COG picks new leaders; Pr. George's County's Harrison named chair
Prince George's County Council member Andrea Harrison was elected chairman of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments for 2011 on Wednesday. The COG Board is made up of local and state elected officials from 21 jurisdictions within the District, Maryland and Virginia.
Harrison (D-Springdale), who was sworn in to office May 19, 2008, after a special election to fill a vacated seat, was reelected in 2010. She served as the council's vice chairman in 2010, and also served a vice chairman of the Council of Government's board for the past two years.
COG also elected Frank Principi and Phil Mendelson as vice-chairmen. Principi has served as the Woodbridge District supervisor on the Prince William Board of County Supervisors since 2008. Mendelson, a previous COG chairman and president, has served as an at-large D.C. Council member since 1998.
