Alderman Gilmer is voted out as chairman of housing panel

February 25, 1994

Annapolis Alderman Samuel Gilmer has been voted out as chairman of the City Council's Housing and Community Development Committee.

The Ward 3 Democrat had held the post for eight years, but Thursday night the other two members of the committee voted for a change.

M. Theresa DeGraff, a Republican representing Ward 7, voted to support Wayne C. Turner, a Republican representing Ward 6, who had nominated himself.

In the past, the mayor has appointed the committee chairmen. But this year, the council members noticed that the city code gives the mayor the power to appoint members to council committees, but that the committees have the right to elect their own heads.

The Housing and Community Development Committee is responsible for overseeing Community Development Block Grants and other housing issues.
