Del. Neil F. Quinter, a Howard County Democrat, has bowed out of the congressional 3rd District race and instead will seek re-election to the House of Delegates. Quinter said his choice stems in part from the decision of John P. Sarbanes, eldest son of Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes, to run for the 3rd District seat. The post is being vacated by Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin, who is running for the Senate. "It is a hard decision to reach, but I'm in this to make a positive difference," he said Tuesday.

Despite the expense, Howard County should not wait to begin all-day kindergarten until state law requires it in 2007, says a newly elected state delegate who is introducing his first bill in hopes of speedier action. A public hearing on the bill, with several other local measures, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the George Howard Building in Ellicott City. Del.-elect Neil Quinter, a District 13 Democrat, has not been sworn into office, but he is pushing the county's school system to produce a plan to start all-day kindergarten in 2004 for schools at which 20 percent or more of children enrolled are poor.

With about one-third of the 90-day General Assembly session left, Howard County first-term Del. Neil F. Quinter is leading his colleagues in one important category: news releases. On subjects from video voyeurism to gun control, Quinter has issued 17 news releases - two more than the number of bills he has sponsored. "My view is that I got elected to get things done. I'm trying to get a lot done." A Washington lawyer and outspoken Democrat with Capitol Hill experience, the Kings Contrivance resident is always ready to offer an opinion in public, and not just in Annapolis.

In an unusual pairing of political fortunes, Del.-elect Neil Quinter, a Democrat, has hired an unsuccessful County Council candidate as his General Assembly legislative aide. Calvin Ball, the 27-year old Oakland Mills resident who finished second in the Democratic primary election for the east Columbia County Council seat in September, will start his new job Jan. 8, the day Quinter officially becomes a delegate. Ball lost in the primary by less than 350 votes to David A. Rakes. Quinter, who will serve on the House Judiciary Committee, said he was "very impressed with Calvin's energy, enthusiasm and potential during the campaign," and said he emerged from the primary gracefully, without engendering "any hard feelings."

Freshman Del. Neil F. Quinter is the new chairman of Howard County's delegation to the Maryland House of Delegates, replacing Frank S. Turner, a fellow Democrat. "I'd done it three years," Turner said. "It was a good time to show some other individual's leadership skills." Turner is taking over chairmanship of the House Appropriations subcommittee on personnel, and is vice chairman of the education subcommittee. Although Del. Gail H. Bates, a western county Republican, expressed interest in the chairman's job, "Neil was going to get elected," Turner said.

DEL. NEIL F. Quinter says there's a bull's-eye on his back because of his gun-control views. Quinter, an outspoken first-term Democrat from a competitive Howard County district, is a lead sponsor of legislation to ban assault weapons in Maryland. Supporters of the bill say it is needed because a federal ban is about to expire. "The Maryland Republican Party has put me on its `target list' for defeat," Quinter said in a fund-raising message to supporters this month. "I also recently found out that a group of pro-gun activists met at Howard County Republican Party headquarters for the sole purpose of coming up with a strategy for defeating me because of the Maryland assault weapons ban that I am sponsoring in the House."

One Howard County delegate lost his seat in yesterday's Democratic primary, while another fended off a challenge from a determined newcomer. Republican Warren E. Miller won his party primary along with incumbent Del. Gail H. Bates in their western county district, while incumbent Neil F. Quinter lost to a ticket featuring a popular county council member.

When three-term Del. Frank S. Turner knocked on their door, retirees Irene and Jim MacDonald agreed to put a Guzzone-Pendergrass-Turner campaign sign on the lawn of their 33-year home in Columbia. They did the same thing when Del. Neil F. Quinter showed up with his sign. The MacDonalds, who live on the high-traffic corner of Tamar Drive and Old Montgomery Road, are one of a handful of families with lawn signs advertising four candidates for the three available Democratic nominations to the Maryland House of Delegates from Howard County's District 13. The popularity of the four elected officials is creating a problem for about 11,000 Democrats likely to vote in the Sept.

Del. Neil F. Quinter apparently never learned during his Harvard University Law School education one of the golden rules of childhood: No takebacks! The Howard County Democrat has changed his mind about running for the congressional 3rd District and instead will seek re-election to the House of Delegates. And he wants Howard County Council Chairman Guy Guzzone - who is running for what he thought was Quinter's vacant seat - to get out of his way. Quinter is trying to convince Guzzone that seeking a "virtually guaranteed" re-election to the County Council is the best thing for the state - and Guzzone's family.

THREE-TERM Howard County Del. Shane E. Pendergrass said she found a quick cure for her chronic stomach ache - deciding not to run for the Democratic nomination for a seat in the U.S. Congress. "I figured I would know in my gut what to do, and after having a stomach ache for two weeks, it went away instantly. I kept not listening," Pendergrass said about her decision-making process. Pendergrass, along with fellow District 13 Democrat Del. Neil F. Quinter, had been considering a run for the 3rd District congressional seat now held by U.S. Rep. Benjamin L.

Tension among Democrats is straining relations in Howard's new 13th Legislative District as former Columbia Democratic Club President Neil F. Quinter prepares to formally announce his candidacy for the Maryland House of Delegates. The pre-primary disagreement is the kind of intra-party rift that can cause hard feelings, raising Republican hopes in a district designed to favor Democrats, though the Democrats insist that won't happen. Quinter, who is planning a ceremony in front of Atholton Elementary School tomorrow, is supporting two other Democrats running in the redrawn, eastern county district - state Senate candidate C. Vernon Gray and Del. Frank S. Turner, who is running for re-election.
