February 16, 1993

New Windsor resident Linda Cunfer has been appointed to the state Controlled Hazardous Substances Task Force, which will develop a strategy for reduction, treatment, reuse and disposal of hazardous waste.

Ms. Cunfer is board chairwoman of the New Windsor Community Action Project and a full-time political science student at Western Maryland College.

"Dealing with the growing problem of toxic and hazardous waste is a key element in a statewide waste management strategy," she said.

Others on the 23-member board include government officials, representatives from the cement, manufacturing and incineration industries, researchers, and experts in environmental health.

The task force, mandated by the General Assembly last year, is expected to report to the governor and legislature by October 1994.
