Talbot County Names Verdery New Planning Officer

Mary Kay Verdery has recently been named Talbot County’s new planning officer. Verdery, who was serving as the interim since Sandy Coyman retired on September 30, has been appointed by the Talbot County Council.

The Star Democrat noted that Council President Corey Pack

said the council received many applications for the position, but Verdery’s appointment reflects a seamless transition in leadership.

“They worked together very well,” Pack said of Coyman and Verdery. “Sandy allowed Mary Kay to really use her talents and he put a lot of trust and responsibility on her.”

Pack said Verdery has the full support of the Talbot County Council.

In a prepared statement, Verdery said, “Accepting this position is an honor and privilege that will offer both opportunities and challenges. I am thankful to the Council for their confidence and look forward to working with the returning and new members of the Council on many important community issues. I am committed to working effectively and efficiently to accommodate the County’s growth while preserving the County’s resources and character. Our primary obligation is to serve the public interest.”
