Commission Set Up for African Immigrants

Business leaders, a transportation planner, a media consultant, a pharmacist, a professor and a legislative aide are among the community leaders appointed by Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) today to head up Maryland's new Commission on African Affairs.

The 21 members were sworn in at the State House in Annapolis; they join similar government-appointed panels that oversee state efforts to help Asian, Latino and Middle Eastern immigrants.

The executive order signed by the governor highlights the state's need to promote the' "social,cultural and business interests" of African immigrants with a focus on community development.
