THESE are edited excerpts of responses by some Democratic candidates for mayor of Baltimore to a Sun questionnaire. Additional Democratic responses will run through Thursday. Republican responses will be published on Friday.Lawrence A. Bell IIIOn mayoral style: I would operate with an inclusive and collaborative style. I have admired and learned from many leaders in our nation, including Mayor Ed Rendell of Philadelphia, who had to make tough decisions and cut costs; Mayor Bill Campbell of Atlanta, who enhanced economic development for African-Americans and set his city apart as a technology leader, and San Francisco's Mayor Willie Brown, who is known for his promotional abilities, to name a few.I see myself as primarily a salesperson for the city, as the chief person responsible for instilling civic pride.

With less than two weeks to go before the Sept. 11 Democratic primary, six Democratic candidates for mayor squared off in a feistier-than-usual debate last night that focused on crime but also touched on housing, schools and Baltimore's strengths as a city. Several hundred people -- including dozens who could not find seats and stood along the walls -- crammed into a dark community room at the Enoch Pratt Free Library on Cathedral Street to hear the candidates as they spoke during the two-hour debate, which will be broadcast today on The Marc Steiner Show on WYPR-FM.

CARL O. SNOWDEN is a black man. In his youth, he was a civil rights activist.Those are facts. Whether they loom large in the race for Annapolis mayor this fall depends on the other candidates running for the city's top elected office. The amount of emphasis on these factors will speak volumes about the state of race relations in the state capital.The issue of race has been attracting a disproportionate amount of attention thus far. Half of the six people considered to be possible candidates for mayor are black.

EVEN THE RAIN stops nothing. There on Cathedral Street yesterday, across from the Enoch Pratt Free Library where great political debates are waged over the future of this city, they lined up outside Our Daily Bread in their wet clothing and their hunger and waited for something to eat.

The three candidates for mayor all have different philosophies on how to manage growth in Mount Airy, a growing town that straddles the Carroll/Frederick county line. On the town's most polarizing issue now - the Town Council's February annexation of a 152-acre farm - the three candidates are divided. Residents will vote on that annexation in a referendum on the ballot for the May 1 election. Closely tied to the growth issue is the question of how the town will obtain future sources of drinking water.

A councilman and retired banker with 30 years of management experience jumpstarted Westminster's next mayoral race by filing his intent to run yesterday. Thomas K. Ferguson, 62, a first-time candidate for mayor of the county seat, is the first to file for the position. The filing deadline is in April. The election is May 9. Appointed to the Common Council in June 2001 when then-Councilman Kevin E. Dayhoff won the city's mayoral race, Ferguson ran for a four-year council seat last year and reclaimed his spot on the five-member panel.

Responding to scores of faxes sent by Planned Parenthood of Maryland about his position on abortion, a spokesman for Martin O'Malley said yesterday that the mayor is "pro-choice" and supports the state's laws on the issue. Officials at Planned Parenthood said they sent 175 letters to the mayor this week, asking O'Malley to state his position on abortion. They said because he is a possible gubernatorial candidate in this year's election, he should be willing to state his position on a prominent statewide and national issue.

Status quo candidates offer little real hope for Baltimore's poorThe media have decided there are only three realistic candidates for mayor of Baltimore. So we've been treated to televised debates involving just three men.We want systemic change. Poor people need radical change. We watched the debates hoping against hope that a real candidate would emerge.It didn't happen. There will be no change. That's the stark reality. Each of the three candidates is capable of re-arranging the furniture, but they are not interested in building a new house.
