West Towson resident Tim Tenne spent 20 years in the Air Force. During his service as a pilot and colonel, he moved 13 times, so he has seen a lot when it comes to the different ways in which communities are managed, governed and grown. He and his wife, Andrea, have two sons in college; have started a business, T3 Run – a running event service; and he is working with the Federal Aviation Administration. The Tennes are happily settled into their long-term home, and Tim wants to help ensure the best and brightest path for Towson’s future.

Tim was recently chosen as chairman of a new Baltimore County Committee tasked with looking at the logistics of making Towson a separate council district. The committee has been pulled together through the office of Baltimore County Councilman David Marks, who has proposed a nine-member council (instead of seven) to make it happen. Transparency and public participation are foundations for the group. The committee has four members, and would like to add more. The goal is to assemble a team with diversity of backgrounds, interests and political leanings to represent Towson as a whole. The group is enthusiastic and invested in their mission.
