A judicial campaign conduct committee rebuked the winner of an Anne Arundel County judicial race this week, saying her Election Day campaign flier was misleading. The Maryland Judicial Campaign Conduct Committee, which has no power to impose penalties for violations of its voluntary standards, cited Alison Asti of Pasadena. She was sworn in as a Circuit Court judge last month in a victory that booted recently appointed Ronald Jarashow off the bench. The judicial campaign that pitted two appointees of Gov. Martin O'Malley against Asti, a Republican, became heated and partisan.

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education will review policy regarding its citizen advisory committee amid the resignation of the countywide group's president and claims by the organization that the board tries to assert more control than necessary. On Oct. 28, Citizen Advisory Committee chairman Tom Frank announced his resignation at a meeting and in a letter on the group's website, saying that when he assumed the role, "I was under the impression that the role of the CAC was to meet with a representative of each school, other interested parents and citizens, and to bring their educational concerns to the School Board and the Superintendent.

After 25 meetings in 30 months, Maryland's Safe-Drilling Advisory Commission can show nearly finalized recommendations for overhauling the regulation of gas drilling by the Maryland Department of Environment and Department of Natural Resources (MDE and DNR). Two other major undertakings, studies of economic impacts and health impacts, have early summer deadlines. Less determined are work-plans for analyzing transportation concerns and drilling risks. Together, these unfinished studies form the backbone of a final report due in about 150 days, on Aug. 1. We propose that there is no way to meet this deadline - for good reasons.

Negotiations among Anne Arundel County officials, private developers and the Navy on redevelopment of the David Taylor Research Center in Annapolis have come to a halt, further fueling speculation that plans to recast the former Navy facility as a high-tech business park may be in jeopardy. With the Navy's transfer of the property to the county nearly a year late, principals in the deal have struggled to schedule meetings and canceled others; rumors abound about the project's financial foundation; and residents express frustration with what they consider the county's unwillingness to share information.

An advisory committee of residents and business leaders is close to wrapping up its final review of a redevelopment agreement that could launch a decade of demolition and construction at the former David Taylor Research Center, where engineers tested new ideas for boats and submarines for close to a century. Members of the committee met with Anne Arundel County officials last week to discuss the final draft of the legal document, which also has been shared with developers Annapolis Partners LLC, the team that plans to build office buildings at the 46-acre site overlooking the Severn.

A Baltimore City-mandated citizens' advisory committee that few people knew existed until this month scrambled to meet Saturday, ahead of a Monday deadline to make recommendations to the Planning Department about a proposed shopping center with a Walmart store in Remington. Although 15 area residents attended the meeting at Corky's Grill near the development site, only two were committee members, so the five-member committee lacked a quorum and can only issue "a report of those present," said John Viles, who chaired the meeting.

In June, the Maryland State Advisory Committee (SAC) to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights held a daylong briefing in Annapolis to gather information about racial disparities in Maryland's criminal justice system. As advocates for reform, we were initially pleased that this important issue would be addressed by the SAC and hoped this would be a major step forward in terms of creating a fairer justice system in Maryland. Unfortunately, our optimism was misplaced. The SAC heard eight hours of testimony from national and state experts, community representatives, scholars, government officials, advocacy group representatives and the public.

There's nothing like an election to bring out promises from politicians to lock 'em up and throw away the key, especially when the talk is of sex offenders who commit unspeakable crimes. But even as Gov. Martin O'Malley prepares to ask the legislature in Annapolis to impose tough new restrictions on sex offenders, some lawmakers are complaining that Maryland has done a less-than-stellar job of enforcing laws on the subject it already has on its books. The Baltimore Sun's Julie Bykowicz reported Sunday that during the last four years the state has never used a law calling for enhanced supervision of convicted sex offenders once they have completed their sentences, and an advisory committee that was supposed to review the state's sex offender laws has never even met. Another law requiring judges to order mental health evaluations of all child sex offenders at the time of their sentencing has been employed just twice.
