PICA has a fifth board member

Just in time for tomorrow’s vote on whether to approve the city's five-year financial plan, the Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority has a fifth board member.

Attorney Wadud Ahmed, who has already served on the board for two years, with that term expiring Jan 31., has been reappointed to the board by the state Senate Democrats, PICA Executive Director Uri Monson confirmed today. The other four unpaid board seats had already been filled, by the state Senate Republicans, the state House Republicans and Democrats and the Governor.

Ahmed is a trial lawyer with Ahmed & Zaffarese LLC. and a former Philadelphia prosecutor. The board will meet tomorrow to discuss approval of the city’s five-year financial plan.
