Airport panel pick pleases north county

March 24, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

North county leaders say they are pleased with the appointment of an Old Mill resident and retired high school president to the Baltimore-Washington Airport Commission.

Gov. Parris N. Glendening announced yesterday the appointment of William P. Wentworth, 56, to the commission, making him the first county resident to serve on the six-member board.

"He is familiar with north county and the residents, and I am sure that Mr. Wentworth will listen to our concerns," said Susan March, president of the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association.

Lewin Maddox, chairman of the Glen Burnie Improvement TTC Association's airport committee, also said he is happy with the appointment.

"I don't know the man, but he does seem qualified and I presume he is a good choice," he said.

Wentworth, who could not be reached for comment, is a member of the Village of Olde Mill Community Association, a youth league coach, commissioner of the Greater Glen Burnie Junior Sports League and treasurer of the Old Mill Swim Club.
