Arnick successor picked STATE HOUSE REPORT

February 02, 1993|By Staff Report

Edward G. "Nipper" Schafer, a 63-year-old Rosedale trash hauler, was unanimously chosen last night to fill a seat in the House of Delegates' 7th District left vacant last week by John S. Arnick's elevation to a District Court judgeship.

Mr. Schafer's name now will be submitted to Gov. William Donald Schaefer, who has 15 days to appoint him to replace Mr. Arnick. Mr. Schafer was the only person nominated for the seat out of eight candidates presented last night to the county Democratic State Central Committee meeting at the Towson library.

Asked during his speech about the environmental implications of the trash he hauls, the 43-year veteran of Dundalk's political wars said, "There's a lot of pros and cons about trash. Nobody wants it, but everybody's got it."
