D.C. Taxi Drivers Elected to Association Leadership Positions

Because None of the Positions Are Contested, No Election Scheduled

On Saturday, Jan. 25, seven D.C. taxi drivers were nominiated and elected by acclamation to the Leadership Council of the Washington, D.C.

The drivers will begin their terms on the Leadership Council on March 1, 2014, and the terms run through Feb. 28, 2015.

The following drivers were elected to the Leadership Council:
