Letter to The Aegis | July 23, 2013
In a democracy, it is always important to get involved in the process. Many individuals I talk with say that they do not like it when people complain about government, but then they do not even vote. Contrary to popular belief, each vote does matter, and decisions are made by those who show up. That is why I applaud the Maryland Republican Party for taking into consideration the idea of opening its primary elections to independent voters. This has been an issue I have been pressing for years.

A Republican candidate for Baltimore County executive has asked to recount ballots after he lost the party's primary by a margin of only 18 votes. Tony Campbell, of Towson, made the request Thursday, according to county election director Katie Brown. Following the June 24 primary election, Campbell barely trailed candidate George Harman, of Reisterstown. "It is important for citizens in a democratic republic to know that their votes count," Campbell said in a statement. More than 20,000 votes were cast in the race, and because the margin was so slim, officials did not finish counting all ballots until Monday.

It's this year's ''stealth election.'' No one seems to know much about it. And yet, come Sept. 13, Maryland's 670,000 Republicans will have to choose a candidate -- for the United State Senate, no less.You would think such an office would draw the cream of state Republicans. There is no higher federal office to run for in Maryland. And yet, the three GOP candidates who did file are virtual unknowns in this state. Their political experience in this state is minimal.Ruthann Aron has never run for office before.

Harford County voters appeared to return David R. Craig to the county executive's office after participating in what could be the lowest-turnout primary in decades. In early unofficial results, Craig appeared to win a second term as county executive after beating back a challenge from former County Council President Robert S. Wagner in the Republican primary. Republican Council President Billy Boniface ran unopposed for re-election, as did longtime Republican Councilman Richard Slutzky.

Republican congressional candidate Andy Harris could be right at home in Washington next year. If the veteran lawmaker from suburban Baltimore is able to ride a predicted Republican wave into the House, he would join fellow social and economic conservatives in a class of newcomers whose anticipated rise to power has already been likened to the so-called Gingrich Revolution of the mid-1990s. In Maryland, as elsewhere, the public is "in a cynical mood. It is an angry mood," said Harris.

Why was there so much shock and surprise at the low voter turnout in last Tuesday's primary elections ( "By the numbers: Tuesday's primary turnout among Maryland's lowest," June 25)? It had nothing to do with the time of year it was held or with the weak list of candidates. It was due to one thing and one thing only: Maryland is a one-party state. I voted in the Republican primary, but to my chagrin I already know what the outcome will be in November. Will I vote in November?

With school funding one of the top issues in the Carroll County Commissioners' race, Republican candidates who received the backing of the local teachers' union won in four of the five districts, ousting two incumbents in the process. But conservative incumbent Richard Rothschild - who lacked the union's support - was the leading voting-getter among all commissioner candidates with nearly all the precincts reporting. Rothschild held off a challenge from Barbara Biller, who had a slim lead after early voting was tabulated.

Perhaps the most hotly contested - or at least the nastiest - local race in the state this year is the Republican primary for executive in Anne Arundel County. Incumbent Laura Neuman, a political novice who was appointed to the job last year after John Leopold resigned in disgrace, is fighting a challenge from Del. Steve Schuh, who had been planning for this race before most people in Arundel political circles had even heard of Ms. Neuman. They are spending unprecedented sums of money for a primary in Anne Arundel, and most of it appears dedicated to tearing each other down.

Editorial from the Aegis | June 12, 2014
It's been more than a decade since all the voters of the county could vote for all the members of the county council. A key argument in favor of switching from countywide to in-district selection of county council members was that the smaller districts would allow for more grassroots campaigns. Rather than have to get a message out to a county of 250,000 — the theory went — candidates in a particular district would only have to reach about 41,500 people. Actually, the number of people needing to be contacted is even smaller than that as each district has roughly 27,500 registered voters.

With 10 weeks until the elections, the Republican primary for Anne Arundel county executive is heating up as candidates Steve Schuh and Laura Neuman trade barbs over spending and boast about their endorsements. Meanwhile, Neuman, the incumbent, recently lost her campaign manager. In an email to her campaign team this month, Neuman said campaign manager Ryan Terrill left to spend more time with his new wife. "He has realized that the incredible time commitment of a campaign does not lend itself to starting this new chapter in his life," Neuman wrote.
