The Aegis/Sun reports that : “Del. Rick Impallaria, the chairman of the countys eight-member House delegation, said Monday morning that Craig’s (County Executive) nomination of Thornton, a  Democrat from Bel Air, may be INAPPROPRIATE after the delegation had already approved another Democrat, Randall Worthington, for reappointment to the board.

‘One of the concerns [was] that the county executive had sent us two Democrats for the liquor board, and the county is majority Republican”,Impallaria said. “The make-up of the board should represent what the voters had voted for.’ “
