Campbell Named To Revenue Authority

Owner of realty company would become first African-American on the board in nearly six years.

It took nearly a year but County Executive Kevin Kamenetz has found a replacement for one Baltimore County Revenue Authority board member.

The appointment leaves one more opening on the board. Les Pittler, a Timonium attorney, announced two weeks ago that he was .

If confirmed by the County Council, Campbell would become the first African-American on the board since William Jews, the former Blue Cross Blue Shield president and chief executive officer left the board in 2006.

Campbell is a graduate of the Realtor's Institute. He earned a certificate from the Allan Berman Real Estate Institute of Johns Hopkins University, according to a biography released by the county.

The council could consider Campbell's appointment as early as this evening—it is not yet listed on the agenda.

This is man whom served on the Board of hospital, resigned, then attempted to represent the hospital in its private transactions. When the hospital denied paying him a commission, he sued them for (+/-) $200,000. The Revenue Authority needs leaders with above standard moral principles and not more people who exploit gray areas for personal gain. Given a year to search, the recent business and scrutiny of the Board, this is NOT a good pick.
