Owens Out Of Race For County Executive

MarylandReporter.com is reporting that Janet Owens has decided to not enter the race for her old office. This sets up the election as a three way race between Joanna Conti (Democrat), John R. Leopold (Republican, and Mike Shay (Green) in November.  To date there have been no other aspirants and it appears that the Democrat and Republican primaries will be uncontested in this race.

From MarylandReporter.com:

Janet Owens won’t be running again for Anne Arundel County executive after months of exploring the race, Owens told MarylandReporter.com this morning.

“I feel somewhat ambivalent about it,” said Owens, who served two terms in the post. “I have a happy life. I would have to give that up” and run what would need to be a bruising, “factually negative” campaign against Republican incumbent John Leopold.
