Bill Rittelmeyer | Burgess

Phone: 301-845-2650 Email Bill

Bill Rittelmeyer moved to Woodsboro in January 1994 with his wife and 2 young children.  Since settling in Woodsboro, he has been an active volunteer in the Woodsboro New Midway Recreation Council as a soccer coach for many years and lead coordinator of the soccer program for three of those years.  He was also involved with the baseball and basketball programs.  He continues to volunteer with the Woodsboro Fire Company helping out with the monthly breakfast and annual carnival.

Bill’s interest in local government began in 1994 when he was asked by a neighbor to attended a town council meeting to support a street light request.  There were other issues of interest at the time that brought him back for additional meetings. His interest in the town and local issues grew into regular attendance at the monthly meetings.  His regular attendance allowed him to stay up to date on town business.  Because Bill was current on town activities and attended meetings regularly, he was appointed to the Woodsboro Town Council in December of 2006 to replace Commissioner Kline who was retiring and moving out of town and was no longer eligible to serve.  He served out the remaining term and was re-elected to a 4 year term in the spring of 2009.  While his main focus for the town is streets and sidewalks, he has been involved in other areas depending on need and additional areas when requested.

Bill lives with his wife, Young-Suk, in Copper Oaks.  His children are graduates of Walkersville High School and are currently attending college.
