April 30, 1995|By Tanya Jones | Tanya Jones,Sun Staff Writer

Residents of Havre de Grace and Aberdeen will go to the polls Tuesday to elect members to their city councils and, in Havre de Grace, to choose a mayor. Polls in both cities will be open from 7 a.m to 7 p.m.

Registered voters in Havre de Grace can cast their ballots for mayor and three council members in the Havre de Grace High School auditorium, 700 Congress Ave.

Mayor Gunther Hirsch is running for a fourth two-year term. Unlike 1993, when he ran unopposed, this year Dr. Hirsch of the 600 block of Giles St. has two opponents.

City Council President Anna Jones Long, in the middle of her fifth term on the council, is one of his rivals for the mayoral post. Mrs. Long of the 400 block of Alliance St. is a retired administrative officer of the Ballistic Research Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground.

The other challenger, David W. Walden of the 400 block of N. Union Ave., owns the Golden Vein Antique Mall in Havre de Grace and is a retired Social Security executive.

Eight candidates, including two incumbents, are vying for the three council seats.

Incumbents John P. Correri Jr. and James C. Vancherie Jr. are seeking their seventh and fourth terms, respectively.

The six challengers are Jerry I. Ashby of the 200 block of Blue Bill Lane, a master plumber; Frederick H. Cullum of the 100 block of N. Stokes St., a fire battalion chief at Aberdeen Proving Ground; J. Franklin Hawley of the 400 block of N. Union Ave., a public safety dispatcher; Charles A. Maslin of the 100 block of S. Washington St., owner of Ice Dreams and Quackers Comedy Club in Havre de Grace; Kevin M. Racine of the 900 block of Erie St., a supply clerk at Perry Point Medical Center; and G. Jeremiah Ryan of the 200 block of Blue Bill Lane, the vice president of marketing, planning and development at Harford Community College and an adjunct instructor.

In Aberdeen, three candidates are running for two council seats.

Ronald Kupferman, council president and a 17-year council veteran, and Macon L. Tucker, an Aberdeen High School teacher seeking a third term on the council, are challenged by Douglas Wilson, a certified public accountant.

Aberdeen residents can vote at the Aberdeen Senior Citizens Center, 7 Franklin St.
