Two men are hoping to snap the 16-year Democratic reign in the Baltimore County Council's District 6 that began when Joseph Bartenfelder unseated incumbent William A. Howard IV, and both candidates are stressing Republican themes of cutting spending, reducing taxes, making government more efficient and making the county more inviting for new business. District 6 stretches roughly from the Northeast Baltimore line to the Chesapeake Bay, and includes Putty Hill, Middle River and White Marsh.

Young lists issues in council campaign Harford County has long been a terrific place to live. Yet there are many issues facing our county that will require reasoned debate, careful planning and coordinated action if we are to continue to have a small-town atmosphere with a growing economy. We must be tough on crime - the existence of gangs and the shocking crimes occurring throughout the county must be fought with the concerted effort of all of Harford's law enforcement. We must make education a priority, and we must continue to improve all county schools.

Although South Carroll is home to more than one-fourth of the county's registered voters, the fast-growing region has yet to flex its political muscle at the polls, fielding few candidates in the November election.Candidates from South Carroll are calling for more classrooms and better roads to address local problems, but voter apathy has infected the county's most populous area, said Carolyn Fairbank, an Eldersburg independent who is running for the Board of County Commissioners."If every precinct in South Carroll voted for South Carroll issues, there would be real potential to flex its political muscle," Fairbank said.

Lt. Clarence W. Bell Jr. recalls his first assignment as a rookie state trooper in St. Mary's County - going undercover to buy cocaine at a bar - and how that led to his being the target of a hit man. Later, as a SWAT team sniper, he spent 18 hours on a Baltimore roof during a standoff with inmates who had taken prison guards hostage. And when he rose to command one of the agency's suburban barracks, he came up with a plan that he says has reduced the number of traffic deaths on Howard County roads patrolled by the state police.

With the filing deadline for candidates passed, Maryland's much-anticipated election season officially kicked off last week. For the first time in a half-century, a Republican governor is running as an incumbent. Long-suffering members of Maryland's GOP have been looking forward to this day from the moment Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. was elected governor in 2002. And with an improved economy, and voters' historic penchant for re-electing incumbent governors, they would appear to have reason to celebrate.

Three days before the filing deadline, Baltimore County Republicans are left without an established candidate for county executive, after their top choice said yesterday he won't run. GOP leaders say several people are considering the race against incumbent James T. Smith Jr., and they are hopeful at least one will step forward before Monday's deadline. But some expressed surprise that at such a late date, the only Republican in the race for the highest office in Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s home county is a maintenance worker with no political experience.

Growth and congestion may be on Howard County voters' minds, but the issue was far from front and center during a flurry of four campaign events this week. No one knows that better than Harry M. Dunbar, who bills himself as "the slow-growth candidate" for county executive. Only five people and a security guard attended Dunbar's $60-a-ticket performance of the Julie Hall Jazz Quartet at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre, but Dunbar said he is undaunted and will keep trying. The poor response last Sunday came despite his purchase of a local newspaper ad and distribution of 2,500 fliers advertising the event.

As the daughter of a Howard County politician constantly involved in parades, meetings and campaigns, school board member Courtney Watson was sure of one thing as a youngster, her brother Chris Cochran told a crowd gathered at the Elkridge fire hall this week . "What she didn't want to do was get involved in politics," he told an amused crowd gathered to hear his 43-year-old sister announce that she is running for the Howard County Council. After months of deliberation, Watson, a Democrat, mother of three and vice president of an insurance agency, said she finally decided to run for the council in 2006 rather than county executive because it "just felt like it was a better fit."

Jeannie Nichols has a way of sneaking up on people. She doesn't pop off snappy quotes or make radical promises, but the more observers hear the Democratic candidate for county commissioner discuss issues, the more they seem to respect her. "I wasn't tremendously excited about Jeannie's candidacy at first," said Ross Dangel, spokesman for the Freedom Area Citizens' Council, an Eldersburg community group. "But the more you hear her talk, the more you realize she has very well-researched and thought-out opinions on almost every issue.
