Former HoCo Exec Steps Down In Carroll

Our good friend (and former HoCo exec) Chuck Ecker is calling it quits as school superintendent in Carroll County, according to this Carroll County Times report. He's retiring after quite a run in public service.

Ecker, 80, is in the final school year of his second term as superintendent. He became superintendent in 2002, after serving two years as interim superintendent.

Prior to running Carroll schools, Ecker worked in Prince George’s and Howard county schools. He was also county executive for Howard County for eight years. In 1998, he was defeated by Ellen Sauerbrey in the Republican gubernatorial primary. Years ago, he got his start in education as physical education teacher for Carroll County.
