  • A referendum on referendums?

    A referendum on referendums?

  • Why let voters get in the way with democracy?

    It's really a shame! The Democratic Party led by Gov. Martin O'Malley would make it harder for referendums to make it on a ballot ("A referendum on referendums?" Nov. 13). It's plain to see that Democrats rule this state and they don't want voters...

  • Opposition to Dream Act overshadowed

    Opposition to Dream Act overshadowed
    Despite an aggressive petition drive to force a referendum on the state's Dream Act — which allows in-state tuition rates for the children of illegal immigrants — the campaign to defeat the measure in November remains a low-budget, grass-roots...
  • Redskins endorse yes on casino referendum

    The Washington Redskins football team endorsed a yes vote in the ultra-expensive gambling expansion referendum heading for the Maryland ballot this fall, contending the measure will bring thousands of jobs to Prince George's County. The NFL team, which...

    As referendum nears, faithful push for traditional marriage
    Bishop Willard E. Saunders Jr. quieted his Cherry Hill sanctuary Sunday morning, signaling for the music and the hallelujahs to stop so his words would come across clearly. "If something is perfect, it does not need changing," Saunders said, his image...

    Baltimore TV stations get boost from gambling ads

    Baltimore County Council Chairwoman Vicki Almond is questioning why County Executive Kevin Kamenetz hasn't spoken out about a local referendum campaign linked to developers. The petition drive, which seeks to put zoning decisions in Almond's and...
