Mattingly Appointed to Governor's Intergovernmental Comm. on Agriculture


LEONARDTOWN, Md. (Dec. 2, 2007)—St. Mary’s County Commissioner Thomas A. Mattingly has been appointed to the Governor’s Intergovernmental Commission on Agriculture.

His nomination for the Commission was forwarded to the Maryland Secretary of Agriculture by the Maryland Association of Counties (MACO). Mattingly currently serves on MACO’s Board of Directors.

The Commission was created by Executive Order in 1996 and formalized a year-long effort led by the Department of Agriculture to bring local officials, planning agencies, and farming interests together to address issues of concern. The Commission is charged with promoting the economic profitability of farming by ensuring that all appropriate state agencies work in a cooperative, coordinated manner with local government and industry groups.

Voting members are not state agency officials, but rather farm industry groups and local government interests.
