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.

Out-of-town growth uses up our water While I appreciate The Sun's commending the town of Mount Airy's decision to focus on water sources close to town borders and to create a green buffer at its perimeter ("Reverse field," editorial, June 14), I also encourage The Sun and its readers to recognize that the circumstances surrounding growth in Maryland are not always comparable and that a bigger issue exists in Western Maryland, especially in the Piedmont region. Most of the towns in the Piedmont region have either reached maximum development or are close to maximizing the development that can fit within the current water allocations from the Maryland Department of the Environment.

Ocean may swamp the Shore's growth Many valid reasons to limit Eastern Shore development were delineated in The Sun's editorial "Who's minding the Shore?" (July 5) and in Dan Rodricks' column "More is not necessarily better for the Shore" (July 6). However, one aspect of the problem needs special attention. Certainly, many of these new housing developments will be built in low-lying areas that are prone to the sort of flooding recently experienced by several local towns. And many of the new homeowners will be commuting long distances to work, increasing their personal contribution to greenhouse gases.
