Marye Wells-Harley Named to Planning Board

Former Prince George's County Director of Parks and Recreation Marye Wells-Harley has been named to the Montgomery County Planning Board by a 7-1 vote. Council Member George Leventhal voted for Roberto Pinero. Wells-Harley received two votes when she applied for the Planning Board last year. She is a Silver Spring resident and was named one of Maryland's Top 100 Women by the Daily Record in 2004.

This may be the end of the road for Alan Bowser, who has unsuccessfully applied for the Planning Board this year and in 2006, 2007 and 2008. He also unsuccesfully applied for a WSSC appointment in 2007. When the Post's Ann Marimow reported on Bowser's failure to get the appointment last year, her Maryland Moment entry was deluged with angry anonymous comments slamming the Council for not appointing him.
