Prince George's and MoCo Execs Break Bread Over Water

County executives Jack Johnson and Ike Leggett met as planned yesterday afternoon to try to break the stalemate over the search for a new general manager at the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission.

The six commissioners, three each appointed by Johnson and Leggett, are divided along county lines over who should lead the agency that has a history of infighting and is struggling to fix an aging infrastructure.

Jim Keary, a spokesman for Johnson, said the two Democrats had pledged during their meeting to work in the coming weeks to "take care of the leadership void."

Patrick Lacefield, a spokesman for Leggett, had a similar message. "They had a good meeting and they're going to work to get this thing resolved."

But it was unclear exactly how the two would find common ground among the commissioners.

"I guess they're going to be doing a lot of talking," Lacefield said. "I can't really tell you more."

What was also a mystery was the location of their meeting. Neither spokesman could say.
