Governor OKs Neall selection to replace Cade


Gov. Parris N. Glendening has approved the nomination of Robert R. Neall to fill the state Senate seat vacant since John A. Cade's death last month.

The governor's endorsement was a formality after the Anne Arundel Republican Central Committee's selection of Neall last week.

The full committee voted 10-3 to pick the former three-term state legislator and Anne Arundel County executive for the $29,700-a-year post.

Neall, 48, will be sworn in Tuesday at a State House ceremony in Annapolis.

He also will assume Cade's assignment on the influential Budget and Taxation Committee when the General Assembly convenes next month.
