LA PLATA, Md. (June 15, 2011)—Deputy County Attorney Sue A. Greer advised the County Commissioners today that she is resigning from her position effective June 30.
Ms. Greer informed the Commissioners that her husband has been called to active military duty overseas. As a result of her husbands impending deployment, Ms. Greer has decided to leave County Government so that she will be able to devote more personal time and attention to her children and join her husbands law practice.
I have enjoyed serving the County for almost 20 years, but I can think of no higher honor than supporting my husband in his service to our country by leaving my public service role to care for my family, said Ms. Greer.
Ms. Greers departure is a profound loss to the County, said Charles County Commissioner President Candice Quinn Kelly, speaking on behalf of the Board of Commissioners. She has worked tirelessly to serve the residents of Charles County. We appreciate her dedication, her sound counsel, and her adherence to the highest standards of legal and ethical practice.
Ms. Greers service to the County began in 1995, when she was hired as a specially assigned attorney to represent the Office of the Sheriff, the first appointment of its kind in the State of Maryland. Ms. Greer served the Office of the Sheriff as General Counsel for nine and a half years, advising on matters of constitutional law, criminal law, public information act requests, correctional issues, contract law, and labor law (to include collective bargaining issues).
In 2004, Ms. Greer accepted the challenge of undertaking Land Use law and transferred to the County Administration Building. She was appointed Deputy County Attorney in 2007. As Deputy County Attorney, Ms. Greer represented the Planning Commission, advised the Department of Planning & Growth Management, supported the County Attorneys Office, and provided guidance to all facets of County Government.
Prior to her tenure with the County Attorneys Office, Ms. Greer was an Assistant States Attorney for approximately four years, where she prosecuted cases in both the District and Circuit Courts of Maryland. Ms. Greer received her Juris Doctorate degree in 1991 from the University of Notre Dame and began her career in the Department of Justice Honors Program working in the North Central Regional Office for the Bureau of Prisons.
