Turner and council have opportunity to send signal on Johnson with their return tomorrow, Plus Happening This Week

When the Prince George’s County Council returns this week from their recess last week (in order to attend the annual MACO conference) they will have an opportunity to send a clear signal to Leslie Johnson about her continued service. Tomorrow they could adopt a resolution of no-confidence that would surely pass the council and strip her of any benefits the seat offers, or they can do nothing and give her the signal that her continuation on the body will be accepted. The agenda for the meeting which can be seen here does not make any mention of Councilwoman Johnson but it does note the group will meet in executive session at the conclusion of their meeting to discuss personnel matters. The last time this happened with respect to Mrs. Johnson she was stripped of all committee assignments and the right to represent the body in an official capacity.
