Franchot Lures a Political Veteran To His Staff

Comptroller Peter Franchot (D) is beefing up his staff with another veteran of Maryland politics.

Len Foxwell, who served in the administration of Parris N. Glendening (D) for eight years and was a spokesman for two Democratic gubernatorial candidates, is set to arrive June 11 as a deputy comptroller.

Fowell will join a management team that already includes David Weaver, a long-time aide to former Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan (D), who now serves as Franchot's chief of staff.

Foxwell served as spokesman for Glendening's 1998 campaign and for Democrat Kathleen Kennedy Townsend's unsuccessful 2002 bid against former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R).

Foxwell, who was a supporter of Duncan's gubernatorial bid last year, currently works as an assistant to the president of Salisbury University for government and community relations. He previously worked as director of government relations for the Greater Washington Board of Trade, a pro-business group.

"It's an honor for me on so many levels," Foxwell, an Eastern Shore native who lives in Talbot County, said of joining Franchot's office. Foxwell is a long-time friend and admirer of Franchot, and "I've always respected the caliber of professionalism in the comptroller's office," he said.
