Running Unopposed

I'm generally of the opinion that it's a sad, sad day for democracy when we've got uncontested races for political office. Today, Monday, July 3, is the deadline to file to run, and as of right now, there are no opponents to the incumbents in 3 of the 7 County Council races. Districts 2, 3, and 5 have no Democratic (or other) challengers to the sitting Republicans, Ed Middlebrooks, Ron Dillon, and Cathy Vitale. If you would like to stand (or run) you have about 9 more hours to get to the State Board of Elections in Annapolis and declare your intent [pdf]. Pasadena, Linthicum, and Severna Park deserve a choice in November.
