ANNAPOLIS (AP) -- Marylanders will pay the same state property tax rate in the coming fiscal year as they have for the past four years. The state's three member Board of Public Works voted unanimously Wednesday to hold the line on state property taxes. Property owners will pay 11.2 cents in state property taxes per $100 of the full assessed property value. Public utilities will pay 28 cents in state property tax per $100 of assessed value. Individual counties set their own, separate property tax rates.

ANNAPOLIS tammyb@herald-mail.com The speech is over, and the reviews are in. And according to some critiques, Gov. Robert Ehrlich's State of the State address Thursday was the best of his administration. "So far," Del. Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington, quickly added. "I think it was straight talk; I think he threw down the gauntlet to the General Assembly," he said. Repeating his theme that "we've changed Maryland and this year, there's more to do," Ehrlich challenged lawmakers to approve his legislative agenda this year.

Gov. Martin O'Malley's plan to transfer $100 million from a fund dedicated for building roads and bridges is drawing strong backlash, but some lawmakers say the rhetoric is unfounded. In recent weeks, Republican leaders have taken turns blasting O'Malley for "raiding" the Transportation Trust Fund to help balance the state's budget. It's a term that's even crossed party lines, as Senate Majority Leader Rob Garagiola has occasionally used it to describe transfers from the transportation fund.

laurae@herald-mail.com ANNAPOLIS - Washington County residents voted overwhelmingly to elect Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., so it was fitting that a few local residents were in Annapolis on Wednesday as Ehrlich was sworn in to office. Sen. Alex X. Mooney, R-Frederick/Washington, who often was relegated to the back bench during his first term, had a front-row seat for the inauguration along with other Republican state senators. Sen. Donald F. Munson, R-Washington, has served in the legislature for 28 years.

This writer has never taken a course in marine biology and plumbing to her is a mystery best left to experts. She does know that she likes seafood and she likes it clean, abundant and affordable. She knows that some of the best come - or should be coming - from the Chesapeake Bay. Today's bay crabs are priced like solid gold.

MAUGANSVILLE - It's unusual, perhaps, to find such a large concentration of Democrats in Washington County these days. But while this might be a "red" county, several Democratic office-seekers descended Saturday on United Auto Workers Local 171 Hall on Maugans Avenue to, in the words of U.S. Senate hopeful Ben Cardin, "let people in Western Maryland know how important they are.

ANNAPOLIS -- The proposed dime-a-drink tax, which would fund health care initiatives and disability services, might have support in the General Assembly, but neither candidate for governor backs the proposal, campaign spokesmen said. "Ehrlich likes to protect the taxpayer every way possible," said Andy Barth, a spokesman for former Gov. Bob Ehrlich, who is fighting to regain the governor's seat he lost to O'Malley four years ago. And Gov. Martin O'Malley "is not inclined to support any tax increase," O'Malley spokesman Rick Abruzzese said.

Maryland needs to use financial common sense To the editor: Northrop Grumman just announced its decision to relocate its main headquarters from Los Angeles to Virginia. As a result, Maryland loses over 300 new jobs that could have belonged to Maryland families. The company considered relocating to Maryland, but they chose Virginia mostly as a result of Maryland's heavily taxed and regulated business environment. Right after taking office, Gov. O'Malley and the liberal majority in the legislature instituted the highest increase of taxes in Maryland history.

ANNAPOLIS -- Ranked by Gallup as the country's third-most Democratic state, Maryland has been a steep climb for any Republican candidate vying to win statewide office. Still, political experts and party leaders across the state think a GOP gubernatorial victory is possible in 2010. "I think Republicans can win in Maryland," said Todd Eberly, an assistant professor of political science at St. Mary's College. "But they've got to capitalize on current levels of voter discontent with the state of the economy in Maryland and nationally, and the budget deficit in the state.

"I was just reading that most of the Republican senators who no longer support Bush on Iraq are changing because they are up for re-election in 2008, and more Republicans will do the same.

After a career spent observing the political scene (and candidates making it up), this writer is capable of cynicism about both parties. Over the years she has been hard on some Republicans and worked 20-hour days for others. The point in saying this is her thought that political positions are best taken on the basis of good or bad, right or wrong - not on the basis of party affiliation. Her definition of a good candidate is one who seeks the best and works the hardest for citizens who are to be served - not the one who looks for maximum personal advantage.
