On Tuesday, December 6, Prince George's County Council held the 2016-2017 Gavel Exchange Ceremony. The Council reelected Derrick Davis for Council Chair and Dannielle Glaros as Vice Chair for the 2017 Legislative Year.
During this final Council session of Legislative Year 2016, I proposed and received unanimous support from my colleagues for
, a resolution to denounce anti-immigrant activity, racial bias, discrimination, hate speech, hate crimes, and harassment. Prince George's County is a welcoming community that is strong because of our diversity. Amid post-election tensions, we are proud to send a clear message that the County will continue be a safe and inviting place for all residents.
I am pleased for the privilege to continue to serve the wonderful residents of District 2 and Prince George's County. As we look forward to the New Year, I will continue to work diligently for you. In Legislative Year 2017, Chair Davis has appointed me to serve as Vice Chair of the Council's Public Safety and Fiscal Management committee, and I will also serve as Vice Chair of the Council's Health, Education, and Human Services committee.
Together we have achieved a lot, but there is more work to be done. I hope I can continue to count on your support. Below are some District 2 activities I held in December 2016 and upcoming events planned for 2017.
Wishing you a prosperous New Year,
