Craig Rice, President of the Montgomery County Council is facing suspension of his driver’s license because he owes more than $1000 in unpaid traffic and parking tickets. Rice earns $114,000 per year as president of the County Council.

The newly-elected president of the Montgomery County Council already has an issue to deal with, and it has nothing to do with politics. Rather, Council President Craig Rice’s issues stem from $1,265 in unpaid parking and traffic tickets from the past three years.

Documents reviewed by ABC7 News indicate Rice, who was named council president on Dec. 3, has compiled a debt of $1,065 in Washington, D.C. The tab includes five tickets for infractions like speeding, illegal parking and outdated tags. The Annapolis Department of Transportation reports Rice owes the capital city $110 for two expired parking meter citations, while Montgomery County says the charismatic 41-year-old hasn’t paid a $90 traffic ticket.
