Hogan's appeal to black voters goes beyond race [Letter]

What are black voters' priorities? Your recent article on the candidates' appeal to black voters offered the result of Mr. Hogan's polling on North Avenue: People said they wanted lower taxes above all else ("Hogan, Brown differ in message to black voters," Oct. 4).

A successful governor needs to excel in many criteria. Mr. Brown was not asked how he would lessen tax burdens. Nor was he asked if he felt he deserves higher office after making Marylanders experience the failed Obamacare system.

He would have taken credit if "MarylandCare" had worked. Unless Mr. Brown has taken classes in management to atone for his failure, could we put the merits of race aside for a while?
