“Serving Governor O’Malley and the State is an honor,” said Secretary Wilson. “The Governor is a leader with a great vision for Maryland’s environment. Restoring the Bay will be a win-win for the State and its economic future, and the Governor’s approach to frequently and routinely measuring progress of the Chesapeake Bay restoration is right on target and will make the difference.”
“I want to thank Shari Wilson for her service to the citizens of Maryland,” noted Governor O’Malley. “Her leadership to forge consensus for Maryland’s approach to climate change and reducing stormwater pollution, as well as her efforts to increase efficiency and accountability within the agency are to be commended. Shari brought an in-depth knowledge of environmental and public health issues to MDE, and her expertise will be missed.”
Wilson will step down as Secretary of the Department effective December 6, 2010. Wilson made a personal decision not to continue for a second term.
