Elected officials from around the state attended a fund-raiser recently for Charlie Ross, a District 30 House of Delegates candidate in the Democratic primary.

Among the Democrats who attended the Aug. 27 event were Comptroller Louis Goldstein, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. and state Del. Elijah E. Cummings of Baltimore. District 30 includes Annapolis, Lower Broadneck, Edgewater and Shady Side.

Mr. Ross, an Annapolis lobbyist and former prosecutor, is campaigning for programs to restore the Chesapeake, including oyster seeding, and a anti-crime package that would ensure the punishments for crimes against property do not cost taxpayers more than the crime.

"Charlie is one of the few people who I know that does not see black and does not see white," Delegate Cummings said.

The committee to elect Janet Greenip of Crofton to a House of Delegates seat already is planning a reception Sept. 20 to raise money for her general election campaign.

Ms. Greenip is one of six candidates in the Republican primary for District 33, which includes Odenton, western Severna Park and Davidsonville. Each district elects three delegates. The Republican nominees will face the Democrats in the Nov. 8 general election.

The other GOP candidates are David Almy, Robert Baldwin, Ingvard Bach, Ronald Pullen and Margaret McLean.

Ms. Greenip, a past president of the Maryland Federation of Republican Women, said she is looking forward to "celebrating the success of our primary race and getting down to the serious business of winning the general election."

Her Sept. 20 fund-raiser, an Elizabethan-style dinner, will begin at 5 p.m. at the Maryland Renaissance Festival in Crownsville.

Tickets cost $30. Information: 721-0050.
