Democrat hopeful Joseph R. Robison is ready to take his seat in the House of Delegates -- even though he has yet to beat an opponent in the Sept. 13 primary and would still have to face the incumbent Republican in the general election Nov. 8."I don't see those gentlemen as being leaders," Mr. Robison, a former Laurel mayor, said of his two opponents. "I don't see any record of what they have done."The other candidates in that race -- Democrat John A. Giannetti and incumbent Republican John S. Morgan -- are hardly ready to concede.

The Howard County legislative delegation killed an attempt yesterday to create a uniform fire tax in the county.The 4-3 vote spelled defeat for the County Council, which had pushed the plan. The council is expected to consider an alternative system with two tax rates at a meeting Wednesday.A uniform tax would have consolidated an antiquated system that divides Howard County into six districts where residents pay widely varying rates for essentially the same fire service."I think eventually we will need one fire district," said County Executive Charles I. Ecker, who supported the uniform rate.

The advent of Columbia more than 25 years ago brought many things to Howard County, liberalism among them. The county's rural west and southern tip, however, remain largely conservative country. In these areas, Republicans retain their strongest hold on elective office.In the Senate race in District 14, which includes western Howard and a sliver of Montgomery County, Republican incumbent Christopher J. McCabe faces Anne R. Ward. The owner of a sports equipment store, Ms. Ward has scant political experience.
