Republican primary voters are blessed with the deepest field of candidates they've had for governor in a generation - four men who each bring compelling stories to their quests to replace Gov. Martin O'Malley. David Craig is the teacher turned legislator, mayor and county executive. Ron George is a one-time soap opera actor who is now a state delegate and (literally) a Main Street business owner. Larry Hogan is a former state cabinet secretary and son of the first Republican congressman to announce that he would vote to impeach Richard Nixon.

On the page after your chilling profile of Columbia Mall killer Darion Marcus Aguilar, whose purchase and firing of a shotgun led to the tragic deaths of two young people, a story appears in which Republican gubernatorial candidate David R. Craig announced his intention to repeal Maryland's stricter gun laws ( "Craig vows to reverse gun laws, seek sales tax break for Md. goods," March 12). That's just what we need, Mr. Craig: Make it even easier for mentally disturbed people to get a hold of weapons to kill innocents.

Getting regular maintenance for your car does not have an immediate impact on the performance of the vehicle, so it's easy to put off. Deciding not to change the oil or rotate the tires seems to have no effect other than to save money. What County Executive David Craig has been doing to Harford County since he took over has been analogous to driving a car without getting the oil changed. He has submitted a budget that for the 7th year in a row fails to provide his employees with even a cost of living increase.

Craig noted that his campaign did not engage in the practice. That evening I was very critical of his eschweing of trackers , noting that to not be tracking was akin to "political malpractice. " Here is Craig's full quote from the Sun article: Republican gubernatorial candidate  David R. Craig  on Monday criticized Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's use of a "tracker" to videotape Attorney General  Douglas F. Gansler 's public appearances, calling the practice a way for Brown to "trash his opponent" in the Democratic race.

Craig should refrain from cheap shots David Craig, Harford's appointed County Executive, must be running scared against his opponent Ann Helton (The Baltimore Sun, July 9). Instead of confronting her professional qualifications and plans for the future of our County, David Craig attacks her husband! It's a cheap shot and an easy distraction, I guess, for people who think a woman can only be successful if dominated and financed by men. Art Helton is a highly successful businessman and public servant.

The following was posted on the Harford County Education Association's website Monday, Dec. 19: Why Bonus Money Must Be Part of Negotiations The County Executive, David Craig, is trying to tell the school system how to spend their money. He is not allowed to do this. It is against the law. Why is this bad for you? • If we allow David Craig to do this it will take away all your rights to negotiate money in the future. • The County Executive could claim every year that there is not enough money to fund wage increases.

THE ISSUE -- Havre de Grace has experienced significant growth in recent years, and several large-scale projects are coming soon. City Councilman Wayne Dougherty has expressed concerns that the city's services could be strained by the influx of development and suggested the city institute a six-month moratorium on new building. His idea comes as the county in general prepares for an unprecedented influx of jobs over the next two to six years as part of a nationwide military base consolidation plan.

Editor: Congratulations to David Craig in his bid for Governor of the State of Maryland. I wonder if Mr. Craig realizes that for each Maryland county, there is a county teacher's union. There are many teachers in the State of Maryland, many students of voting age who want to become teachers and even more family and friends of teachers. If there was never any additional room in the Harford County budget for teacher pay increases in the past...

In a recent letter to the editor, K. Cooper was half right - the Democrats have no one who is genuinely qualified to be Maryland's next governor ( "Who's qualified to be Maryland's next governor? No one!" April 5). However, the Republicans do: David Craig. He has 18 years of experience as the mayor of Havre de Grace and executive of Harford County. He has delivered tax relief and balanced budgets while still providing the services people need. He is not a career politician or bureaucrat - he is a former teacher and a true public servant.

I am appalled at the two candidates for the upcoming Primary Election in June, one in each of the two major parties in this county: a Republican and a Democrat. The Republican is County Executive David Craig. He ignored the needs and petitions of voters in the southwest corner of the county: Joppa and Edgewood, District A in not championing the purchase of the Joppatowne pool property that would have ultimately served all of District A not just Joppatowne. Instead, [he championed]

Republican gubernatorial candidate David R. Craig has launched what appears to be the first volley in what is expected to be a multimillion-dollar broadcast media war with an ad on Baltimore radio stations highlighting his proposal to phase out Maryland's income tax. Craig, the Harford County executive, will run the 30-second spot on WBAL and WCBM. According to his campaign, it is the first paid media ad of the 2014 campaign for governor. Craig is in a four-way race for the Republican nomination with former Ehrlich administration official Larry Hogan, Del. Ron George of Anne Arundel County and Charles County business executive Charles Lollar.

Republican gubernatorial candidate David R. Craig released a plan Tuesday would put Maryland on a "glide path" toward eliminating its state income tax while cutting total spending by a minimum of 3 percent a year. Craig, who has been Harford County executive for the past decade, said such a move would stimulate economic growth and halt a loss of population to states with lower taxes. "We must restore Maryland to the way it was and we need a governor who knows how to do it," he said.

Gubernatorial candidate David R. Craig was off to Arizona Thursday to meet with Republican governors in an effort to win their backing for his effort to win back deep blue Maryland for the GOP in 2014. Jim Pettit, Craig's campaign spokesman, confirmed that Craig was en route to Scottsdale for the annual gathering of the Republican Governors Association. One of the RGA's primary missions is to protect sitting Republican governors and to try to expand their ranks, but the association typically looks for assurances that challengers are viable and that their races are winnable -- a heavy lift in Democratic-dominated Maryland.

Republican David R. Craig said Tuesday that he would push to cut the state income tax rate for Maryland's wealthiest residents by more than 20 percent during his first year as governor. Craig, one of four GOP candidates running in June's primary, said his plan would put Maryland on a course to eliminate its income tax entirely during his second term while cutting spending by 3 percent a year. He said such a move would stimulate economic growth and halt a loss of population to states with lower taxes.

A gubernatorial hopeful has offered to pay the phone bills of the Seattle pottery store that fielded hundreds of wayward calls from people stuck in Maryland's broken health exchange. After The Baltimore Sun reported that the state's insurance website erroneously listed the toll-free number of a West Coast specialty kiln business instead of the state call center, Republican David Craig said Monday he hopes to reimburse the business out of his personal checking account. "The state should have taken the lead on this," said Craig, the Harford County executive.
