Gazette: PG council and county executive clash over 911 call center; argue over who's at fault for construction delays

Prince George's council and county executive clash over 911 call center; Leaders argue over who's at fault during ongoing facility's construction delays
Gazette, 28 Sep 2010 (Valentine).
... "The county executive has put us in a position where not doing anything now is dangerous," Dernoga said. "He's been acting like there isn't a need for a County Council."

Dernoga said the major capital expense should also have gone before voters as a referendum.

"The county executive went out of his way to make life difficult for this council in the last few months," Dernoga said, declining to go into detail about the difficulties. "They tried to go around the voters. They tried to go around the council." ...

  1. Jack Johnson cannot submit a spending request to County Council in time to go to referendum and cannot bother to comment when the Gazette reports on it? Such aloofness is typical of this administration and disserves Prince George's County. I hope parties such as Mr. Emory do not continue to lump the Council in with Mr. Johnson. This doesn't reflect well on the County, but that's squarely Mr. Johnson's fault.
