Kirk J. Halpin, a 31-year-old lawyer and Kings Contrivance representative on the Columbia Council, will run for the Howard County Council in District 3 next year, he said yesterday. Halpin, a Republican who lost his party's primary election in 1998 to Wanda Hurt, would face incumbent Guy J. Guzzone, a North Laurel-Savage Democrat, if he wins the nomination in 2002. Diane Wilson, who is active in the Republican Party, is also considering a run for the seat. Halpin was involved in several controversies on the Columbia Council, including the ouster last year of former Columbia Association President Deborah O. McCarty, which he supported.

Kirk Halpin thinks he may have found an incentive to spur democracy in Columbia -- $5,000 for each winner of a seat on the Columbia Council. In the draft of the Columbia Association's $45.8 million 2004 fiscal budget, Halpin, who is a council member, is proposing that each of the 10 council members be awarded $5,000 -- the first time the council would be paid in the association's history -- if they attend at least 80 percent of the meetings. Halpin, of Kings Contrivance, said he has been frustrated by the small number of people running for seats on the 10-member council that governs the 95,000-resident homeowners association.

Former Columbia Councilman Kirk Halpin of Kings Contrivance is seeking appointment to the seat he lost in April's elections. The post became vacant with the resignation of Steven Pine last week. Halpin said that if the village board appoints him to fill the rest of Pine's term, he still intends to run for Howard County Council as a Republican in District 3. The County Council election will be held in November next year. Pine served six months of a two-year term, which expires in April 2003.

If Howard County Councilman Guy J. Guzzone thought his Zoning Board vote on the Maple Lawn mixed-use development wouldn't come back to haunt him at election time, he was wrong. Kirk J. Halpin, a Republican real estate lawyer who got to know Guzzone when both served on the Kings Contrivance Village Board, came out swinging on the issue in launching his campaign for Democrat Guzzone's seat. "I consider Guy a friend. I think he's a nice guy, no pun intended," said Halpin, who added that "I do hate negative attacks."

Kirk Halpin reclaimed the Columbia Council seat he lost in April's elections as the Kings Contrivance Village Board appointed him last night to the post, which had become vacant with Councilman Steven Pine's surprise resignation a week earlier. The village board voted 2-1 to appoint Halpin to serve the remainder of Pine's two-year term, which expires in April 2003. Board member Robert Patchan cast the dissenting vote and Rachel Ticar was absent. Patchan wanted Halpin to be appointed only until April next year, when a new election could be held.

ONE OF THE key local races in the Nov. 3 general election is for the Howard County Council District 3 seat being vacated by TTC Dennis R. Schraeder. He is running for the Republican nomination for Howard County executive.There is no Democratic primary in District 3 because Guy Guzzone, former director of the Maryland Sierra Club, is the only Democratic candidate. Mr. Guzzone poses a stiff challenge for whomever wins the Republican primary.The GOP front-runner is probably Wanda Hurt, a former member of the Columbia Council and former president of the Oakland Mills High School PTA, who has Mr. Schrader's backing.

As the only Howard County Council Democrat seeking a new term, Guy J. Guzzone has the luxury of watching two Republicans compete in the primary for the District 3 nomination while he goes for the November gold. Either Republican B. Diane Wilson, 52, or Kirk J. Halpin, 32, could be a formidable rival for the one-term, 38-year-old incumbent in a redrawn district that elected a Republican eight years ago. And if the GOP can capture the southeastern county seat again, the Republicans likely would regain control of the five-member County Council.

The Columbia Council has agreed to spend up to $35,000 to find a new Columbia Association president and has hired a Chicago-based executive search consultant to help. The council chose the search firm DMG-MAXIMUS late Thursday at a meeting. It voted to spend $17,500 for consulting fees, up to $8,500 for the firm's expenses and up to $9,000 for the expenses of finalists asked to travel to Columbia for interviews. DMG-MAXIMUS' headquarters are in Tallahassee, Fla., but the consultant who will work with the Columbia Association is based in the company's Chicago office, said Councilman Kirk Halpin of Kings Contrivance, chairman of the council's executive search firm selection committee.

At a public forum last night, the two candidates vying for the Kings Contrivance seat on the Columbia Council heard residents' concerns about wasteful spending, lien rates and the effectiveness of the Columbia Association. About a dozen residents came to Amherst House armed with questions for incumbent Kirk Halpin and challenger Steven Pine. Halpin asked residents to re-elect him so that he could tend to some unfinished business, namely, the drafting of a strategic plan for Columbia's future.

Although the female officer was not present during the remark, she heard of it and filed a complaint with the department's Internal Affairs Unit.

The Columbia Council chose finalists for the job of Columbia Association president after interviewing eight candidates last weekend, keeping the council on schedule to hire someone by next month to head the homeowners association for the community of 87,000. Councilman Kirk Halpin of Kings Contrivance said the council chose "the top two or three" candidates Sunday in a closed-door meeting. He declined to be more specific, but council sources said three were selected. Halpin said narrowing the list was not difficult for council members, despite the fact that they are often sharply divided on matters large and small.
