Absence of Character and More

Today Montgomery County Councilmember Tom Perez (from the Post)

received a strong endorsement from Curran's predecessor as Maryland attorney general, Stephen Sachs, who served two terms from 1978 to 1986.
"I am drawn to Tom Perez because of what I will call, simply, character," Sachs said. "Character is difficult to define, but it is palpable nonetheless. You know it when you see it, and you notice when you don't."

Gee, I wonder who Sachs was talking about?

As you look toward September and then November, you might want to take a look at the Gazette’s lists of most and least effective legislators. You’ll notice that D20's Ida Ruben is one of the least effective legislators in Annapolis.

And MoCoProgressive points readers to a Gazette article on our local school board:
"Board of Education member Gabe Romero won't be running again. Teach the Facts says, "It was never very clear where Romero stood on the sex-ed issue." Then again, a leader would have taken a stand one way or another."

I love it when people talk up my blog.

I don't know about you, but I tend to agree with Sachs. Character is too rare among our leaders these days.

But saying that makes me sound like a conservative, huh?

Martin Luther King once dreamed of the day when we would judge a man by the content of his character, not the color of his skin. Another conservative! Who knew?
