Togo D. West Jr., a former Clinton administration secretary of the Army and of Veteran Affairs, is leaving the board on the heels of Rokey W. Suleman II, as the city prepares for primary elections that for the first time will take place in April. The board’s chief technology officer, Paul Stenbjorn, has been serving as interim executive director.
“Mr. West is to be praised for his efforts to improve the functioning of the District’s elections system,” said Ms. Bowser, chairman of the Committee on Government Operations that oversees the elections board. “He joined the Board at a trying time and saw it through many reforms and a special election.”
