These changes have already led to the announcement or filing of more candidates for Howard County legislative districts by non-incumbents than any other area in the state.

The election opportunities are so enticing that they have even drawn the serious interest of two former delegates, Republican Bob Flanagan, who represented Howard County in the House for 16 years, and Democrat Mike Gisriel, who hasn’t yet moved into District 12.
