A year ago, Scott Bowling was appointed as an interim member to the Anne Arundel County Ethics Commission. The appointment was mostly ceremonial as he was finishing out the term of a member who resigned.

On March 19, the Anne Arundel County Council voted 6-0 to reappoint Bowling to serve a full four-year term. “In a county as conservative as Anne Arundel accompanied by all the turmoil that is going on with the county government these days an appointment to this commission is particularly significant,” Bowling, who is gay, told the Blade.
