Final Day Focuses on Health Care, Countywide Map Amendment and Teambuilding
The Prince George’s County Council convened the final day of its Annual Retreat today, January 8, with discussions on the Council’s role as the Board of Health, the University of Maryland Capital Health and the Countywide Map Amendment. The two-day meeting was held in the Terrapin Room, at The Hotel at the University of Maryland, in College Park.
Council Members opened the day’s session with a University of Maryland Capital Region Health update provided by Chief Medical Officer Dr. Joseph Wright; President, Dr. Sherry Perkins; and Senior Vice President Tiffany Sullivan. Presentations focused on the University of Maryland Medical system, and University of Maryland Capital Region Health campus development.
Montgomery County Council At-Large Member, Hans Reimer, joined the retreat during the mid-day session to participate in an At-Large Jurisdiction case-study and dialogue, followed by a question and answer session with former Prince George’s County Council Members Camille Exum and Jim Esteep, both of whom also served as Council Chair.
Council Chair Todd M. Turner (D) – District 4, said the retreat offered an important opportunity for Council Members to set the tone for a successful Legislative Year.
“Taking time to come together, explore the work ahead, and share our ideas and priorities was very important for this new 11-member body. ‘Service. Community. Progress,’ is the theme for this Legislative Year, and served as the focus for our Council Retreat. We will continue to build on this in our continued service to County residents.”
The retreat concluded with a Countywide Map Amendment presentation, teambuilding exercises and communications overview.
