Former Bel Air Commissioner Terence Hanley was scheduled to appear in Harford County Circuit Court at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in a legal dispute with Harford Bank over a $570,000 loan. The appearance has been postponed and a new court date has not been set.

The two-term Republican commissioner finished fifth in his attempt to win one of the three open seats on the Board of Commissioners.
Terence Hanley, the Bel Air commissioner facing two high-profile legal issues that emerged in recent weeks, was defeated in Tuesday's election. The two-term Republican commissioner who lost his bid for another four-year term was dogged throughout the campaign by revelations of a theft charge in Cecil County and an allegation of defaulting on a Harford Bank loan of $600,000.

Several Bel Air residents weighed in Tuesday on major issues that drove their votes.
While one Bel Air resident gave her thoughts on camera, several others told Patch what this Bel Air municipal election is about for them. Edwin Weaver, a 60-year resident of Bel Air, thinks the major issue of this election is the purchase of the old BB&T Bank building on Main Street. He said the purchase was one he is "OK" with. For Angelo Monico, the candidates' perspective on property taxes was the issue driving his vote. Monico, who has lived in town for two decades, said Terence Hanley and Greg Adolph addressed those issues to his satisfaction.
