Ex-D.C. Council Member Brandon Todd Joins Washington Gas

Former D.C. Council member Brandon Todd, who represented Ward 4 from 2015-2021 as a Democrat, has been hired by Washington Gas to be director of corporate policy.

“We are delighted to have Brandon join the Washington gas team—his perspective, depth and breadth of experience, along with a deep-rooted commitment to the D.C. area and surrounding communities, will shape our corporate policy objectives across all three of our service territories,” Donald “Blue” Jenkins, the president of Washington Gas, said.

Todd’s started his new job on Jan.4 at the District-headquartered utility company. His duties include spearheading the company’s public policy group, supervising federal, state and local government relations in the District, Maryland and Virginia. Washington Gas has over 1.2 million customers in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

In addition, Todd will develop and execute Washington Gas’s external relations strategy advocating for its business and policy priorities among public regulators, legislators and important partners and stakeholders. The former D.C. council member will also be the company’s link to government, community organizations and industry trade groups.

A graduate of Eastern Senior High School, with a bachelor’s degree in communications from Bowie State University and a Master of Business Administration from Trinity Washington University, Todd worked on the campaigns and in the council office of then-Ward 4 D.C. Council member Muriel Bowser. When Bowser became mayor in 2015, Todd won a special election in May that year to succeed her.

Todd chaired the Committee on Government Operations. In the June 2020 Democratic Party primary, Todd lost his reelection bid to Janeese Lewis George.

Todd said he looks forward to working for Washington Gas.

“I’m excited to join Washington Gas—a company committed to serving its customers with affordable and reliable energy and giving back to the community,” he said. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to be a part of a great team and lead the company’s public policy efforts.”
