Jolene Ivey to lead county house delegation

Delegate Jolene Ivey (D-47)

Delegate Jolene Ivey (D- Cheverly) has been elected to chair the Prince George’s County House Delegation for the next two years. Ivey, the wife of former Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Glenn Ivey, was elected in 2006 and reelected in 2010 to a second term. Ivey’s election to replace Meloney Griffith took place at a delegation meeting Wednesday. Ivey is seen as a honest broker who has a strong relationship with County Executive Rushern Baker, something that became strained last session after Baker and Griffith went head to head over legislation to expand gaming into Prince George’s County.

Ivey will take over as delegation head when the legislature returns in January.
