Beidle to run for delegate


Anne Arundel County Councilwoman Pamela G. Beidle, who is prohibited by county law from seeking a third term, has announced that she will run for state delegate in the 32nd District.

A Linthicum Democrat, Beidle, 54, has worked as an insurance agent for 30 years. She said her experience in insurance, banking and health issues makes her "best suited for state government."

The 32nd District covers much of the North County area that Beidle already serves, such as Linthicum and Jessup. It also includes Severn and a piece of Odenton. The district is now represented by delegates Mary Ann Love and Theodore J. Sophocleus, both Democrats, and Terry R. Gilleland Jr., a Republican. All are expected to run again.

Beidle first announced at a fundraiser Wednesday that she would run for a state delegate slot. She is the second Democrat on the County Council to formally declare her political intentions. Bill D. Burlison, an Odenton Democrat, announced over the summer that he's running for the 3rd Congressional District seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin, a Baltimore Democrat.
