A 15-year delegate from Brooklyn Park, Cadden serves as the only Anne Arundel County legislator on the House Capital Budget subcommittee.

D'Adamo said he would not seek re-election when his term expires in 2011. The seven-term City Council member made the announcement Saturday during a ceremony that named the 3900 block of Eastern Ave. in his father's honor and designated May 2 Nicholas C. D'Adamo Sr. Day in the city. "You know inside when it's time to move on," said D'Adamo, 51. "I wanted to make the decision when my mom and dad are here with me. "When you do something for seven terms, it's a lot of emotions," D'Adamo said.
