Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley says he'll nominate former Rep. Michael Barnes to represent Montgomery County the Metro Board.

Barnes is a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy who represented Maryland's 8th District in the late '70s and early '80s.

If approved, Barnes will replace Peter Benjamin, a long-time Metro Board member who announced his resignation this morning.

Benjamin is the sixth board member to resign or to be forced out in the past two months. More resignations are expected in the coming weeks.
