Baltimore's 5th District, in the city's northwest quadrant, has undergone a process of almost continuous transformation over the past three decades, but its politics have never quite managed to keep up with the changes. By the time the 5th elected its first black City Council member in 1979, blacks had comprised half the population for nearly a decade. Still, it took nearly another decade for the 5th to elect a second black council member.The three incumbents -- Vera P. Hall, Iris G. Reeves and Rochelle "Rikki" Spector -- accurately reflect the present racial makeup of the district and the black-Jewish coalition that is the district's main political force.

Over the past several years, Baltimore County has made steady progress as it seeks to air condition all its public schools. Despite limited funding, the county is on track to reduce the number of schools lacking air conditioning from 54 percent in 2010 to 36 percent within two years. Unfortunately, that progress is not shared uniformly throughout Baltimore County. There is a significant disparity between the western, northern and eastern parts of the county. Looking at schools by County Council district, after the current round of air conditioning, the number of non-air conditioned schools will stand at 28 percent in the 1st District (Catonsville)

In 1990, he finished last in a three- way Republican primary, behind incumbent Richard C. Matthews of Hampstead and challenger Joseph H. Mettle of Eldersburg.Mr. Matthews and Mr. Mettle, who finished last in the 1990 general election, have said they will run again in 1994.Mr. Joyce, 45, said he believes he will have a better chance to be elected next year because Carroll will have a new, third seat in the 5th District as a result of redistricting in 1991.

As a result of redistricting, Maryland's 5th Legislative District no longer includes a sliver of Baltimore County. The district now falls entirely within Carroll County, and the conservative orientation of the electoral politics reflects that change.Running unopposed for the Republican nomination for the Senate is incumbent first-termer Larry E. Haines. A conservative, Mr. Haines worked the past four years to increase penalties for a variety of criminal activities. He also labored for measures such as exempting church-run nursery schools from state regulations and allowing parents to spank children without running afoul of the state's child abuse statutes.

NANJEMOY -- He bounds to the microphone with practiced ease, jokes with the assembled faithful, bows to local officials and then tosses the incumbent's trump card: $500,000 in federal funds to turn this faded elementary school into a community center.Some might call this "pork," Rep. Steny H. Hoyer tells the audience in this Charles County hamlet. But he prefers to call it "people."Whatever it is, it sounds good to Wade Hampton, a 39-year-old farmer and builder who listened to the Prince George's County Democrat and plans to support him. "That's what it's all about," Mr. Hampton says, "to get as much appropriations in the area as you can."

As a resident of the 5th Councilmanic District and someone who has been involved in the political world for at least 30 years, I am appalled at The Baltimore Sun article by Julie Scharper entitled "A moldy situation at harbor condos" (Nov. 8). I totally agree with Joseph Krome's letter that this was "incoherent dribble" and had nothing to do with mold at Harborview but was a character assassination of Councilwoman Rikki Spector who is not only one of the most dedicated elected officials to represent the 5th District but also is totally committed to the entire City of Baltimore.

Baltimore County's 5th Council District includes some bustling suburban commercial areas, such as Perry Hall, but the two candidates seeking to replace Councilman Vince Gardina said they are concerned about growth prospects in older neighborhoods, including the county seat of Towson. Both Democrat Mike Ertel, 44, and Republican David Marks, 36, have led community organizations — for Ertel, the Greater Towson Council of Community Associations and for Marks, the Perry Hall Improvement Association.

Three Democrats are vying for a shot at the District 5 seat on the Baltimore County Council, all pledging to boost economic development in the growing suburban area. Longtime Councilman Vince Gardina announced last fall that he would not run for re-election after serving an unprecedented five terms. Gardina's exit has opened the door for Mike Ertel and Gordon Harden from Towson, and Bill Paulshock from Perry Hall. Republican David Marks, also from Perry Hall, is running unopposed for his nomination.

A nyone 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.
