Your News & Updates from the Office of Community Engagement and Constituent Services (CECS)
Dear Community Leaders and Members of District 1,

Happy Holidays! County Executive Pittman, and all of his staff, wish each and every one of you a safe and happy holiday season filled with quality time with your loved ones. We are looking forward to the week ahead and we hope you are as well!

Last Thursday, the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force presented their preliminary report. The County Executive was pleased to receive the report and will carefully review all of its recommendations. The preliminary report can be viewed HERE and the task force welcomes your feedback. If you have any questions or comments, we encourage you to submit them HERE.

Are you looking for a way to get involved in the new year? The Odenton Town Center Advisory Committee, Social Services Board, Pension Oversight Commission, and the Severn River Commission all have vacancies and are soliciting applications. Read more about each board or commission HERE and then decide if one these are the right place for you to get involved!

Ms. Jenese Jones, the Co-Director of CECS and the District 1 Officer, recently accepted a new position that furthers her career goals. We will miss Jenese. We are very thankful for her dedicated service to Anne Arundel County and we wish her the best in this next phase of her career. Over the next handful of weeks, we will be hiring someone to represent the County Executive in your communities. In the meantime, please send any constituent concerns or meeting requests to Ms. Thelma Ubi, the Coordinator for the Office of Community Engagement and Constituent Services at exubi999@aacounty.org . Ms. Ubi will make sure that your concern/request gets to the right person and that someone follows up. We thank you for you patience. 

Thank you for all that each of you do to make Anne Arundel County the Best Place For All.

Happy Holidays,
