Dear Friends,

Thank you to the many people who were able to join my District 3 Virtual Town Hall last night. Updates on COVID-19, development, school construction, the budget, and more were shared. If you were not able to join us you can watch the presentation here

Special thanks to Census
 Outreach Coordinator, Jordan Baucum Colbert, and Prince George's County School Board Members Bryan Swann (District 4), Joshua Thomas (District 2) and Pamela Boozer-Strother (District 3) for joining the meeting.

I have created an online form in English and Spanish to help connect District 3 residents with resources and assistance.

The top portion of the online form lists numerous resources. The bottom portion requests contact information and a brief description of needs. My team and I will use this form to help connect District 3 residents in need with with assistance. Please share the link with others. (Note this shortened link it is case-sensitive.) Not sure if you live in D3? Look at the map here.

Donate to the Employ Prince George's Employee Relief Fund. More than 3,000 applications have been received already and additional funding is needed to support all applications.
Support the Capital Area Food Bank. CAFB has purchased as much food in the past few weeks as they normally purchase in an entire year. They have already provided thousands of boxes of food to District 3 residents in need.

At New Carrollton Station, Metro is seeking to update the master plan as part of a joint development with Urban Atlantic that would add two new building sites to create an urbanized town center and more walkable community.  To accommodate the expansion, Metro would close the surface parking lots on the east side of the station and replace the County parking garage with a new, larger Metro garage.
