Williams added to GOP committee
Dr. David Williams has been chosen to fill a vacancy on the Washington County Republican Central Committee.
Williams, a dentist, has lived in Washington County for 19 years. He served two terms on the Smithsburg Town Council and has served on the town's planning and zoning boards, and the county's zoning appeals board.
A Central Committee seat has been vacant since Ray Foltz resigned about a month ago, according to Chairwoman Penny Pittman.
Committee members are elected to four-year terms. All nine seats on the committee expire in 2010, Pittman said.
