A financial disclosure bill before the County Council was designed to make mischief for the Human Rights Commission, the commission chairman said Monday.Roger W. Jones suggested that the commission has become too zealous for some people's tastes, and that critics might like to tame it by limiting the number of applicants for membership. One way to do that, he said, would be to require nominees to fill out the county's nine-page financial disclosure statement."This commission has been more out front than any other [on human rights issues]

Lamone by placing on the state board Democrats chosen by the governor but not vetted by the party.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. appointed three new members to the Maryland Real Estate Commission this month in a move that replaced the panel's chairman and put the governor's stamp on a board that regulates almost 40,000 brokers and agents. The revamped commission will continue to focus on making the board self-sufficient during a time of record growth in home sales, the new chairman of the nine-member panel said Thursday. "The special funding [to make the board self-sufficient] is the most important issue the commission has addressed," said Steven VanGrack, the chairman.

All but finished naming his Cabinet secretaries and top staff, Ehrlich faces the more daunting task of forming a bureaucracy in his own image -- potentially angering some Democrats who are trying to maintain their grip on power. "We won, we get to appoint our own people," said Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele. "That is how this works."

An editorial in The Sun for Carroll yesterday incorrectly reported the population of Hampstead. The population is about 3,800.The Sun regrets the errors.THERE WAS a time when Hampstead had difficulty finding town residents to serve on its various boards and commissions. As a result, people who lived outside the town often occupied seats on important policy panels such as the planning commission, the ethics board and the board of zoning appeals. Things have changed, and the town council soon will be considering an ordinance requiring any member of a board or commission to be a town resident.

Dell wants the county to quit paying a planning commission member who attended a meeting last month organized by community activists who plan to oppose Dell and Commissioner Richard T. Yates in the 1998 election.Dell said his proposal to halt payments to the alternate member of the county's planning and zoning panel is "an equity issue."But he is sure many people will view the move as political retribution for Deborah L. Ridgely's presence at a "Dump Dell-Yank Yates" dinner in Eldersburg on March 3."
