“I thank all of the Charter Commission nominees for their willingness to serve, and I wish them luck in front of the whole Council. I have faith they will conduct a transparent, comprehensive review of our County Charter,” Mayor Victorino said. “I encourage all residents to follow the commission’s progress closely and participate in the process of creating the best government possible to serve our people.”
