A group of dissident shareholders failed to take control of Glen Burnie Bancorp yesterday in a contentious annual meeting.The dissident group, led by Susan Demyan, a former director of the company, failed in its bid to remove the current board of directors.The vote, which took auditors nearly three hours to tally, was 55 percent for the board and 45 percent against, said F. William Kuethe Jr., president of the banking corporation, the parent of Bank of Glen Burnie."I have to consider it a pyrrhic victory, because the bank itself suffered so much through this," Kuethe said.
