by MCS Staff

The 20th Montgomery County Council has officially taken office after being sworn in this morning. They begin their work immediately and have a Council meeting on Tuesday in Rockville. The inauguration ushered in the 20th Council under the County’s current form of government. The current County Council has nine members—four at-large and five district Councilmembers. Voters approved a Charter Amendment to change the Council composition to 11 members—four at-large and seven district Councilmembers. The Council districts were reapportioned to accommodate the new districts.

The Councilmembers include incumbents Gabe Albornoz (at-large), Evan Glass (at-large), Will Jawando (at-large), Andrew Friedson (new District 1) and Sidney Katz (new District 3). Newly elected Councilmembers include Laurie-Anne Sayles (at-large), Marilyn Balcombe (new District 2), Kate Stewart (new District 4), Kristin Mink (new District 5), Natali Fani-González (new District 6) and Dawn Luedtke (new District 7).

In addition to adding new County Council seats, the new Council is the first in County history where women are the majority. Six of the 11 members who were sworn in are women.
