ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Gov. Martin O'Malley has appointed Nina Harper as a delegate for Baltimore's 45th legislative district.
The governor announced the appointment on Friday.
Harper, a Democrat, will fill the vacancy left by the death of Hattie Harrison, who died last month.

She also has served as a liaison between Oliver community residents and government agencies and businesses.
