House of Delegates District 7: This district, which sprawls across eastern Baltimore and western Harford counties, has three seats, one of which is open, and a Republican primary that has drawn 13 candidates. Both incumbent delegates, Rick Impallaria and Kathy Szeliga, should be renominated, both for their experience and constituent work and their understanding of the district’s needs and how to successfully negotiate sometimes competing interests in the two counties. For the third seat – being vacated by Del. Pat McDonough who is running for Baltimore County office – we recommend that Republican voters choose between Michael Geppi, a former county councilman, and David Seman, a northwestern Harford community leader. Both have the knowledge, ability and understanding of politics to become good state legislators. There is no Democratic primary.
