Steven D. Powell, who had managed Carroll County's budget for nearly 15 years, became the commissioners' chief of staff yesterday. The previous board ran government without a chief of staff. County employees, who have said there is a need for more communication between the commissioners and themselves, recommended that the position be reinstated, said Commissioner Julia Walsh Gouge. "Our employees want one voice coming from the board," Gouge said. "The chief of staff can do that." Two weeks into their term, the commissioners agreed that there was no point in waiting to appoint a chief of staff, and Powell was a logical choice.

Polls show that Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend's name is recognized by about 95 percent of Marylanders. Alan Fleischmann is known by so few that nobody's ever bothered to ask, and he would just as soon keep it that way. Chief of staff is his job, but that title doesn't begin to describe his role in Townsend's professional life. Just about anywhere the lieutenant governor goes on public business, the relentlessly cheerful Fleischmann is likely to be at her side -- providing advice, support, unwavering devotion and occasional damage control.
