LA PLATA, Md. (May 08, 2008)—On Monday, the Charles County Commissioners announced that Alex J. Naar was no longer employed as the Director of Emergency Services for Charles County. They also announced that they appointed William (Bill) Stephens as the interim director.
It was originally announced in early February that Naar would assume the position on March 10.
We wish him well in his future endeavors, and thank him for his contributions over the past few months, said Commissioner President Wayne Cooper in regards to Naar's departure.
