Candidates talk

May 20, 2002

When Republican Congressman Robert Ehrlich Jr. and Democratic Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend - both running for governor - came to Washington County on consecutive days last weekend, staff writer Andrew Schotz asked each a series of questions about these issues:

- Funding for a University System of Maryland Hagerstown Education Center, and its planned location at the Baldwin House complex in downtown Hagerstown.

- Parole for offenders sentenced to life in prison.

- Maryland's death penalty moratorium.

- Slot machines.

- The state's juvenile boot camps, which were shut down in 1999 because guards had abused inmates.

The questions and answers have been edited for space and clarity.
