Annapolis housing officials have confirmed that city Alderman Kenneth A. Kirby is not an approved tenant or visitor of a city-owned apartment where he was found during a drug raid earlier this month. Kirby faced questions about his residency after the Jan. 5 raid of two apartments, with housing officials investigating whether he was staying there in violation of a lease agreement. Police have said Kirby is not accused of any wrongdoing in connection with the drug raid. Housing Authority chief operating officer Joseph Johnson told The Capital in Annapolis that the agency's paperwork does not list Kirby as a tenant or visitor of the city-owned apartment in the Harbour House community.

Annapolis Mayor Mike Pantelides and members of the new city council are still figuring out which issues to attack now that they're in office. But one thing is clear: Don't expect a proposal to weaken the mayor's power. Alderman Ross Arnett told reporters Thursday that he won't introduce legislation that he floated last month that would weaken the mayor's power, making him little more than the chairman of the council, and putting more authority in the hands of the city manager. Arnett's proposal became public shortly after the November election and led to a backlash against the alderman, especially because he is a Democrat and the new mayor is a Republican.

Mike Pantelides can't go anywhere these days without being stopped. Walking down Main Street to a meeting, he meets people offering ideas. At a post-workout stop at the drug store, someone wants to talk to him. In the Market House, a merchant offers a fresh fruit smoothie - on the house. That's what comes with being mayor of Annapolis, population 38,620. It's a city small enough that residents get to know their politicians on a first-name basis, and they aren't shy about voicing concerns.

A group of Annapolis residents is launching an effort to recall one of the city's aldermen after he floated the idea of stripping the mayor of some powers. The recall petition targets Alderman Ross Arnett, who last week won re-election as a Democrat representing the Eastport neighborhood of Annapolis. Arnett's proposal to convert the capital city's form of government to one that treats the mayor more as a member of the City Council made national news, and he said Wednesday that it also triggered so many negative phone calls that he had to disconnect his home phone.

Annapolis Alderman Ross Arnett insists the City Council's decision to take another look at making the mayor's job a more ceremonial role has nothing to do with party politics. But if the Democrat-majority council acts to remove the mayor's power, the timing will coincide with the election of Annapolis' first Republican mayor in nearly two decades, Mike Pantelides, who defeated the incumbent Democrat, Mayor Josh Cohen, last week. "I think that's the right system," he said of the council-manager style of government being considered.

To win a seat on the Annapolis city council, candidates say they've relied on tried-and-true shoe-leather politics. Eight men running for four seats have been spending days knocking on doors, trying to reach the estimated 8,000 voters who will cast ballots in Tuesday's city elections. "It's a lot of doors," said Kurt Riegel, a Democrat who is trying to unseat Republican Alderman Fred Paone in Ward 2. He jokes that behind half the doors "is a small and angry dog that wants to kill me. " Paone's been knocking, too: "I'm using everything possible to make sure people know there's an election and to get out the vote.

Four men and one woman are vying for perhaps the trickiest job in Annapolis: mayor. The state's capital has been buzzing in recent months over proposals to adopt a new plan to guide future development at City Dock and to rezone key waterfront properties downtown. Meanwhile, residents have raised concerns about a major development proposed for the edge of town, and the city is still recovering from the economic downturn. “Much of these last four years, I've been trying to fix a lot of things that weren't right,” said Mayor Josh Cohen, a Democrat who is seeking re-election.

Kirby, a Democrat, has had repeated controversy over where he lives , dating to early 2012, when Kirby was found staying at a public housing apartment that police searched as part of a drug investigation. Kirby was not accused of any criminal wrongdoing, but the incident raised questions about his residency, because the apartment where he was staying was not his official address.

"I want to improve communication between the people and City Hall. Our current leadership is out of touch with the needs of Ward 3." If elected, Bowling, a Republican, said he would "work to improve communication between our neighborhoods and our law enforcement professionals" and "advocate for accountability and transparency in government."
