Milton, Del., Monday, March 9, 1986:
W. GRAHAM DILL won a fourth term as mayor here in what he interpreted as evidence that "the people are satisfied with our administration".
Mrs. ROSE KUCZAWA, leader of a campaign to enforce local health and safety regulations and longtime critic of Mayor Dill, ran for a spot on the council but was defeated, receiving only 115 votes. Former councilman, EVERETT ARGO, a supporter of Mrs Kuczawa, resigned from the council in order to oppose Dill for the mayoralty, but he lost, receiving only 102 votes as compared to 175 for Dill.
Dill had asked the people of Milton to decide if he, or Mrs Kuczawa, was right in their approach to the clean up drives. He termed Saturdays election a clear victory, but Mrs. Kuczawa said after the election that she has no intention to retreat from her stand against junk cars along the Broadkill River and alleged substandard housing. With Dill elected mayor, the four open councl seats went to LESTER E. CLENDANIEL, 250 votes, L. A. DARBY, 236 votes, NORMAN S. LAWSON, 236, and WILLIAM D. PEPPER, 235. Lawson, Darby and Pepper are incumbents.
