Griffith Delegation Chair in Pri. Geo.
Del. Melony G. Griffith (D-Prince George's) has been elected chairman of Prince George's 23-member delegation to the House of Delegates. Griffith's colleagues chose her unanimously yesterday.
Griffith, who was elected to the House in 1998 and sits on the powerful House Appropriations Committee, said she hopes to use her intimate knowledge of the state's budget process to leverage funding for Prince George's in a tight economic times.
"Obviously, these are ridiculously difficult times in terms of the fiscal challenges facing the state," she said. "As a member of the appropriations committee, I will be positioned to represent Prince George's County on budget matters."
