Anne Arundel executive plans to maintain fast pace of change

Steve Schuh was gung ho when he took office as Anne Arundel County executive 13 months ago, and he thinks he’s made a good start implementing his campaign promises and transforming county government. In an interview in his Annapolis office last month, he said he’s not planning to slow the pace of change. Two major consultant reports are due out soon. One will call for a major revamping of land use, licensing and permits and the other will recommend overhauling the procurement process that Schuh describes as “notoriously inefficient” and “wasteful.”

The difference was evident in the inaugural ceremonies of the three counties.

Historic Republican gains in Maryland as Hogan wins; GOP picks up execs, House and Senate seats

Maryland Republicans made historic gains in Tuesday’s election. Larry Hogan Jr. became just the third Republican elected governor in the past 50 years, winning by almost the same 51.5% margin and carrying almost the same number of counties as Gov. Bob Ehrlich, the last Republican chief executive 12 years ago. Sen. Allan Kittleman became just the second Republican Howard County executive in its history, and Del. Steve Schuh, as expected, kept the Anne Arundel County executive office in GOP hands. On the Lower Shore, Bob Culver defeated Democrat Richard Pollitt, the first Wicomico County executive.

Rascovar column: GOP has a Peroutka problem

Just what the Maryland Republican Party didn’t need — a theocratic, paleo-conservative candidate who has renounced the General Assembly as ungodly and is deeply involved in a group advocating a white, Christian nation of the South.

Worst of all for the Maryland GOP, this 61-year-old, Bible-spouting secessionist with a bizarre view of government is the favorite to win the November election in Anne Arundel County’s Broadneck Peninsula-Severna Park-Arnold councilmanic district.

Will Anne Arundel voters let George Johnson do it — or Steve Schuh?

June’s culmination of the fierce fight for Anne Arundel County executive between Republicans Steve Schuh and incumbent Laura Neuman may have given the impression that it was a one-act play and that the final curtain is down. But there’s now a second act in November, with Democrat George Johnson coming on stage to contest Schuh. It’s a return performance for Johnson, who lost the race for county executive to John Leopold in 2006 by 3,900 votes.

Labor Day politics: Bongino keeps punching, writes book on Obama ‘bubble’; Sarbanes ‘sympathetic with president’ on Syria move

Dan Bongino, last year’s Republican U.S. Senate nominee, held a major fundraiser in Frederick County Friday night in what he concedes is “going to be a tough election” to unseat freshman Democratic Congressman John Delaney in the 6th District.

Guzzone won’t run for county executive; Schuh definitely will

Democratic Del. Guy Guzzone has decided not to run for Howard County executive as many expected, but instead to campaign again for the legislature, possibly for the state Senate. Republican Del. Steve Schuh fulfilled everyone’s expectations Thursday night by announcing a race for Anne Arundel County executive, even though he will likely face new county executive Laura Neuman in a Republican primary as well as County Councilman John Grasso.

Legislator wants to reduce risky investments in pension fund

A legislator who has spent his career as a financial advisor and investor is seeking to force the state pension system to limit what he sees as risky investments in private equity, hedge funds and other alternative assets.

The investment managers at the State Retirement Agency told the House Appropriations Committee Tuesday that Del. Steve Schuh’s legislation, HB819, will mean lower returns on investment and less diversification for the $38 billion fund that pays for pensions for teachers and state employees.
