State Sen. James N. Robey says there was no grand ambition, no plan to ascend to where he now sits as majority leader of the Maryland Senate, or to have made the unusual leaps from Howard County police chief to county executive to legislator. Things happened, he said, one thing led to another, people egged on a sometimes reluctant candidate. He's 73 now, and a couple of weeks ago, because it was Maryland Day, he put on a black-white-red-and-gold state flag necktie to go with the white shirt and gray suit and stepped out of his overnight accommodations at the Calvert House on State Circle to begin one of his last days of his last legislative session.

Lots of politicians running for election shade their positions to seem friendlier to whatever group they are addressing, but don't count Democratic state Sen. James N. Robey among them. The former county executive and police chief told a county business group Wednesday that he doesn't favor repealing the 2007 state sales tax increase Republicans are campaigning against. He also reminded them that as county executive, he raised local income taxes despite predictions of doom. If the sales tax is reduced, Robey said, the state would see revenue drop by $600 million.

Near the cornfields on Old Frederick and Sand Hill roads in Marriottsville stands a slice of suburbia, and there's often trouble brewing. Some drunk might be getting out of hand at The Greene Turtle. An armed robber could be holding up the Columbia Bank, or a couple's argument boiling over in a townhouse. Always plenty of police around to handle it, though, even if some of them still have on their training wheels. They're learning or refreshing their skills, and doing it in settings dressed up to simulate the world outside the James N. Robey Public Safety Training Center in Howard County.

Howard County legislators said this week that they believe the General Assembly will need to make adjustments to a state-mandated stormwater management fee imposed on Howard County and nine other Maryland jurisdictions.

" Robey and six other members of the county delegation spoke at the Howard County Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative wrap-up breakfast Thursday in Columbia.

With the announced near term political retirement of now state Sen. and former County Executive James Robey, it is worthwhile to consider what might be his most enduring legacy, namely raising Howard County state income tax rates from one of the lowest to the highest in the state. In particular, in light of the many tax rate increases in other areas imposed on Howard County residents since that time, and the presently proposed increase in real estate taxes before the County Council, it may be asked whether these increases could have been prevented or greatly reduced with a different set of decisions about what the future of Howard County would be with respect to development.

After a dozen years of election frustration and failure, Republicans in Howard County are looking for a way back to political prominence. Things have only gotten worse since the GOP lost the county executive's post to Democrat James N. Robey in 1998. In the Nov. 2 election, in which many Democrats elsewhere were defeated amid strong anti-incumbent sentiment, Ken Ulman was re-elected to a second term as county executive. Democrats also hold four of the five County Council seats, plus eight of 11 General Assembly seats from Howard, keeping the party in control of the county's House and Senate delegations.
