Howard County Considers Adding Two More Seats to the Council

The Howard County Charter Review Commission is considering whether two more seats should be added to the county council.  As reported by, citizen opinions vary.

Highland resident John Taylor, who spoke at both recent hearings, supported adding more seats to the council. In fact, the job should be full-time, he said.

Former council member Angela Beltram, of Ellicott City, agreed that two added seats are needed and said they should be at-large seats, so those elected have a county-wide understanding of issues, not an “insular” view.
