ROCKVILLE, Md., March 7, 2011—Montgomery County Councilmember Nancy Floreen (Democrat—At-Large) has been named one of “Maryland’s Top 100 Women” by the Baltimore-based Maryland Daily Record. This marks the third time the legislator has received the honor.

The award recognizes outstanding achievement by women as demonstrated through professional accomplishment, community leadership and mentoring. The 15th annual awards ceremony will be held on Monday, May 9, at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore. As a three-time recipient of the award, Councilmember Floreen also will be inducted into the Circle of Excellence during a special ceremony at the event.

“I’m honored to be selected as one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women,” said Councilmember Floreen. “It is important that women share their experiences and talent with one another as a way of mentoring new leadership and highlighting all that women are doing. I am delighted that The Daily Record has included me in such an accomplished group of women who are making a difference in their communities.”

Councilmember Floreen, the former mayor of Garrett Park and a former member of the Montgomery County Planning Board, is now the chair of the Planning, Housing and Economic Development Committee of the County Council. While serving as Council president in 2010, she led the Council to pass of one of the most difficult budgets in decades.
