Harford County Executive Glassman announces new appointments to administration

Harford County Executive Barry Glassman announced several new appointments to his cabinet Tuesday in response to two retirements and a departure from the administration.

The appointments have been forwarded to the Harford County Council, which votes to approve them, but the appointments were not on Tuesday night’s council agenda. Council President Patrick Vincenti said the appointments will likely appear on next week’s agenda.

Glassman named Jenny Jarkowski the acting director of planning and zoning, becoming effective Jan. 9. She was formerly the department’s deputy director and replaces Brad Killian, who is stepping down to spend time with his family before pursuing other opportunities, according to a statement from county government. Her salary will rise from $117,285.50 to $125,000.

Effective Jan. 30, Tiffany Stephens has been appointed acting personnel officer and director of human resources following the retirement of longtime director Jim Richardson. She previously served as the deputy director of human resources, according to the statement. Her salary will also rise from $114,224.48 to $125,000.

Karen Holt has been named the acting deputy director of the office of community and economic development after Steven Overbay’s December appointment as Cecil County’s director of economic development. Her salary will remain the same at $122,200.

“I thank Jim Richardson, Brad Killian and Steve Overbay for their service to the county and I offer them my best wishes for the future,” Glassman said in a statement. “I’m pleased we have the staff internally to step up into these leadership roles. I know they will serve the citizens of our county well and I look forward to their confirmation by the County Council.”
