For Washington County Commissioner

July 13, 2006

Doris Nipps, a Republican, has filed for a second term as a Washington County Commissioner.

Nipps, 54, was elected to the board in 2002 and said she is eager to continue working to make Washington County a better place to live and work.

"It's a time of change, and there are a lot of things happening," Nipps said. "People want to live here, and they want to work here, and I would like to continue to be a part of that growth and that change in this community."

Nipps, who lives just outside of Hagerstown, began her community work in education at Old Forge Elementary School, serving as PTA president. She was elected president of Washington County Council of PTAs in 1989 and served on the Maryland State PTA Board of Directors from 1989 to 1994.

Nipps was elected to the Washington County Board of Education in 1994 and served until 2002.

Nipps said she has worked on many projects during her first term that she would like to continue working on, including the urban growth area around Hagerstown.

"Growth has really come, and we really need to look at how to manage that," Nipps said. "We've started this thing and now I'd like to continue to be a part of that and see the pieces come together."

Nipps works part time for Habitat of Humanity as a committee coordinator. She and her husband, Jim, have been married for 34 years and have twin 26-year-old sons.
