Rice Elected New County Council VP

Craig Rice, of Germantown, replaces Nancy Navarro, who is council presdient.

Montgomery County Council elected council member Craig Rice, D-Dist. 2, of Germantown, as its new vice president.

Rice, a former state delegate, was elected to the council in 2010. He is a member of the council’s education and health and human services committees.

Rice repalces Nancy Navarro, D-Dist. 4, who was elected president—the first Latina at that perch. Navarro replaces Roger Berliner.

Rice and Navarro noted how the county’s demographics have changed, shifting to a majority-minority population, The Washington Post reports.  In the article, Rice goes on to say:  “It is fitting that the face of our [council] reflects that change.”

Traditionally, council vice presidents succeed the president from the prior year.
