A WAVE of anti-incumbent fever is sweeping the country. Nowhere has it been more evident than in Baltimore County where two incumbent councilmen were defeated in the primary election and another just managed to survive.I decided to ride the crest of this wave because I share the frustration of my Baltimore County neighbors. We are angry about high property taxes and a newly imposed beverage tax. But most of all, we are exasperated by the failure of the incumbent county executive to control government costs through efficiency and sensible spending priorities, and by his high-handed disregard of our concerns.

The $1.2 billion approved by the Maryland General Assembly for city school construction is a historic opportunity for transformation in Baltimore. But if, after 10 years, the outcome is just new schools, we will have missed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to affect not only schools but entire neighborhoods. As an architect, I believe in the value of good facilities and their ability to create healthy environments that promote learning. But better buildings alone are not enough to restore communities.

An unusual thing happened as a series of shootings rocked Baltimore: People took notice, got organized and hit the streets to show their outrage. In a city where the toll of violence is seldom met with palpable anger, a recent stretch that saw more than 40 shot and 16 killed touched off a series of anti-violence demonstrations that continued into Monday. Those behind the events included ministers and politicians, but also young professionals, fraternity members, a party promoter and longtime residents who are simply fed up. "This tremendous stretch of crime has captured everyone's minds and has been an igniter to wake people up," said Lt. Col. Melvin Russell, a 34-year veteran who oversees the Police Department's community partnership division.
