The Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee voted Tuesday evening to send a new delegate to Annapolis for the General Assembly session that begins next Wednesday. Bernice Mireku-North, an attorney and criminal justice reformer, was supported by 14 members of the committee after two rounds of voting during an emergency meeting to choose a replacement for Del. Eric Luedtke. Luedtke, the former House majority leader, is leaving his District 14 post after 12 years to work as chief legislative officer for Gov.-elect Wes Moore’s incoming administration. County Democratic officials planned to forward Mireku-North’s nomination to Gov. Larry Hogan (R), who will make the appointment to the vacant position, overnight.
