The district's two incumbents running for re-election, Dels. John Cluster, 60, a Republican, and Eric Bromwell, a Democrat, deserve to be returned to office for their performance in Annapolis. That's especially true for Mr. Bromwell, 37, a second generation lawmaker, seeking his fourth term in the House. His support for marriage equality in a politically moderate district demonstrated backbone and leadership potential. Mr. Cluster, a former police sergeant, has been a conservative voice in the House and expert on matters involving police and corrections — he has been a leading voice on the Baltimore jail scandal — who has not resorted to the polarizing rhetoric of some in his party. As for the third seat, the choice is relatively easy — Renee Smith, 58, of Perry Hall, a Democrat and former aide to state Sen. Kathy Klausmeier. Ms. Smith is a constant presence in community meetings who has built up considerable good will in the process. She would hit the ground running in the General Assembly. Republican Christian Miele, 33, of Nottingham is also impressive. He has politically moderate views and pragmatic approach to issues, and we are hopeful the former college administrator and soon-to-be lawyer will seek elected office again.
