Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown jumped into the muck-infested waters first and in doing so lost my vote ("Brown for governor," Oct. 25).
Yet on seeing how alluring that path was, GOP gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan chose to jump into the dirty soup as well. In doing so, he brought himself down to Mr. Brown's level and surely lost votes as well.
With so many important issues facing Maryland, there is truly no time to waste with such juvenile antics. Not addressing the real issues before Election Day is risky; it means issues will be dealt with on the fly as one of these men holds office devoid of an agenda or a platform. Both candidates are an embarrassment.
It would be un-American for me not to vote next week, but if citizens choose not to I can understand why. It is without doubt a choice between the lesser of two evils.
