May 07, 2008|By Madison Park | Madison Park,Sun reporter

An incumbent, a newcomer and a City Council veteran won Havre de Grace City Council seats yesterday in unofficial results.

The three were the top finishers in a seven-way race. They will be sworn in May 19 to two-year terms.

The only incumbent, James P. Miller, 51, who is a physical science technician for the Army, won his second full term on the council. He received 490 votes.

Bill Martin, 34, a history teacher at Aberdeen Middle School, got 458 votes.

Fred H. Cullum, 58, a retired firefighter and six-term City Council member, received 412 votes. Cullum gave up his council seat last year in an unsuccessful bid for mayor.

In the waterside city that sits in the northeastern end of the county, the issues during this election centered on the future development of a property at Route 155 and Interstate 95, and the city's budget in the current economic downturn.

With 6,783 registered voters, turnout was about 15 percent yesterday at the city's lone polling station, St. Patrick's Church. Absentee and provisional ballots will be counted tomorrow.

Unofficial Results:

Barry Anderson - 356

John P. Corerri - 375

Fred H. Cullum - 412

Joseph G. Gamatoria - 326

Bill Martin - 458

James P. Miller - 490

James W. Walker - 174
