On Nov. 8, Marylanders will chose between two gubernatorial candidates with contrasting views on public spending and government's roe in our daily lives.
The Democrat, Prince George's County Executive Parris N. Glendening, offers management experience, a hold-the-line approach to taxes and a fervent belief in the importance of property managed government programs.
During 16 years in the Maryland House of Delegates, Ellen R. Sauerbrey has delivered a consistent message of the need to shrink government, cut taxes and get tough on crime, The Baltimore County legislator's campaign is built on a promise to cut personal income taxes by 24 percent over four years.
A Maryland run by a Governor Glendening would probably be quite different from one directed by a Governor Sauerbrey. Last Week, The Sun asked both candidates to set forth the first principles that would guide their administrations.
The interviews were conducted by Sun staff writer C. Fraser Smith.
