The Montgomery County Council has named eight people to the new Montgomery Organizational Reform Commission. The commission, composed of County residents who are experienced in government, business or non-profit service delivery, will help guide the County toward creating efficient models for providing services and operations.
The group recommend potential reorganization or consolidation of functions performed by County government and County-funded agencies. The resolution’s chief sponsor on the Council was Councilmember Roger Berliner, who worked with County Executive Ike Leggett toward creation of the commission.
The Council and County Executive each designated four members to serve on the commission and each recommended one member as co-chair.
Serving as co-chairs are Vernon H. Ricks, Jr., of Potomac, a former Takoma Park City Councilmember who has served on the boards of directors of Maryland Municipal League and the National League of Cities, and Richard Wegman of Bethesda, the former chief counsel and staff director of the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Governmental Affairs. Ricks was recommended by the Council and Wegman was Leggett’s choice. Read more.
