BLACK POLITICAL FORUM ENDORSEMENTS MADE
The Black Political Forum of Annapolis has endorsed Democrat Theodore J. Sophocleus for county executive.
The forum, a bi-partisan community organization, announced a number of political endorsements Friday. The endorsements were based on a candidates' forum Thursday night and discussions with candidates throughout the campaign.
The forum is supporting the following candidates:
* U.S. Congress: Representative Thomas McMillen, D-4th.
* State Senate, District 30: Sen. Gerald Winegrad, D-Annapolis.
* House of Delegates, District 30: Dr. Aris Allen.
FOR THE RECORD - Robert Pepersack, Republican candidate for Anne Arundel County sheriff, was inadvertently omitted Sunday from a Campaign Notebook item listing the candidates who have been endorsed by the Black Political Forum of Annapolis.
The Anne Arundel County Sun regrets the error.
* State's Attorney: Frank Weathersbee.
* Clerk of the Circuit Court: H. Erle Schafer.
* Register of Wills: Patricia LoCasio.
* Circuit Court judges: Warren Duckett, Lawrence Rushworth.
* Judge of the Orphans Court: Judy Duckett.
The forum also recommends that citizens vote against "Question D," a proposed charter amendment to limit property taxes revenue increases to 4.5 percent or the rate of inflation, whichever is lower.

CADE ENDORSES EVANS' CANDIDACY
Republican Diane R. Evans has been endorsed by Senate Minority Leader John A. Cade, R-Severna Park, for the 5th District County Council seat.
"As a former member of the County Council, I know what it takes to be an effective voice and leader. Diane, because of her extensive community activism coupled with her constituent service background as a legislative aide for the 33rd Legislative District, is indisputably the candidate most qualified to represent our community on the County Council," said Cade, who served on the council from 1965 to 1970.
Evans faces Democrat Linda Gilligan, a former hospital budget director, in Tuesday's general election.
