Coming Up in Maryland Politics
Coming up in Maryland politics this week:
The deadline for candidates to file to run for office in the Feb. 12 primary election is 9 p.m. today. By this morning, six of the state's eight incumbent U.S. House of Representatives members had drawn primary challengers. One of the hottest races is taking place in District 4, where U.S. Rep. Albert R. Wynn faces Fort Washington lawyer Donna F. Edwards and three lesser-known candidates in the Democratic primary. Edwards came close to defeating Wynn in 2006, in the district that includes parts of Montgomery and Prince George's counties.
County Executive Isiah Leggett will deliver his first "State of the County" speech at noon today in the Lobby Auditorium of the Executive Office Building in Rockville. The speech will be carried live on County Cable Montgomery.
The Montgomery County Council on Tuesday will counsider a proposal by council member Phill Andrews (D-Gaithersburg-Rockville) to require property sellers to disclose future property taxes, which often increase after a sale. The usual practice is to list current taxes on fliers describing the property, but Andrews says that is misleading. The council meets at 9:30 a.m. at 100 Maryland Ave., Rockville.
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY
The County Council will choose its new chairman on Tuesday. The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at the County Administrative Building, 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive Upper Marlboro.
