Installation Ceremony
On December 3, I had the honor of being sworn in to the Howard County Council, representing District 3.

I am joined by County Councilmembers Liz Walsh (District 1), Opel Jones (District 2), Deb Jung (District 4), and David Yungmann (District 5).

I look forward to working with my fellow County Councilmembers and our new County Executive, Dr. Calvin Ball!
Council Updates
Following the Installation Ceremony, the County Council held its first legislative session on December 4th to determine Council leadership positions and appointments. I'm honored to serve as the Chair of the County Council, with Councilmember Opel Jones serving as Vice-Chair! The full list of leadership positions and appointments are listed below.

Yesterday, the County Council held its first Monthly Meeting, where we discussed the Hazard Mitigation Plan with the Office of Emergency Management and received a progress update on Historic Ellicott City from the Department of Public Works.
