Vacant Montgomery Planning Board seat filled
Update, 5:15 p.m.: County Council spokesman Neil Greenberger
said council member Roger Berliner's vote was incorrectly recorded, and that Berliner says he voted in favor of Dreyfuss, which would make the official vote 7 to 2.
Dreyfuss, 66, a Republican, will fill out the remainder of the term left vacant by the death last year of Jean Cryor, also a Republican. The vacancy had to be filled by a member of the same political party.
Dreyfuss was approved on a 6 to 3 vote. Council members Phil Andrews (D-Gaithersburg-Rockville), Roger Berliner (D-Potomac-Bethesda) and Marc Elrich (D-At Large) backed Kenneth Hurdle, who has been active in efforts to build community support for a major redevelopment of the White Flint area.
The part-time position as a planning commissioner pays $30,000. The planning board acts as the land use adviser to the Montgomery County Council, and helps supervise the $100.million planning and parks departments budgets. Commissioners also serve as members of the bi-county Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission, with their counterparts from Prince George's County.
