On almost every Tuesday night for the past 11 years, Susan B. Heselton could be found patiently sitting through entire County Council meetings --sewing.Now, after an unconventional campaign in which the political novice spent $183 of her own money and put up only a few homemade signs, the 48-year-old seamstress will take office Dec. 3 as the new District A councilwoman. Heselton, a Republican, will be one of five new members joining the seven-member council.She said her upset victory shows that the American political system is alive and well, while political insiders say it shows just how strong the anti-incumbent tide was this election year.

The election for Harford County Council in 1990 saw an anti-incumbent tide that swept away veteran politicians in favor of fresh faces and views.

Republicans captured a solid majority on the council, ending two decades of Democratic domination.No one typified that change better than Susan B. Heselton, who defeated Harford's first county executive for the District A council seat.
