Story | Feb 16, 2015 | 7:55 AMThe inimitable Frank Conaway Sr., the longtime elected clerk of the Baltimore City Circuit Court and scion of an enduring and enigmatic political dynasty, has died in his sleep at 81 years old. The Sun's Jacques Kelly wrote the paper of record's obituary, which covers the bases well. An email from Baltimore bailbondsman Mark Adams, a longtime Conaway friend, shares additional, insightful details. Conaway Sr. "was old enough to know hard-core, Jim Crow racism, but positive enough to overcome it and become the highest vote getter in the city," Adams writes, despite "preferring retail politics" and "outdated ways" rather than the internet, adding that it reportedly "drove Martin O’Malley crazy that this guy, with no money, could get more votes than he could." In 2011, when Conaway Sr. displayed a gun after anti-Conaway activist Adam Meister, a prolific runner, showed up at his house and allegedly kicked at him, Adams remembers Conaway Sr. having a funny response: "He told me, 'I'm still pretty fast, but that guy really could run. I couldn't catch him if I wanted to. He's crazy, but he sure can run fast.'" (Van Smith)
