MANCHESTER - State Sen. Joe Getty this week asked the Carroll County Board of Education to adopt a north county zone for implementation of school delays - similar to the "Hereford Zone" that currently operates in Baltimore County. In a letter sent on Jan. 24 to Board President Jennifer Seidel, Getty cited hazardous road conditions that confronted students, parents and school bus drivers on Jan. 23 in the Taneytown, Manchester and Hampstead communities as an example that demonstrates the need for such a zone.

The three delegates in the Fifth Legislative District have the burden of serving as psuedo-county councilmen as well as state legislators.Because Carroll County has no charter, the state legislature reviews all local bills. In other metropolitan counties, these bills are handled by county councils. Thus, Carroll delegates find themselves shepherding local bills through a General Assembly that has little interest in them. These delegates must also be agile enough to focus attention on statewide economic and social matters.

The fundamentals remain the same, Joseph M. Getty says. You craft an appealing message, you deliver it to as many people as possible through evening phone calls, mailed brochures and face-to-face chats, and then you try to coax - or shove - supporters to the polls Election Day. That's how Getty won a state delegate seat in Carroll County, and it's how he expects his candidate to win a hotly contested governor's race. Because the basics never change, Getty says, his transition this year from running his local campaigns to serving as political director for Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s gubernatorial campaign has felt seamless.

Ten years ago, a little-known Carroll County Republican named Joseph M. Getty broke ranks and took on Helen Delich Bentley, a congresswoman who was then the most powerful member of the state GOP.It was the 1988 presidential campaign, and Bentley had quietly stashed thousands of dollars in campaign funds in Carroll's Republican coffers, in part to keep it away from a rival. When Getty, then a member of the county's Republican Central Committee, found out, he refused to keep quiet.The Federal Elections Commission later fined the Republican National Committee and the treasurer of the county central committee.

State Sen. Joe Getty (R-Dist. 5) was recently honored by the Carroll County Student Government Association with its 2012 Friend of the CCSGA award. "Senator Getty was phenomenal last year in his dedication to helping the students," said Angela Bladen, a 2012 graduate of Francis Scott Key High School who served as the student representative to the county Board of Education during the 2011-2012 school year. During the 2012 legislative session of the General Assembly, the student government association initiated a legislative proposal that would make the current practice by which a student representative serves on the Carroll County Board of Education a requirement under state law. The Carroll County Senate Delegation introduced the proposal as Senate Bill 660. The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 47-0 but died in the House of Delegates.

Madison Getty is just like any other page in Annapolis. She makes coffee, delivers papers to be signed, runs errands for legislators and helps get things ready in the morning for members of Maryland's House of Delegates. She does have one tiny advantage, however. Her dad is state Sen. Joe Getty, who serves Carroll and Baltimore counties in the District 5, and so Madison knows her way around the State House buildings, from the tunnels up. "It's been helpful that I've been here," Madison, 17, said.
