Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker III has been elected to serve as the President of the County Executives of America, the only non-partisan association dedicated specifically to chief elected county officials.
From coverage in the Gazette:
“I’m really excited about the next two years of heading up this organization,” Baker said. “This is a great way to promote Prince George’s County and raise our profile on a national stage.”
Baker said his priorities as president of the Washington D.C.-based nonprofit include advocating for county governments at the national level, adding that the majority of people in the U.S. live within county jurisdictions.
“We want to make sure our voice is heard, at the White House, in Congress and among policy makers,” Baker said.
