Tomorrow, D.C. and Maryland voters will cast ballots in the Republican and Democratic primaries. In the District, Mayor Anthony A. Williams is seeking the Democratic nomination as a write-in candidate. None of the other Democratic candidates has comparable experience to the incumbent nor the leadership sensibilities to continue helping the nation's capital prosper. The District has received all manner of accolades during Mr. Williams' four years as mayor. The quality of life for residents of all walks has improved noticeably. The Washington Times endorses with enthusiasm and confidence Mr. Williams in the Democratic primary.
Rep. Constance A. Morella was elected to Congress in 1986. Since then, she has proven herself a moderate Republican in the House and a bread-winner for the state of Maryland as well as her home turf, Montgomery County. The Times endorses Mrs. Morella in the Republican primary.
In neighboring Prince George's County, Audrey Scott, a member of the County Council, is seeking the Republican nomination in the race for county executive. Mrs. Scott knows not only the ins and outs of county politics, but has more than 30 years of experience on the local, state and federal levels. The Times endorses Mrs. Scott in the Republican primary for county executive.
