The Commissioners of St. Michaels have appointed Aida Khalil to fill the remainder of the term vacated by former Commissioner Jaime Windon who resigned earlier this month. Khalil was sworn in and seated at the start of the commissioners’ Wednesday night meeting.
Khalil has a lifelong history of serving others, including humanitarian missions overseas to aid refugees from the war in Syria. As the owner/operator of Aida’s Victoriana Inn, she has been a successful businesswoman and a booster of civic causes in St. Michaels for the past 16 years.
She currently serves as secretary of the St. Michaels Business Association and previously served on the St. Michaels Planning Commission and the Town of St. Michaels Tourism Board.
Commission President Michael Bibb said he and the other commissioners look forward to working with Khalil as the town adjusts to a post-pandemic economy.
“Her expertise as a businesswoman and her enthusiasm for giving back to the community are a real asset,” Bibb says. “We hope the residents of St. Michaels will welcome her and support her efforts on our behalf. We are lucky to have people of her caliber willing to step forward.”
Khalil’s term will expire in June 2022.
