The Allegany County Legislature passed a resolution on February 8 recognizing the contributions of Robert Langdon, a Junior Engineer within the Department of Public Works.

The resolution details the hard work and dedication Mr. Langdon has displayed while working for the County. He was hired in 2011 as an Engineer Technician, and has since received promotions to Senior Engineer Technician in 2017 and to his current title in October 2022.

“He is passionate about his work and does it with professionalism, thoroughness, and attention to detail,” Windus said. “Rob is also a great leader and mentor. He is always willing to help others with whatever is asked of him.”

In addition to his work in the Department of Public Works, Mr. Langdon has displayed a commitment to the community with volunteering to coach our local youth.
