Two cities in the same state. Each has a woman as mayor. Both women are African-American. And both have the first name of Sheila. Well, that's how it was for three weeks, anyway. Sheila Dixon became the first female mayor of Baltimore this year. Dixon ascended to the post of mayor (or descended, depending on how you feel about the mayor's office in Baltimore) when former Mayor Martin O' Malley left for the governor's mansion. From July 26 through Aug. 15, Sheila M. Finlayson was the acting mayor of Annapolis, standing in for incumbent Mayor Ellen O. Moyer, who was in Europe visiting the sister cities of our state capital.

Amy Finlayson had no idea what she was getting into when she first committed to being a high school softball pitcher."I didn't know I had to pitch all year," said the Bel Air junior. "But once I started, I wanted to be the best. As soon as I saw the competition, it gave me a lot more drive. Going to camps and seeing how everyone did just pushed me harder."Now, Finlayson spends as much time as possible on the diamond during the spring and summer months. In the off-season, she pitches at least twice a week after volleyball or basketball practice and often attends weekend clinics.

Democratic insiders are doing some soul-searching after the party's hand-picked candidate for Annapolis city council won by a razor-thin margin, not the landslide they'd predicted. Sheila M. Finlayson, former head of the powerful Anne Arundel County teachers union, beat James M. Conley, her Republican opponent in Ward 4, where Democrats hold a nearly 3-to-1 voter registration edge - by 35 votes. Going into the special election Tuesday, Finlayson seemed to have everything on her side: She was coming off a decisive defeat of her primary opponent, enjoyed wide name recognition and had a list of 500 voters who said they would pull the lever for her. But the result in the election, one of two city races decided last week, was 247 to 212. "I was surprised, especially from looking at the margin from the primary.

Members of the Anne Arundel County teachers union are planning a no-confidence vote on Superintendent Eric J. Smith even though Smith announced in August that he is leaving late next month for an unpaid position at Harvard University. The Teachers Association of Anne Arundel County initially was to meet in August to call for the vote, but Smith resigned on the eve of the action. Union president Sheila M. Finlayson said that teachers decided to go ahead with the vote as a symbolic gesture to remind Smith and the school board that many of them are unhappy.

Nonunion teachers at the KIPP Harbor Academy will have to pay some union fees if an agreement between the charter school and the Teachers Association of Anne Arundel County is approved by the school board. The union represents all teachers, guidance counselors and other school-based employees, although only about 75 percent of the approximately 5,400 staffers are dues-paying members, said teachers union President Sheila M. Finlayson. The right to charge nonmembers for the cost of negotiating and enforcing the union contract was a contentious point during this year's bargaining talks with the school system.

With one full day of campaigning left, the two candidates vying for the open Ward 4 Annapolis council seat are talking tough on crime and trying to parse different approaches. Voters go to the polls Tuesday to choose between Republican James Conley or Democrat Sheila Finlayson. The winner will serve out the remaining three years of Wayne M. Taylor's term. Taylor, a Democrat, stepped down to run the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities. Conley, a financial adviser, said some people in economically disparate neighborhoods such as Newtowne 20, Kingsport and Annapolis Walk told him that they are afraid to go out after dark.

The field of candidates for the special election to fill two vacant Annapolis Board of Aldermen seats was set last night after about 500 voters cast ballots in a two-ward city primary election. Seven people had filed candidacies for the open seats by the Dec. 11 deadline. One Democrat and one Republican won nominations in each ward and places on the ballot for the Jan. 30 special election. Their campaigns largely focused on crime, traffic and quality of life in their respective wards. In Ward 4, where Democrat Wayne Taylor stepped down to head the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities, Democrat Sheila M. Finlayson will face Republican James M. Conley, a financial strategist and chief executive officer of a mortgage company, who ran unopposed.

Democrats Brian Tucker and Sheila Finlayson will face off in Tuesday's special primary, and the winner will face Republican James M. Conley in the Jan. 30 special election.
