The election of Ms. Gooden increases the number of directors for WGL Holdings and Washington Gas from eight to nine.

“We are delighted to have Ms. Gooden join our Board of Directors. Her experience, skills, and knowledge are the perfect combination to make her an effective board member for our company,” said Terry D.
