Chevy Chase Village Will Get Second Shot At Ethics Exemption — Chevy Chase Village will get a second hearing before a state ethics board in March to try for an exemption from ethics rules for its Village Board members. Two members of the Village's seven-member Board resigned last year after learning they would have to disclose detailed financial records under a ramped up state law. [The Gazette] Ervin Looks To Be Joining Crowded County Executive Field — Silver Spring County Councilwoman Valerie Ervin says she's in serious discussions with two national Democratic campaign operatives about running her prospective 2014 county executive campaign. Ervin would likely join fellow council members Phil Andrews (D-Gaithersburg), George Leventhal (D-At large) of Takoma Park and former County Executive Doug Duncan (D). County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) has yet to announce if he intends to run for a third term. [Washington Post] Top Maryland Republican Not A Fan Of Purple Line Project — Maryland House Minority Leader Anthony O'Donnell (R-St. Mary's, Calvert Counties) said citizens can't take more taxes that would help raise money for transportation projects such as the Purple Line. He also said too much state transportation money is spent on mass transit that doesn't benefit people living in rural areas who don't use it. [Baltimore Business Journal] New Chair, Vice Chair For Citizens Advisory Board — Marc Korman and Jad Donohoe were elected chair and vice chair, respectively, of the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board on Monday. The group meets monthly and advises county policymakers on issues in Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Potomac.
