Lansdowne Improvement Association fills vacancy after president resigns

The Lansdowne Improvement Association shuffled its executive board of directors after its president, Brian Bailey, resigned Monday evening.

Following its bylaws, the association promoted Gary Koloski from first vice president to president, said Chris Koloski, Gary's wife and second vice president of the group.

Chris Koloski said she will take her husband's former position as first vice president.

The association also promoted Ernie Bailey, formerly one of the association's three trustees, to second vice president, she said.

A vote at the association's next meeting, schedule for March 12, will be taken to fill the vacancy among the trustees, Chris said.

Each of the promoted members, Chris Koloski said, will serve in their new roles for the remainder of the two-year term, which ends July 2013.

Gary Koloski said he aims for the association to act as "a voice for the community."

On his to-do list, he said, is getting more community participation, revitalizing Hammonds Ferry Road and keeping the community clean.

"That's what Brian believed in. That's what I believe in. And the board is very supportive of that," he said.

Bailey, a life-long Baltimore County resident and Lansdowne community supporter, had to step down as president after accepting a job in Phoenix, Ariz. with the Arizona Petroleum Marketers Association.

He is scheduled to start in that position March 1.
