Gross Recognized with Annual Public Service Award

 

Fairfax County Supervisor (Mason District) Penelope Gross was honored at yesterday’s annual meeting of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments with the Elizabeth and David Scull Metropolitan Public Service Award. Mary K. Hill, Prince William County Supervisor and COG Board Chair, was also presented a Scull award.

The Scull award is presented each year to elected officials who have made significant contributions to the region during their time in office. Gross and Hill were recognized for their distinguished service and commitment to regionalism, including their leadership on a variety of issues ranging from water and air quality to transportation safety and regional homeland security.

Gross is a member of the COG Board of Directors and yesterday was also announced as one of COG’s new vice presidents for 2004. Earlier this year she was appointed to chair COG’s newly reorganized Public Safety Policy Committee, leading that committee as it focused on impaired driving, truck safety and developing a stolen property database. Gross was also appointed COG secretary-treasurer in 2003 and is responsible for quarterly financial presentations to the COG Board. In addition, she served on COG’s Pension Plan Administrative Committee, headed the COG Board subcommittee responsible for revamping the executive director’s performance evaluation process and chaired the Water Supply Task Force.

“Gross has been a lively and active participant in every issue that has come before the Council of Governments, from housing to transportation to education,” said Robert Dorsey, board president pro tem. “She is dedicated to regionalism and has been a leader on major projects affecting COG as an organization.”
