The Anne Arundel County Council made history Monday with its unanimous vote to nominate Deirdre Hendrick to the county library board of trustees. Hendrick could become the first openly transgender member of the board.
The Cape St. Claire resident still has to be approved by the Anne Arundel County Public Library Board of Trustees. That decision is expected to take place June 20.
If appointed, Hendrick would serve a three-year term.
