My endorsement: Standing up to the unions

By washingtonpost.com editors

By Michael J. Amery
Montgomery Village


My vote for governor will be for Robert Ehrlich. Maryland has a significant structural deficit problem that has been difficult to control because of the influence of public-sector unions on the political process. In a never-ending cycle, these unions have “picked” their management through the election process. This has led to one-party rule and an unsustainable compensation system for public employees across Maryland.

Electing Mr. Ehrlich governor is one step to solving this problem. Electing others at all levels of government who are not beholden to these unions is the next if we ever hope to turn Maryland around.

Readers are invited to make the case for their candidate in the Maryland governor's race in 200 words or fewer and e-mail it to letters@washpost.com with “My Endorsement” in the subject line. Please include a day and evening phone number and a note describing any connection you have to the candidates, their campaigns or Maryland politics in general. Responses will be posted on All Opinions Are Local through Oct. 22.
