    Maryland Green Party still struggles for a seat at the political table
    It’s important that I see Ian Schlakman’s office, because it’s apparently a first. It’s a tiny, corner room on the second floor of 218 E. Lexington—just above Sidebar, where a Jack and Coke after 6 p.m. goes for $6—with...

  • Best Politician

    A fresh-faced, 31-year-old Democratic former teacher from Montgomery County named Bill Ferguson made history in 2010, beating a political institution—George Della Jr., the scion of a political family who’d been in local elected offices since...
  • Best Exploitation of a Surname

    Trading on name recognition, legitimately or otherwise, is the oldest and most reliable tactic in the electoral playbook. Locally (for example), candidates named Curran, Conway, and Mitchell have always enjoyed a head start, even though they don’t...
  • Best Display of Chutzpah

    Julius Henson is a political scoundrel for the history books. Having served many years as a ruthless campaign aide for Democratic candidates including, notably, his intimate pal, City Comptroller Joan Pratt, Henson in 2010 hired out to former Republican...
  • Best Conaway

    What political family is more up in your Baltimore City life than the Conaways? Their campaign posters are plastered on vacants across the city, not to mention all over the Conaway home on Liberty Heights Avenue. Hell, if you got married here, Frank...

    Wandering Eye: Neverdon loses bid to get back on ballot, fear of the Black Guerrilla Family, pop-ups in the BBJ, and more
    Baltimore State’s Attorney candidate Russell Neverdon suffered another setback yesterday when a judge ruled that he had not collected enough signatures to get on the November ballot. As The Sun reports, Circuit Court Judge Martin P. Welch found that...

    Baltimore City sheriff candidate David Wiggins wigs out over Ray Rice domestic violence

    Mainstream Extremism
    Anne Arundel County’s Fifth Councilmanic District is the whitest, most-educated, and richest of the county’s seven districts, and its voters lean heavily in favor of Republicans. If that pattern holds true in November’s general...
