which has more than 8,000 affiliated members in Harford County, has endorsed six Democratic candidates for this month's primary election, union officials said last week.

A two-thirds majority vote of the membership is needed to gain an endorsement, said Ernest R. Grecco, president of the labor council.

In the 2nd Congressional District race, Connie Galiazzo DeJuliis received the endorsement. The first-term delegate from Dundalk declared her candidacy in April, the same week she married union official J. Ronald DeJuliis.

In races for the House of Delegates, the labor council is supporting Nancy Hubers in District 6, incumbent Mary Louise Preis in District 34 and incumbent Donald C. Fry in District 35A.

Mrs. Hubers, of Middle River, faces opposition from six other Baltimore County candidates, including incumbent Michael H. Weir. District 6 includes two precincts in the Fallston area.

Mrs. Preis, of Bel Air, is opposed by five candidates in the Democratic primary.

Mr. Fry, of Bel Air, is opposed by Joseph V. Lutz, of Forest Hill, in the Democratic primary.

The labor council also is endorsing George W. Cunningham for county sheriff and Thomas J. Eser III for County Council District A.

Mr. Cunningham, of Bel Air, received the nod over incumbent Robert E. Comes, of Churchville; former Sheriff Dominick J. Mele, of Fallston; and former Deputy E. Dale Zepp of Bel Air.

Joseph P. Meadows of Bel Air is unopposed in the Republican primary.

Mr. Eser, of Edgewood, is opposed by Habern Dean Freeman of Joppa in the Democratic primary.

Eileen M. Rehrmann, the incumbent county executive received no endorsement because of a lack of support from the building and construction unions, Mr. Grecco said.

Unopposed in the primary, Mrs. Rehrmann will be challenged in the general election by Republican Ronald M. Szczybor of Abingdon, also unopposed in the primary.
