    Local elections

    Who you all liking?

    I was surprised to see Ted Belleavoine challenging Cameron. I'm unaware of any reason to change Sheriffs - I think Tim has been a pretty good one.

    St Mary's Co deputies don't harass people the way they do in Calvert with speed traps, etc. Tim is doing a great job. Don't change what's not broke.

    You mean other than the drug problems, rise in personal thefts, gun violence, store robberies, and the continued uprising pattern in traffic accidents/collisions?

    Yeah, other than all that stuff... he's a peach

    So, you have no individual thoughts, just party-line (regardless of quality)?

    Maybe they are just too new to the area to have an informed opinion about the candidates. Nothing wrong with admitting you don't know it all yet. I would rather someone vote along party lines, then not vote at all, regardless of their choice of political party.

    The local paper usually comes out with interviews with the candidates and their stand on things.

    Yes and they are all for getting rid of crime...fixing the traffic problems...and making the schools better.

    Never much in the way of specifics to speak of...just generalizations.
