XX OO From Sue and Joe

Two state Delegates send Valentine's greetings to area residents.

Readers of the electronic version of the Baltimore Sun missed out on a special Valentine's Day message from two Baltimore County delegates.

About 60,000 subscribers of the daily paper from the Baltimore City to Phoenix were greeted yesterday with a sticky-note greeting on the front of the morning paper from Republican Dels. Sue Aumann and Joe Boteler.

"We're having a good time with it," Aumann said. "We're just trying to get our names out there in the new district."

Aumann currently represents the 42nd District, which stretches essentially from the city line north to Timonium and picks up portions of Pikesville and Parkville. Boteler represents the 8th District, which includes Perry Hall, Parkville and Overlea.

Through the magic of redistricting, the two have made a political love connection of sorts and will run in the newly drawn District 42B—a new two-member district—which picks up Boteler's neighborhood near Carney, as well as Timonium before heading north toward Pennsylvania.

Aumann and Boteler are each seeking one of the two seats in a district that also has incumbent Republicans Wade Kach and Bill Frank.

"We're officially running together," said Aumann, who has run with Frank since the two were first elected in 2002.

This isn't the first time Aumann and Boteler have stuck an ad on the front of the morning paper. The two did something similar, minus their pictures, during the holiday season.

Aumann said they'll do another around Easter.

So will they be in bunny suits?

"No bunny suits," Aumann said. "But it will be Egg-ceptional."

Wish we had a "like" button Nick. That made me chuckle out loud here in the State House press room.

Actually 42B does not absorb part of Parkville--It absorbs part of Carney. This said that was a clever idea that Sue Aumann and Joe Boteler had. I really liked having all of Carney in District 8, but life goes on according the the wisdom of politicians. I already know Joe and I welcome Sue Aumann.

For Easter, they should put their faces on some marshmallow peeps with the caption, "We're like two peeps in a pod."
