Public Safety Commission elects new chair

Wednesday, February 5, 2020 by Jessi Devenyns

With the departure of Ed Scruggs, the Public Safety Commission was left without a permanent chair at its February reunion. On Monday, former chair Rebecca Webber led the meeting, and one of the first items of business she brought before the body was the election of a new chair. She nominated Commissioner Meghan Hollis, saying she was “very well qualified” for the position. With no other nominations to compete for the post, the commission voted unanimously to elect Hollis, who will chair her first meeting in March. Scruggs left the commission to become a regional organizing director for the 2020 Michael Bloomberg campaign.
