Rockville to Honor Barve, Reichard for Years of Service to the City

Barve Reichard Reception

Rockville, Maryland, May 19 — The Mayor and Council welcome community members to join them as they honor former Del. Kumar P. Barve and Kenneth Reichard, former assistant to Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, on Monday, June 12 at City Hall, 111 Maryland Ave.

There will be a reception at 5:30 p.m. and a presentation at 6 p.m. recognizing Barve and Reichard for their many years of service to Rockville. A regular meeting of the Mayor and Council begins at 7 p.m.

Barve announced his resignation from the Maryland House of Delegates in April after Gov. Wes Moore appointed him to the state’s Public Service Commission. Barve had represented District 17, including the City of Rockville, in the House since 1991 and had served as chair of the House Environment and Transportation Committee since 2015.

Reichard, a Rockville native and Richard Montgomery High School graduate, retired in April after leading Cardin’s Montgomery County office since 2006, the beginning of Cardin’s first term in the United States Senate. Cardin announced earlier this month that he will not seek reelection when his third term expires in January 2025.
