An Anne Arundel County resident, Mr. Snead most recently served as Head Transportation Planner for the Baltimore County Department of Public Works.

Mr. Snead has also held transportation planning and regulatory roles with Arlington County, VA; Los Angeles County; and the Boston Metropolitan Planning Organization.
"As a proud Anne Arundel County resident, I vow to invest my time and energy into further enhancing a multi-modal transportation network which is safe, accessible, efficient, and affordable for our residents and visitors,” Mr. Snead said. “I have a vested interest in using ingenuity and innovation to enhance the built environment and transportation network for our great community."
Mr. Snead takes over leadership of the office from Mr. Robinson, who led the implementation of Move Anne Arundel!, the County’s first Transportation Functional Master Plan.
“I want to thank Ramond for his dedicated service to the county, establishing the Office of Transportation, creating our transportation plan, and always promoting it with great enthusiasm,” County Executive Pittman said.
