4 vie to head MoCo Planning Board

By Washington Post Editors

The Montgomery County Council will interview four candidates Wednesday to replace county Planning Board Chairman Royce Hanson, whose term expires June 14. The five-member board oversees the $100 million agency that manages the county's development and parks.

The candidates are: Francoise Carrier, a lawyer who heads the county’s office of zoning and administrative hearings; Kensington Mayor Peter Fosselman, a civil engineer and principal of an engineering firm; Tedi Osias, lobbyist for Montgomery’s Housing Opportunities Commission; and former planning board vice chairman John Robinson, a lawyer with the federal energy regulatory commission. The full-time job pays $160,000 to $180,000.

Joseph Alfandre, a member of the board and the developer of Kentlands, an early “new urbanist” community in Montgomery County, has withdrawn his candidacy for board chairman. In a letter to the County Council, Alfandre cited “personal and family reasons.” He is out of the area and could not be reached by phone or e-mail.
