WASHINGTON – The D.C. Council has elected at-large Councilmember Phil Mendelson interim chairman.
Mendelson rises to the District’s second-highest local elected office following last week’s resignation of Kwame Brown, who pleaded guilty to bank fraud and a misdemeanor campaign finance violation.
A special election will be held this fall to elect a chairman that will serve out the remainder of Brown’s term.
