County Executive Robert R. Neall appointed longtime aide Myron Wotring as his legislative liaison yesterday, replacing David Bliden.
The announcement marks Neall's first cabinet-level appointment since taking office last Monday. He has not filled a vacancy created by county Budget Officer Marita Brown's departure this month for a similar position in neighboring Prince George's County.
Bliden will continue working as an assistant county attorney.
Wotring, a former board member of the county's Community Action Agency, will represent the administration in dealings with the County Council, General Assembly, City of Annapolis and state and federal governments.
"Although I intend to be intimately involved with both legislatures, I do not know anyone who better knows my priorities and instincts, or can better represent the county's interests," Neall said in a press release.
Wotring, who served as Neall's executive assistant when he was the state's first drug policy coordinator, is also a former legislative aide to Neall and Delegate John Gary, R-Millersville. His other experience includes former regional director of the state Department of Education, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.

All current appeals boards members seeking reappointment should also submit resumes.
Applicants must be registered voters in Anne Arundel County.
The County Council will appoint all seven members by resolution on Jan.
