In his eloquently written commentary ("Giving lip service to debate," Sept. 27), Towson University's Richard E. Vatz hits the nail on the head about the recent removal and arrest of a parent who spoke out at a regional public forum on the Common Core standards held in Baltimore County. A friend of mine attended the forum and recounted her shock at the harsh treatment the parent suffered for expressing his views verbally instead of acquiescing to the required format. As Mr. Vatz points out, the policy of permitting only written questions can stifle dissent by allowing the moderator to pick and choose which questions to answer.

As early voting got underway Thursday in the primary race for governor, the four Republicans competing for the GOP nomination jockeyed to present themselves as the most qualified to take on a Democrat in November. The candidates taped a final televised forum in a Washington studio and, as they have in the past, largely agreed that tax cuts are in order after eight years under Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley. But the normally genial discussion among the Republicans was punctuated by each candidate trying to reinforce his credentials as the conservative most likely to succeed in a state where Democrats hold a 2-1 registration advantage.

OCEAN CITY — Gubernatorial candidates of both parties promised city and town officials that they would restore local road repair money cut from the state budget by the O'Malley administration. Appearing at the annual convention of the Maryland Municipal League two weeks before the June 24 primary, Democrat Anthony G. Brown and four Republican candidates pledged full restoration of the transportation spending known as "highway user revenue. " That spending was cut back as much as 95 percent by Gov. Martin O'Malley during the recession as the governor chose to shield other spending priorities from deep cuts.
