Anne Arundel County Councilman Joshua J. Cohen was elected Tuesday as Annapolis' mayor, promising to bring efficiency and transparency to local government in Maryland's capital city. Cohen, a former city alderman, defeated his nearest competitor, Republican Dave Cordle, an alderman and investigator in the state's attorney's office, by about 240 votes. Chris Fox, a local business owner, garnered about 1,050 votes, in a race where about 9,000 votes were cast.
