Mosner, Braase back in Commission saddle


William A. Fogle, secretary of the Department of Licensing and Regulation, confirmed yesterday that John H. Mosner Jr. and Ordell Braase have been reappointed by Gov. William Donald Schaefer to three-year terms on the Maryland Racing Commission.

Schaefer first appointed Mosner to the board in 1987. It is the second reappointment for Braase. He was originally named to the nine-man board by former Gov. Harry Hughes in 1984.

Schaefer is expected to name a new chairman of the commission to replace its current head, Dr. Ernest Colvin. Among the names prominently mentioned as candidates are Mosner, Carol McGowan or Dr. Allan Levey.

McGowan and Levey were just appointed to the board last year but already have assumed leadership roles in the panel's activities.
