Montgomery group, headed by former Lockheed Martin exec, to scrutinize Pepco

Montgomery County

State regulators are investigating Pepco's reliability after a summer of long outages, and now a high-profile citizens group appointed by Montgomery County is jumping in as well.

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett has tapped county resident Norman R. Augustine, a University of Maryland regent and former senior Pentagon official, to head the county's Pepco Work Group.

Augustine -- a former head of Lockheed Martin, the Red Cross and the Boy Scouts of America -- will chair the dozen-member body, which is supposed to figure out why Pepco has fallen short and what should be done to build a "best in class" utility. It has three to six months to deliver a final report.
