Queen Anne’s County’s newest commissioner-at-large, James Moran, had his first meeting as commissioner on January 14, but was ready to begin his new position when he was sworn in on December 18, 2013.

From the article,

A resident of Queen Anne’s County since 2005, Moran is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and the head of Increte of Maryland Inc., a Crofton-based decorative concrete contractor. He also is a managing partner of Mid-Atlantic Pigments, a company dealing with colors for concrete projects.

In addition to his service on the planning commission, Moran also served on the county’s Economic Development Commission and was a member of the Task Force for Government Sustainability.

Moran filled the vacancy on the Board of County Commissioners after Steve Arentz was appointed to the Maryland House of Delegates. Delegate Arentz and Senator Steve Hershey were among those in attendance for Moran’s swearing in ceremony.

“I’ve known him for quite a while,” Hershey said. “I think he’s got a great business sense and I think he’ll be a real asset to the Board of Commissioners.”
