Evan Glass discusses future of next potential County Council
County Council Vice President Evan Glass was first in the Democratic primary for an at-large council seat, topping a list of eight candidates.
Glass said the new council, given that all the Democratic primary winners prevail in the general election, will be more representative of the county as a whole. Council tradition would mean he would be elected to serve as president of the body if he wins the general election–at a time where the council is growing, where six women could be seated at the dais and the racial and ethnic makeup would be more diverse.
It also is incumbent on every council member to work better with County Executive Marc Elrich, given that he wins the general election, Glass said. [Maryland Matters]
