Prince George’s County Council Chair Dannielle Glaros (D) – District 3, has been appointed to serve as Chair of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) Region Forward Coalition.

The Region Forward Coalition will convene its first meeting of 2018 on Friday, January 26, 11:00 a.m. at the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, 777 N. Capitol Street, Washington, DC.

“This year, the Region Forward Coalition will focus on several overarching goals, but we want to do this through a lens of equity and inclusion so we can grow jobs and increase opportunities for more of our neighbors,” said Chair Glaros. “I look forward to working with Vice Chair Connelly, Vice Chair White, and Coalition members on the policies, practices and programs that support Region Forward’s vision of creating a more prosperous, accessible, livable and sustainable Metropolitan Washington.”

Region Forward is a commitment by COG and its member governments, who together seek to create a more prosperous, accessible, livable, and sustainable metropolitan Washington. The Region Forward Coalition provides cross-cutting regional policy capacity and long-range regional planning recommendations to the COG Board of Directors.
