The Greater Baltimore Sierra Club disagrees with the Baltimore Sun's endorsement of Todd Huff over Ben Sutley for Baltimore County's 3rd District council seat ( "Baltimore County endorsements," Oct. 27). The Sierra Club was proud to endorse outgoing Councilman T. Bryan McIntire for his tireless and successful land preservation accomplishments. However, after reaching out to both candidates for consideration of a general election endorsement, only Mr. Sutley responded, thereby demonstrating that he understands the importance of, and will enthusiastically work for, the preservation of northern Baltimore County's unique environmental values.

The shape of Maryland's 3rd Congressional District has been compared to everything from a Rorschach Test inkblot to a crime-scene blood spatter to a broken-winged pterodactyl, but according to one theory its odd dimensions could have a basis in religion as well as politics. Howard L. Gorrell, a Republican activist who challenged the recently redrawn redistricting map in court, said his analysis supports a theory that the 3rd district's lines were drawn in part to pack as many Jews as possible into the turf of U.S. Rep. John Sarbanes, a Democrat.

The outcome of the councilmanic elections in Baltimore's 3rd District could well prove to be the acid test of the redistricting plan approved by the City Council earlier this year.Before redistricting, blacks comprised about 44 percent of the district's residents. Yet the 3rd had never elected a black council member. By increasing the proportion of blacks to 60 percent, the authors of the plan clearly hoped to increase the likelihood of electing at least one black member from the district.

Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens has purchased a 1,100-square-foot house in the 3rd Congressional District, a move that would allow her to claim residency there should she mount a campaign for Congress this fall. Owens, who owns county homes in two other congressional districts, has been signaling that she plans to join the field vying for the 3rd District congressional seat now held by Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin, who is running for the U.S. Senate. In a telephone interview yesterday, Owens confirmed that she and her husband, attorney David Sheehan, purchased a two-story home on Crownsville Road because of its location in the 3rd District, in which Anne Arundel residents are a third of the population.

The conservative communities of northern Baltimore County have been served by only one Republican on the County Council since district representation became the law in 1974.This year, the GOP is hoping that T. Bryan McIntire, its 3rd District nominee, can ride the wave of local sentiment for Republican gubernatorial candidate Ellen R. Sauerbrey, a popular north county delegate.Democratic nominee I. William Chase concedes that Mrs. Sauerbrey could be a factor, but he said the tradition of crossover voting in the district will favor him -- and not his GOP opponent.

For all they have in common, it would seem the candidates for the 3rd District County Council seat would get along better than they do. But this has been one of the hardest-fought -- some would say nastiest -- campaigns for the council.Republican incumbent Carl G. "Dutch" Holland has been critical of alleged zoning violations at his opponent's Pasadena salvage yard.Thomas Redmond, the Democratic challenger, has belittled Mr. Holland's record, arguing that the capital projects the councilman claimed to have brought to his district were started under his Democratic predecessor, Edward C. "Buddy" Ahern.

Councilman T. Bryan McIntire, who has represented the northern expanses of Baltimore County for 16 years and would like one more term, acknowledges facing the toughest challenge of his career. Five fellow Republicans are running against him in the County Council primary Sept. 14, and for the first time since 1994, the outcome of the primary won't mean the end of the campaign for the seat. Democrat Ben Sutley will oppose the Republican nominee in the general election. "They all realize that as I have stated, I will not run again after this term," said McIntire, 80, a retired attorney.

Anyone wishing to gain insight into the 2010 election season should pay special attention to Baltimore County. Baltimore County is a bellwether for three reasons. First, like Maryland, Democrats enjoy a better than 2 to 1 advantage in voter registration. Second, Republicans run competitively at the local, legislative and congressional levels. Third, the proper alignment of circumstances occasionally produces surprising results. In 1990, voter unhappiness toward Democratic County Executive Dennis Rasmussen resulted in the election of Roger Hayden, the first Republican to hold that position since Spiro Agnew, as well as the election of three GOP councilmen.

In my over 14 years serving on the Baltimore City Council, this is the first time I have availed myself of the opportunity to respond to a Sun editorial ("Dixon should step aside," Dec. 13). I feel very strongly that the events of the last week show that the mayor has her talented team at all levels of government firmly in control. It turns out that the mayor's "staying focused" message is more than just a paper statement. On Friday, The Sun reported that Baltimore public works crews replaced an eight-foot section of a large water main less than 24 hours after a major break flooded a section of Argonne Drive that bordered my district.

Democrat John P. Sarbanes - the son of retiring U.S. Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes - won the open 3rd Congressional District seat last night, apparently leaving Maryland's congressional delegation unchanged, with six Democrats and two Republicans. Sarbanes, a Towson attorney and political novice, beat Republican John White, an Annapolis businessman, who was also making his first run for public office, according to preliminary results. Sarbanes also beat Charles Curtis McPeek, the Libertarian candidate.

In many ways, the two leading candidates to fill Benjamin L. Cardin's 3rd District congressional seat couldn't be more different. John P. Sarbanes, the Ivy League son of the well regarded U.S. senator, was literally reared in the milieu of politics from the age of 8, when his father was first elected to Congress. Sarbanes, a Democrat, has raised more than $1 million, winning a competitive eight-way primary that propelled him into November's general election. John White, a self-made businessman, didn't even register to vote until several years ago. He was a Democrat at first but two years later switched to the Republican Party.

With registered Democrats outnumbering Republicans nearly 2-1, and strong backing from a popular incumbent, Democrat Jen Terrasa enjoys some enviable advantages in her quest to succeed Guy Guzzone on the Howard County Council. But Terrasa, 37, a lawyer without any political experience, isn't overconfident. "It's a moderate district with a highly intelligent population. I don't think they're just going to vote party line," Terrasa said. Republican Donna Thewes, 47, another first-time candidate, is betting on that.

In the end, maybe the name was the thing. And so John P. Sarbanes clinched a victory yesterday, winning the 3rd Congressional District Democratic primary with a comfortable 6-percentage-point margin, a crucial step in his quest to continue the Sarbanes legacy. The son of retiring U.S. Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes shrugged when asked if he could have won with a different last name. "Who knows?" said Sarbanes, 44, of Towson. "We'll never know." Sarbanes captured 32 percent of the vote, with 95 percent of the district's precincts reporting unofficial results.

John P. Sarbanes, an attorney and political novice, held a narrow lead last night in the highly contested race for the 3rd District congressional seat, as problems at polling sites delayed results. Sarbanes, the son of retiring U.S. Sen Paul S. Sarbanes, was tightly grouped with former Baltimore Health Commissioner Peter L. Beilenson and state Sen. Paula C. Hollinger, the only elected official among the eight Democrats vying for the nomination. Voters and political observers said Sarbanes' name gave him a tremendous edge in a race in which Democrats with similar stances struggled to distinguish themselves in policy.
