With the deadline looming Friday, only one person has applied to replace John R. Leopold as Anne Arundel County executive as other potential candidates weighed their options. Tom Angelis of Davidsonville, a former candidate for county executive and the county Recreation and Parks Department director in 1997 and 1998, said he filed shortly before offices closed Wednesday. At least a half-dozen other candidates may apply, and if some of them bid for the job, it might affect which council members can cast votes.

The Anne Arundel County Council voted Monday night to temporarily lower the county's income tax rate, a move that was sharply rebuked by County Executive John R. Leopold. The council voted 5-2 to lower the rate from 2.56 to 2.50 for a year, which will save taxpayers a total of about $8 million. The move comes a month after the council voted to increase the county's property tax rate. Leopold, a Republican who pushed for the property tax increase, said the council's latest action could have dire effects on labor negotiations, state funding and the county's bond rating.

By resigning ahead of a vote to remove him, former Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold may hold onto his $8,000 county pension, officials said. "I believe this factored into his decision," said Jerry Walker, chairman of the Anne Arundel County Council. The County Council had scheduled a vote to remove Leopold for Monday, his 70th birthday, after he was found guilty last week of criminal misconduct in office. With six of seven members co-sponsoring the measure, it was expected to pass.

The Anne Arundel County Council passed a resolution Monday night commending the county police department — but not its chief — for decreasing crime in 2011. The council passed the resolution only after approving an amendment specifically removing Police Chief James E. Teare Sr.'s name from the language. The councilmanic move follows another council resolution last month expressing no confidence in Teare. The council said it is concerned with Teare's ability to lead the police department in light of certain allegations in the March indictment of County Executive John R. Leopold.

With John R. Leopold suspended from office due to Tuesday's criminal convictions, some Anne Arundel County Republicans are jockeying to be the next county executive. "My name is going in," said John Grasso, who represents the Glen Burnie area on the County Council. He announced last year that he planned to run for the office in 2014. "I might as well get a head start. " For months - even as Leopold battled the charges - names have been floated as potential replacements. After Leopold was suspended, some County Council members said that a measure to declare his position vacant would be scheduled for introduction Wednesday and a vote Monday.

Ann Fligsten, a noted land-use attorney in Anne Arundel County, has long voiced her opinion on planning and zoning issues, testifying before the County Council and meeting with county officials. As chairwoman of the Growth Action Network, Fligsten helped organize a lawsuit filed last month alleging that the County Council violated state law by passing several amendments to a zoning bill that would allow development that opponents believe is prohibited by long-established county guidelines.
