The County Council appointed Carol Rubin to a full four-year term on the county’s Planning Board at its Thursday meeting.
Rubin was appointed in October to fill out the term of Natali Fani-Gonzales, who resigned as commissioner to run for council in the newly created 6th District.
“The council was delighted that Planning Board member Rubin reapplied to serve on the Planning Board for a full term, after completing a partial term in this role,” said Council President Gabe Albornoz (D-At Large) in a press release. “Her experience, professionalism and commitment to the job are outstanding. The council is grateful for her public service, and we look forward to continuing to work with her on important land use and planning matters that impact our entire community and the future of Montgomery County.”
Rubin was appointed following her retirement from the Planning Department, where she had served as a special projects manager.
She also “served as acting deputy planning director with oversight responsibility for the Divisions of County wide Planning and Policy, Management Services, Information Technology and Innovation and Research and Strategic Projects,” according to the release.
“We are fortunate to have Carol continue to serve on the Planning Board,” Planning Board Chair Casey Anderson said in a separate release. “Her legal and policy experience in land use, transportation, and parks has made her a valuable addition. I congratulate her on her reappointment and look forward to furthering our work to make Montgomery County even greater place to live.”
