Occupation

Semiretired, owner of Ambiente Inc., a small business that fabricates and installs aviation fuel systems for government and for private businesses; volunteer LNG opposition team coordinator for the Greater Dundalk Alliance.

In the news

Beazley has helped organize Dundalk area residents who are opposed to a proposal to build a liquefied natural gas facility at the former Bethlehem Steel shipyard site in Sparrows Point. Opponents contend that a plant would be unsafe, and that it would be another in a series of unwanted projects foisted upon southeastern Baltimore County. Last week, more than 300 people attended a hearing in Dundalk on the LNG plant proposal.

Career highlights

Beazley held various clerical positions at Bethlehem Steel, including secretary and truck dispatcher, before her children were born. She was self-employed for several years as a broker, agent and carrier in the trucking and shipping businesses. She formed Ambiente in 1997.

Personal

Beazley, 55, is originally from Richmond, Va., and has lived in Dundalk 50 years. She has been married for 37 years to Charles Beazley, and they have two daughters, Lachelle Scarlato, 35, and Steffany Beyers, 33.

Philosophy

"At a certain age, all of us have a responsibility to make this world a little bit better than we found it. ... The people I worked for in the past had lots of money. Here, I'm in the community with my neighbors I love and care about with no money, no resources and willing to fight the battle. Dundalk is so important to me."
