Baker to tap former Curry aide for top post; other changes expected

Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) is poised to name a former top aide to Wayne Curry to be chief of staff.

Glenda R. Wilson, a vet­eran county official, will take over from Gwen McCall, whom Baker is shifting over to the Economic Development Corporation, to replace Kwasi Holman, who was not asked to stay on. She currently is paid $167,000.

Baker’s spokesman Scott Peterson said he could not confirm Wilson’s appointment, but other sources said it was imminent.

Wilson formerly was Curry’s chief of staff and a senior adviser while he was county executive from 1994-2002. She also worked for former County Council member Floyd Wilson, and has served as a community liaison in the county police department. For the past eight years, she has held private sector jobs.

Another new face in Baker’s inner circle is Brad Seamon, a former business executive in Greenbelt who was Baker’s campaign treasurer. Seamon, who is working on economic development issues for the moment, widely is viewed as the likely successor to acting chief administrative officer Mike Errico, but Seamon would say only that he’s a deputy chief administrative officer for now and that Errico still is entrenched firmly in the job.
