Republican Del. Wade Kach has formally announced he will challenge Baltimore County Council Todd Huff next year. “When I look at the Third District, I see a need for an experienced, tested legislator to deal with the challenges we face,” Kach, who was first elected in 1974, said this week in a statement. “I believe that by moving from the House of Delegates to the County Council, I can bring the kind of responsive public service that the citizens want and need.” Huff, a Lutherville Republican, was elected to the council in 2010.

The former owner of the Senator Theatre declared his candidacy Thursday for president of the Baltimore City Council, saying he wants to lead the body he called "a sorry crew. " Tom Kiefaber, who lost the historic theater founded by his grandfather to foreclosure last year, criticized city leaders and the local news media, and compared his candidacy to the "Arab Spring" that is prompting protests in the Middle East.

Howard County's longest-serving police chief, Wayne Livesay, will retire May 31 after more than eight years in command to devote himself full time to running for County Council, he said yesterday -- the same day he received a legal opinion saying he would have to resign to avoid violating federal law. "I was up all night last night, because I knew today was coming. It's been a rough couple days [emotionally]. This has been my life," he said. Livesay, 54, who joined the Howard force more than 34 years ago, said he had decided on his last day months ago but announced it shortly after receiving word from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel that he must resign by June 2 or be in violation of the Hatch Act, which bars political activity by federal employees.

Is it too early to start forecasting the 2010 election? Perhaps, but Harford State's Attorney Joseph I. Cassilly stoked the flames Wednesday when asked about the political future of his brother, Robert, the County Council representative for Bel Air who was activated for duty in Iraq this week and will not be able to run for re-election in the fall. Joseph Cassilly, an Army ranger who was paralyzed during combat in Vietnam and is finishing his sixth term as county state's attorney, said his brother will receive newfound respect as a politician should he run for office four years from now. "After he comes back from an overseas assignment, he'll have that many more qualifications and that much more bigger of a constituency," he said.

After 34 years of enforcing the law in Howard County, Police Chief Wayne Livesay is "seriously considering" retiring to run for the sprawling western county's District 5 County Council seat. "I have not made a final decision," Livesay said yesterday , though he expects to make up his mind in the next several weeks. "This is a big decision for me. I'm very close." He added, "If I run, I'll probably run as a Republican." Livesay was a registered Republican from 1969, when he graduated from Glenelg High School, until 2002, when he became a Democrat to help support the re-election of County Executive James N. Robey, also a Democrat, and out of disagreement with Republican positions on gun control.

There has been political posturing against a popular mayor. There have been demands for pet projects in exchange for votes. Tempers have flared, muscles have been flexed, and a significant legislative defeat has appeared imminent. The City Council debate swirling around Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley's plan for a $305 million publicly financed downtown hotel is just the type of legislative drama that O'Malley once relished as a Northeast Baltimore councilman. But in six years as mayor, O'Malley has rarely endured the level of resistance that the council mounted against his plan for a publicly financed headquarters hotel for the Baltimore Convention Center.
