Top Glassman Staffers Get New Jobs With County Government

    Harford County Executive Barry Glassman (R) announced Monday that the county government’s director of administration, Billy Boniface, will move within the office to serve as Glassman’s chief adviser, filling a vacancy within the county executive’s office.

    Boniface, who has served as the county’s chief administrative officer for the past five and a half years, since Glassman took over, will be responsible for recommending, planning, directing and managing all policy initiatives of the county executive.

    “As we emerge from the current COVID-19 crisis and rebuild the local economy, I am confident Mr. Boniface can help me complete the major projects I want to accomplish in my final two and a half years as county executive,” Glassman said in a statement.

    Ben Lloyd, currently a senior budget analyst with the county government, will be named acting director of administration and have his name forwarded to the County Council for confirmation in September, Glassman’s office said. Lloyd has been with Harford County government for 13 years.

    “Mr. Lloyd has extensive roots in Harford County along with impressive technical skills to keep our budget efficiencies updated and our financial plan strong as we continue to weather these uncertain times,” Glassman said.
