This political flyer was distributed in the Aberdeen area on Tuesday evening , October 15.2013. And Mary-Dulany James for Senate website went up in late September.
Delegate James would not run for the Senate as long as Republican Nancy Jacobs was Senator. In 2010 when the Dodgy Dagger circulated political rumors that Bob Ehrlich was considering putting Nancy Jacobs on he Gubanatorial ticket, Delegate James delayed until the last minute to file for re-election. The Dodgy Dagger suggested she was considering a run for the Senate if and only if Jacobs was out of the race. Jacobs earlier this year decided not to run for re-election in District 34 when redistricting removed Western Cecil County from her district. In the last election she lost Harford County to Athur Helton, but won reelection with the more Republican West Cecil County. Jacobs was also politically stung in her race for Congress against the popular incumbent Democrat Dutch Ruppersberger.
With Nancy Jacobs out of the race, Delegate James is in. Helton, redistricting and Ruppersberger pushed Jacobs out. Democrats will have to decide whether to reward James who watched and waited for her turn or reward Helton who fought the good fight that helped to finally push Jacobs out.
County Exec David Craig had his Repeal the Storm Water Reduction Fee bill introduced into the Harford County Council this week. He believes he has enough political morons like Councilman Joe Woods to push the repeal of the Harford County SWR Fees through.the County government. , Craig does not believe the State government will follow through with heavy fines and denial of state permits for his obstructionist violations of state environmental law. Craig borrowed this political tactic from Tea Party exremist Patrick McGrady, who said he would not pay the SWR Fees if he became Mayor of Aberdeen. McGrady borrowed the idea from Alabama Goveror George Corley Wallace who stood in the school house doors to stop Federal school integration.
Craig is a political fool, but the taxpayers of Harford County will have to pay for his illegal actions to gain media attention to his dismal and inept campaign…
The average score for Democrat delegates was 81%. The average for Republican delegates was 26%. That makes James-Dulany a Mugwump. * www.mdlcv.org

*McDonalds at Beards Hill& Rte 22 was Patrick McGradys Saturday HQ when he canvassed Aberdeen during his unsucccessful campaign for Mayor of Aberdeen. This may be McGradys opening shot in a new campaign for the House of Delegates against incumbentDemocrat Mary-Delany James. On another political front a co-conspirator at Campaign For Liberty-Harford County has attacked both Del James and fellow Republican Del. Glenn Glass for supporting a Hotel Tax for Harford County.
