Charles County Administrator Re-Elected President of Maryland County Administrator's Association

Charles County Administrator Paul W. Comfort, Esq. has been re-elected as President of the Maryland County Administrator's Association. Mr. Comfort was re-elected for an unprecedented fourth consecutive term by his peers at the recent Maryland Association of Counties Administrators and Attorneys Conference held in Annapolis, Maryland.

Mr. Comfort stated, I am humbled by the confidence shown to me by my peers from around the state and hope to use this term of office to continue to focus Maryland county governments' attention on issues of sustainability such as green buildings, water and wastewater reuse and bio fuels in addition to helping counties throughout our state grapple with declining revenues through improved governmental efficiencies and greater operational and financial accountability of internal and external agencies funded by county governments.

Maryland Association of Counties Executive Director David Bliden said of Comfort's re-election, Paul has demonstrated profound leadership during his past three terms of office for all of Maryland's Administrative Officers and I look forward to continuing to work together with him to help Maryland county governments learn best practices from each other and forge ahead in challenging times.”

“It is a pleasure to see Mr. Comfort be reappointed to a position that he has done an outstanding job in. It highlights Charles County's leadership role in the State,” said Commissioner President Wayne Cooper. He continued, “The Commissioners support Mr. Comfort in this endeavor and we are very proud of his accomplishments.”
