Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman's transformation of departments within the county government continued this week, as two more people were replaced.
A press release from Neuman's office announced the appointment of two new members to the Constituent Services team. The release did not mention any dismissals, but The Maryland-Gazette reported the appointments came with the removal of two constituent services specialists.
Mark Chang and Kelsey McConkey, both of whom represented north county, are no longer county employees, according to The Gazette.
Neuman announced Eastport resident Hope Stewart will represent south county and Annapolis, while Amy Leahy will represent her hometown of Severna Park and west county. North county will be temporarily represented by a veteran constituent services employee.
"Our primary purpose is to provide service to citizens, and Hope and Amy will bring energy and commitment to addressing the needs of our community," Neuman said in the press release. "They are very familiar with the areas they are serving. They are an extension of my philosophy to provide responsive and professional service."
Here is a rundown of the cuts and additions made under Neuman:
- Jonathan Hodgson, county attorney (acting county attorney is David A. Plymyer)
- Erik Robey, chief of staff
- William Hyers, camera system monitor
- William Ryan, director of information technology
- Carla Sagerholm, executive administrative secretary
- Brenda Reiber, director of constituent services
- Mark Chang, constituent services representative (north county)
