Speaking to a group of developers, the seven candidates for Anne Arundel County executive this week railed against the county's approval process for development, with most calling for an overhaul of the Department of Planning and Zoning to cut red tape - and the time - necessary to get permits. At a candidates forum before the Anne Arundel Commercial and Industrial Association on Wednesday in Gambrills, the five Republicans and two Democrats seeking to succeed Janet S. Owens said the current permit process needlessly delays projects for years and adds costs that are passed down to consumers.

Frank M. Conaway says he had nothing to do with emails that first called and then canceled a news conference Thursday at which he was supposedly to make an "important announcement. " The messages, which hit inboxes on the first day of early voting in the Democratic mayoral primary, set off speculation that Conaway was planning to withdraw from the race, as he did in 2007. But Conaway, one of several candidates challenging Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in the Sept. 13 primary, said he did not send the emails.

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.

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.

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.
