Carroll Commissioners have nominated George J. Maurer of Manchester for a five-year term on the county Property Tax Assessment Appeals Board.
Gov. William Donald Schaefer must approve the nomination, Commissioner Elmer C. Lippy said yesterday.
Mr. Maurer is an owner of Maurer & Miller Meats in Manchester. His wife, Janet, was Mr. Lippy's campaign treasurer in 1990.
"It's a political choice," Mr. Lippy said. "Every other commissioner does the same as I do. We do give political consideration."
The three-member board hears property assessment appeals.
