Mizeur to Seek Public Financing in Md. Gov's Race

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Del. Heather Mizeur says she'll participate in the state's public financing system in next year's governor's race.

Mizeur, a Montgomery County delegate, said that she wants to run a grassroots campaign and remove the influence of corporate money from politics. She is proposing banning corporate contributions and donations from those who bid for state contracts.

Mizeur is badly trailing fellow Democrats Anthony Brown and Doug Gansler in fundraising.

Participating in the state's public financing system means Mizeur could qualify for $1 million in state funds if she agrees not to spend more than about $2.5 million in the primary.

Mizeur has so far reported about $380,000 in her campaign account.

    CAMBRIDGE, Md.- After weeks of discussion, the Maryland Avenue drawbridge in Cambridge will not be scheduled. That's a good news for Gary Smith, a waterman who works out of Cambridge Creek like many others. Smith says the drawbridge blocks the only exit to the creek, and should stay on demand to boaters."Drivers can work around it, but the watermen can't. I think it's an excellent thing (to keep the bridge on demand) and I hope the issue doesn't come up again." said Smith.One possible solutio...More
