Dels. Carmen Amedori and Nancy R. Stocksdale have filed for re-election, but redistricting has made the incumbents, who have been working together the past four years, opponents. Redistricting has trimmed one at-large seat from Carroll and forced its three incumbent delegates - including Joseph M. Getty, who is considered a candidate but has yet to file - to compete for the two available seats. Typically, incumbents win re-election fairly easily, no matter how crowded the field. Amedori and Stocksdale are Westminster residents, and Getty lives in Manchester and has a law office in Hampstead.

House Bill 398, which would require Maryland hospitals to offer pregnant mothers the option of donating umbilical tissue from their newborns to medical research, was considered by its sponsor a "no-brainer." It could potentially save the state millions down the road in Medicaid payments while also saving lives, according to Del. Carmen Amedori, a Republican who represents Baltimore and Carroll counties. But it comes on the heels of the first successful cloning of human embryos in South Korea, and in the midst of a national debate on legislation to ban human cloning, and some say the legislation falls far short of more radical laws medical advocacy groups are lobbying for across the country.

Carmen Amedori has resigned as chairwoman of the Carroll County Charter Board, saying that the panel, which has nearly finished its task, has become a "political tool."Amedori called her action a protest. In a letter to Commissioner Donald I. Dell on Monday, she said that "unified efforts by the board are no longer the goal and the decisions made are purely self-serving to achieve political agendas."After eight months of meetings and several public hearings, the nine-member board has written a document which could change county government from three commissioners to an executive and county council.

Del. Joseph M. Getty, a Manchester Republican, said yesterday he will honor a 1994 campaign promise and not seek a third term in the House of Delegates - a decision that could enhance his two colleagues' chances for re-election. He imposed his two-term limit and, despite strong pressure from supporters, Getty said yesterday, "I am sticking by my promise." Recently adopted redistricting would have forced Carroll's three incumbents - Getty, Nancy R. Stocksdale and Carmen Amedori - to vie for two seats.

Carmen Amedori knows that her mouth makes her a target. Quick with a barb, the Republican candidate for state delegate has during the past four years called her Democratic foes traitors, crooks, liars and conspirators. She has become the brashest symbol of Carroll County's gun-loving, abortion-hating, unapologetic conservatism. And she loves it. "Yeah, I'm a lightning rod and I'm outspoken," she said. "I'm sure the Democrats would like to get rid of somebody like me, who doesn't go to Annapolis for 90 days to socialize but to speak up for the principles of my constituents."

The ousted member of the Carroll County Republican Central Committee claims the panel illegally removed him from an elected position, but he would have to ask a court to decide on such a claim, the state attorney general's office said last week. The committee voted in closed session July 6 to remove Joe Burns Jr., who was elected to a four-year term in 2002. Michelle Jefferson, committee chairwoman, said she followed the organization's bylaws and advice from the state organization in taking the action, which she called "housekeeping."
