Brown, Hogan offer two different paths, both leading nowhere [Letter]

Elections

So the primaries are over and a tiny fraction of the voters have chosen a retread of the O'Malley administration to run against a corporate Republican offering us the same old nostrums — tax cuts for businesses and the wealthy — that have failed America for the last 34 years ("The race is on: Hogan, Brown begin sparring in contest for governor," June 25).

How boring and predictable. Voters had a real choice this year in Del. Heather Mizeur's gubernatorial candidacy, but sadly not enough of them bothered to make the 10-minute visit to their polling station to cast a vote that would have made a difference.

They say voters get the government they deserve. So congratulations, Maryland, for voting for the two paths that we already know lead nowhere.

William Smith, Baltimore

    It's safe to say the election is over, and we are all anxious to see what "color" our state will be. Are we now red with a base of blue or still blue with a splash of red ("Republican sees spending as key for governor-elect," Nov. 14)?

    I read Thomas Schaller's column ("Race had a role in Hogan's win," Nov. 11) regarding Larry Hogan's win over Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown in the 2014 Maryland gubernatorial election. He basically states that the areas Mr. Hogan won had more white people then black.

    Race, racism, racist. I am so tired of hearing these words whenever a candidate loses or a policy is defeated ("Race had a role in Hogan's win," Nov. 11). Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown lost to Larry Hogan because Mr. Brown ran one of the worst campaigns in recent Maryland elections. He even...
