District 32 voters have the opportunity to re-elect a state senator who has done his job effectively and with as much candor as any politician in Annapolis: Michael J. Wagner.Mr. Wagner has held this Senate seat since 1982. Some, including his opponent, Anne Arundel County Councilman C. Edward Middlebrooks, would say that is too long. That's true only if a legislator has stopped doing his job and caring about his constituents. But Mr. Wagner remains one of Anne Arundel's most energetic and influential Democrats -- a tireless worker in the community, a strong voice for business and the quintessential pragmatist.

A former political operative for powerful Republican congressmen is seeking to unseat an influential Democratic incumbent in one of the most hotly contested districts in the state. With military base restructuring slated to add 20,000 jobs to Fort Meade over five years, controlling a development boom in District 32 - which includes Glen Burnie, Hanover, Linthicum, Odenton and Severn - is the most important issue for both candidates. Jon Vandenheuvel, a former aide to Rep. Pete Hoekstra of Michigan and former Rep. J.C. Watts of Oklahoma, said he will use the growth to create opportunity for African-Americans in the district and would be an agent of change in Annapolis.

The six Republican candidates vying for three seats representing District 32 in the House of Delegates probably wouldn't have much to discuss in a debate over one of the biggest local issues. They oppose maglev, the high-speed train proposed to connect Washington and Baltimore that would likely run through parts of the district if it were built. They talk about fixing the education system statewide, one way or another. Most agree that a top priority for whomever takes the seat should be reducing the $1 billion deficit the state faces.
