Veteran prison warden Lloyd L. "Pete" Waters, a Democrat, has filed for Washington County Commissioner.
Employed with the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services for 34 years, Waters, 57, retired in 2003 as warden of the Maryland Correctional Institution south of Hagerstown - a position he held for more than 15 years.
Waters said he wants to see Washington County government stop doing business the same way it's been done for the past 40 years.
"We need a good debate or a summit on growth, because it affects water, sewer and schools," Waters said. "There are big water issues with wells and creeks which are low."
