Brooks eliminated in District 3 race

September 16, 1998

Timothy Brooks was the odd man out Tuesday in the Republican primary race in Maryland House of Delegates District 3.

The 3,198 votes cast for Brooks placed him fourth among the four Republicans seeking their party's nomination to run in the Nov. 3 general election. Only three GOP names will be placed on the ballot.

The Republican nominees include: incumbent Del. Louise V. Snodgrass, who received 5,929 votes in complete but unofficial results; Joseph R. Bartlett, the son of U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett, who received 5,618 votes; and William M. Castle, chairman of the Frederick County Republican Central Committee, with 4,159 votes.

Because there were only three Democrats on the primary ballot, all will advance to the general election. They include: incumbent Del. Sue Hecht, D-Frederick/Washington, who received 5,105 votes; Richard L. "Rick" Stup, a member of the Frederick County Planning Commission, with 3,916 votes; and David P. Koontz, who received 3,553 votes.

District 3 includes communities in the northern and northeast parts of Washington County and the western half of Frederick County, including the city of Frederick.

The general election will determine which three candidates will represent the district and serve four-year terms in the legislature.

Members of the House of Delegates currently make $29,700 a year, but are scheduled to receive a raise of $1,809 over the next four years.
