Washington County Board of Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook is seeking a fourth term in office.
Snook, 44, said he enjoys being commissioner and wants to continue working on some of the issues and projects already under way, such as lessening the county water and sewer debt, airport improvements and the planned state university center for Hagerstown.
The planned University System of Maryland Education Center for downtown Hagers-town is expected to be built with state funds, but Snook said the county probably will help pay for a $4.4 million plan to add parking and widen alleys around the school site.
Snook, a Republican, said the county should continue funding improvements at the Hagerstown Regional Airport, especially the planned runway extension. He said the extension will cost $35 million to $40 million. The federal government will pay for most of the project, but the county will be called on to contribute $2 million to $3 million, he said.
