Pr. George's Leaders Postpone China Trip
Prince George's County Executive Jack B. Johnson (D) has decided to postpone a planned 10-day visit to China next week.
Johnson and a delegation of about 25 county employees, lawmakers and business owners that included council member Thomas R. Hendershot (D-New Carrollton) were scheduled to leave Thursday.
John Erzen, a spokesman for Johnson, said early yesterday that Johnson delayed the trip because of concerns about the deadly avian flu. Later Erzen said the delay was the result of scheduling conflicts.
