City Councilman Carl Stokes said he surprised himself with his wide margin of victory over Odette Ramos in Tuesday's Democratic primary race to represent Charles Village. "It's much more than I expected, frankly," Stokes, an appointed councilman who was running for the 12th District seat, said on election night as he partied with Council President Bernard C. 'Jack' Young, who soundly defeated former Senator Theatre ownerTom Kiefaber. With all Baltimore voting precincts reporting in the Democratic primary race, Stokes led Ramos by 49 to 23 percent, with Devon Brown at 12 percent, Jason Curtis at 8 percent and three others at 3 percent or less, in one of the city's most hotly contested races.

In an election with few surprises, Baltimore City Councilwoman Belinda M. Conaway stood out. The two-term incumbent lost to a political newcomer in a relatively close race that was called Wednesday morning. With the possible exception of one council race that is still too close to call, Conaway was the only sitting member defeated in Tuesday's Democratic primary. After being dogged in recent months by questions about where she lives, she lost to Nick Mosby, an electrical engineer from Reservoir Hill, by 648 votes.

On election night, it's customary for candidates to throw a big shindig for themselves even if they know they're toast. Well, Frank Conaway is not your conventional candidate. Asked if he had party plans for tonight, the Baltimore Circuit Court Clerk and wannabe rapper was incredulous. "A party? Oh, no, I'm not having a party," he said. "I'm tired, man. I need rest. " Sorry to break to you, folks. Conaway won't even sing his trademark rap . His plans are to invite a few friends and relatives over to his home.

Mere seconds after setting foot on the bustling sidewalk outside Lexington Market, Frank M. Conaway Sr. is surrounded first by a small group of admirers, quickly followed by hordes of hangers-on howling his name. Like many Baltimoreans who have fallen on hard times, they want something from their politicians. And this crowd doesn't shy away from asking. On a rainy day last week, dozens of people — some of whom said they were living in government-subsidized apartments or were homeless — pleaded with Conaway for jobs.

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.

Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and her husband collected homestead tax credits on two separate properties before she became mayor of Baltimore, in violation of a state rule that prohibits married couples from claiming the break on more than one residence, according to property records, tax bills and state regulations. Shortly before Rawlings-Blake was sworn in as mayor last year, her husband fixed the problem, repaying seven years' worth of the credits on the Columbia house he has owned since before they were married in 2000.

Here I go again, but when I read how City Councilwoman Belinda Conaway and her father, a candidate for mayor, gave those lame excuses why they got tax breaks on property they owned, it is an insult to the intelligence of the people of Baltimore. Here we have people running our city, supposedly reading important documents and voting for the good of city residents, offering the excuse of "inadvertently signed mortgage documents" describing a Randallstown home as the councilwoman's primary residence.

I'm confused by the rationale behind Councilwoman Belinda Conaway's recent comments advocating the removal of speed cameras in Baltimore City. She states that the cameras should be removed so we can concentrate on "quality of life issues. " But speed cameras are not only a quality of life issue but a public safety issue with life and death consequences. Maybe if Ms. Conaway spent less time in Randallstown, and more time in the district she was elected to serve, she would come to the same conclusion.

On the campaign trail, mayoral candidate Frank Conaway can often be heard passionately criticizing his opponents. Today, the Baltimore Circuit Court Clerk does it in rhyme. Conaway, 77, posted a rap on his campaign website where he takes a few cutting digs at the mayor, and candidates Otis Rolley, Catherine Pugh and Joseph "Jody" Landers. On the minute-long rap, he opens with a "I'm Frank Conaway and I approve this message," and then asks some of his opponents, "How you gonna take advice from the gift card bandit?"

City Councilwoman Belinda Conaway now admits she signed papers stating that her primary residence is in Baltimore County ("Councilwoman Conaway drops $21 million libel suit," Aug. 2). If she does not live there, as she claims, why did she apply for a mortgage as a primary residence? If she lives in the county, why is she registered to vote in the city, and why does she hold office there? Is it no wonder there is so much crime in the city when city public officials think they can buck the system whenever they feel like it?
