“I am honored to serve as the 2022 Chair of the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission (PRTC). Public transportation is an intricate part of our region and I will continue what every chair before me has accomplished, and that is achieve our goal of being recognized as the easier way for people to get where they want to go through multiple and convenient transit options”, said Chairman Angry.
Supervisor Angry was elected in April 2019 to represent the Neabsco Magisterial District for the Prince William Board of County Supervisors and is the first African American to ever serve as a Supervisor on the Board of County Supervisors.
