Tenneille Aleshire of Hagerstown was among four people appointed to a local family-services board Tuesday by a 4-1 vote of the Washington County Commissioners.
The lone dissenter? Tenneille's husband.
Washington County Commissioner Kristin B. Aleshire said after the meeting that he voted against the appointments because two of the appointees -- including his wife -- work for organizations related to the board's function, yet were being appointed to seats meant for the community at large.
The appointments were to the board of the Washington County Community Partnership for Children and Families, which coordinates a system of local services for children, youth and families.
Tenneille Aleshire, Lynn Rushing and Teresa Shifler were appointed to community representative seats, and Division of Parole and Probation senior agent Richelle Scrugham was appointed to a public agency representative seat.
Tenneille Aleshire works for Service Coordination Inc., a nonprofit agency that connects adults and children with disabilities with resources and services, Kristin Aleshire said.
