I am honored to say the Howard County Council reappointed me to the County’s Board of Appeals last night. I thank the Council for this remarkable experience and the trust and faith to do it for another five years.
I don’t get to write about the Board of Appeals here. Our matters are all “quasi-judicial.” This has the effect of making them practically off-limits for any discussion outside of the formal hearing environment. It’s kind of like being on a never-ending jury. Around Howard County, not talking about work is kind of a thing, anyway, so that’s okay. But if you ever have a random evening to spare, it’s worth coming up to watch us in action.
