Prince George’s County Council Member Derrick L. Davis (D) – District 6, has been elected to serve as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) for the second consecutive year. Loudoun County Supervisor Matthew Letourneau will serve as Chairman and District of Columbia Council Member Robert White will also serve as Vice Chair.
Council Member Davis says he looks forward to continuing his service on the COG Board as Vice Chair.
“I appreciate the confidence and support of my fellow COG board members, and I am honored to continue serving in this regional leadership position for the second consecutive year. As a board member, I have the unique opportunity to work across jurisdictional lines to address a number of critical issues in our region, including transportation, workforce development, economic development and emergency preparedness. I look forward to continuing this work alongside Chairman Letourneau and Vice Chair White.”
COG is an independent, nonprofit association of 23 local governments supported by financial contributions from its member governments, Federal and State grants and contracts, and donations from foundations and the private sector. COG connects leaders across borders to help shape strong communities in Metropolitan Washington.
The Board of Directors is COG’s governing body and is responsible for its overall policies, functions, and funds. Board members are appointed each year by the participating local governments and by caucuses of state legislative delegations from the region.
