Although the Democratic and Republican primaries aren't until Sept. 13 and Roosevelt isn't a voting place, it was the center of attention - and campaign signs - for candidates running for mayor, City Council president and council seats in the 7th, 12th and 14th Districts, which represent parts of Hampden, Remington and Charles Village. Twenty candidates, including one each from the Libertarian and Green parties, descended on the rec center at the corner of Falls Road and 36th Street for the Hampden Community Council's annual "Candidates' Night Out" forum.

One teen spoke about attending 17 schools due to an unstable family. Another discussed the isolation she felt being raised by an unemployed single father who devoted more attention to her younger half-siblings. A third dedicated her question for the politicians to a former classmate who, when he started middle school, began selling drugs to support his family. After weeks of answering questions from religious leaders, labor organizers and talk show hosts, those vying to be Baltimore's next mayor fielded questions from an unexpected group Wednesday evening: high school students.

Frank Kratovil started maneuvering over a possible series of debates. Harris got things going by proposing joint appearances with Kratovil to "talk about fixing Americans' tax burden so we can get our economy moving again and start creating jobs. " He also demanded that the congressman take down an ad that has been criticized as misleading voters about the Republican's position on taxes.

One-half of the main attraction in next month's District 4 County Council primary election didn't show up at the League of Women Voters televised forum for Howard County executive and County Council candidates Tuesday night at school board headquarters. Although Alan Klein's absence prevented a direct discussion with Councilwoman Mary Kay Sigaty — the county's only two primary contenders for a council seat — Dr. Zaneb "Zee" Beams, a novice Democratic candidate in Republican-dominated western Howard, took up the slack with a sharp attack on incumbent Republican Greg Fox. Beams, a pediatrician and first-time candidate who grew up in Howard but lived out of state for years before returning to practice medicine with her pediatrician mother, lit into Fox for trying to cut programs like Healthy Howard, the county's health access program, and for voting against the county budget each year.
