Carr Gets Nod From O'Malley in District 18

As expected, Gov. Martin O'Malley has signed off on the appointment of Kensington Town Council member Al Carr to serve out the term of the late Democratic delegate Jane Lawton in District 18. Carr, a telecommunications businessman, is scheduled to be sworn in by House Speaker Michael Busch in Annapolis on Thursday.

In announcing his appointment, O'Malley praised Carr as a "dedicated public servant."

Carr, who ran unsuccessfully for the delegate seat in last year's primary, was selected by the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee from a field of five candidates. He is a board member of the District 18 Caucus and the African American Democratic Club of Montgomery County.

Carr becomes one of four Montgomery legislators appointed to the General Assembly in the last year.

All four of these seats, amounting to one full district of one senator and three delegates, should have been chosen by the voters in the Feb. 12 primary.
