Casey Anderson, chair of the Montgomery County Planning BoardMaryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, acknowledged that he had a liquor cabinet in his county office and that he did drink, and shared drinks with colleagues.
He was docked four weeks’ pay by the Montgomery County Council for these actions, which are in violation of county policy.
In an email to MyMCM, Anderson wrote, “As I have said, I had a liquor cabinet in my office and occasionally shared a drink with colleagues after working hours. I have acknowledged that this was inappropriate and the County Council required me to give up four weeks pay as punishment.”
As to another allegation that Anderson engaged in inappropriate behavior and language while at work, Anderson replied, “While I have not seen the new complaint, the gist of it has been relayed to me, and based on my understanding, its claims are false.”
Council President Gabe Albornoz earlier said that the “council is extremely disappointed in the violations of Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) policy by Planning Board Chair Casey Anderson.”
