On February 6, Governor O’Malley appointed Wicomico County Council President Matt Holloway as the agricultural representative to the Maryland Sustainable Growth Commission.
Holloway said, “I’m excited about the opportunity to represent agriculture on this commission and ensure that our farming community has a seat at the table.” He is currently serving his first County Council term and was voted by his peers to serve as President for this session.
Established by the Maryland General Assembly in 2010, the Sustainable Growth Commission makes recommendations on growth and development issues. The 34-member commission, who represent local and state government, business and nonprofit organization sectors, consider ways to help implement laws and regulations concerning Maryland’s growth and development.
Holloway will begin his appointment at the commission’s meeting in March.
